  4. Picture of Rampal Power Station
  5. Rampal Power Station  The Rampal Power station is situated in Rampal Upazila of Bagerhat district in Khulna Bangladesh. It will be the biggest power station in our country.
  6. Project Details  Sponsor: Bangladesh-India Friendship Power Company Pvt. Ltd. (BIFPCL)  Parent company: Bangladesh Power Development Board, NTPC  Location: Khulna, Bangladesh  Gross Capacity: 1320 MW (2 x 660 MW)  Type: Ultra-Supercritical  Project in service: 2018
  7. Financing o The capital which might be equivalent to US $1.5 billion, will be taken as bank loans with help from the NTPC. o India and Bangladesh will fund the remaining 30% equally (15% each)
  8. Agreement  In August 2010, this project was signed between Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) and India's state-owned National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC)  On January 29, 2012, the Bangladesh Power Development Board signed an agreement with NTPC to build the plant Agreed to implement the project by 2016.  The BPDB and the NTPC agreed to implement the project on a 50:50 equity basis.  The NTPC will set up and operate the plant
  9. Government position • The government of Bangladesh rejects the allegations would adversely affect the world’s largest mangrove forest. • Importing high quality coal, build a 275 meters high chimney, Use high art technology
  10. Environment Issue • Construction of power plant at Rampal the ecosystem will be largely affected due to traffic movements, oil and chemical spillage and dredging. • The project will use deep tube wells and water of the Posur River for washing coal, which will push ground level water down and will completely destroy the ecosystem of the river (The EIA report prepared by Dr. Abdullah Harun ) • Transferring activities, shipping and barging activities at Akram point will generate noise create disturbance to the wildlife of the Sundarban.
  11. • Different types of wastes like the residue of the coal, ballast water, bilge water, oil etc produced from the Ships will be discharged to the river system and these will pollute the environment. • Ballast water, oil spillage and coal dropping might affect on Mangrove plants.
  12. According to the (WHC) • The Sundarban’s mangrove forest is the habitat of a wide range of flora;334 Flora species and 693 fauna species • 315 species of waterfowl, raptors and nine species of kingfisher and the magnificent white bellied sea eagle. The area is habitat or the Royal Bengal tiger and other threatened species,such as the estuarine crocodile and the Indian python. • If Rampal power Station came into reality these species will die or go away.
  13. We will get light by killing and push away our pride Sudarban’s Natural beauty and precious animals
  14. Resolve • We are not against the project but against building of the power plant in Rampal. The project can be transferred anywhere else, far from the Sundarban to protect it . The experts and environmentalists are really worried about the Rampal. A great number of concerned people are protesting against this project. • The government itself is violating environment law by constructing coal-based power plant at Rampal .

Notes de l'éditeur

  1. The EIA report prepared by Dr. Abdullah Harun also shows that the project will draw around 25,000 cubic metres of water every day, which is really a threat for the environment.
