The study was carried out to analyse the environmental impacts of coal mine and coalbased thermal power plant to the surrounding environment of Barapukuria, Dinajpur. The analyses of coal, water, soil and fly ash were carried out using standard sample testing methods.
Background on Plant. The Barapukuria Coal Power Plant is an existing 250 megawatt (MW) coalfired power station which is owned and operated by the Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) in Dudhipur, Dinajpur province in Bangladesh. Currently the plant has two 125 MW units, but operators are seeking to add an additional 250 MW unit.
Barapukuria Coal Power Plant Bangladesh is located at Dudhipur, Dinajpur, Bangladesh. Location coordinates are: Latitude= 25.554, Longitude= 88.95. This infrastructure is of TYPE Coal Power Plant with a design capacity of 250 MWe.
Barapukuria Power Station is located near Durgapur, Dinajpur, Bangladesh.It consists of two 125 megawatt units and one 275 MW unit. This coalfired power station was commissioned in 2006, and is operated by the Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB).
Due to the unexpected shutdown, the northern region of Bangladesh may experience unusual power cuts or low voltage problems In a major blow to the country's power sector, the Barapukuria thermal power plant in Dinajpur has been shut down owing to an acute shortage of coal after 142,000 tons of coal
The Daily Star reported that The government is considering importing coal to run Barapukuria coalbased power plant in Dinajpur as supply from the country's lone coal mine, Barapukuria Coal Mining
