In 2007, United Power Generation & Distribution Co. Ltd(formerly known as Malancha Holdings Ltd.) was born out of the necessity for ensuring uninterrupted, quality power supply to the industries housed within the Export Processing Zones (EPZ) of Bangladesh. The company has built and is currently operating a Natural Gas fired 86 MW power plant in Dhaka EPZ, Savar, Dhaka.
The Dhaka EPZ plant is run with state of the art European Reciprocating Engines which generates and delivers power to industries inside the EPZ . On top of supplying to the EPZ’s, the surplus energy is being provided to the PBS-1, Savar of Rural Electrification Board (REB) from Dhaka EPZ power plant.
Besides power generation, Dhaka EPZ plant also produces steam commercially for neighboring industries, by using Exhaust Gas Boilers (EGB), further improving power plant efficiency. In Dhaka EPZ, 2 Units of Khan SPP EGB installed. Currently, UPGD DEPZ has steam production capacity of 8 TPH
The entire EPC of the project was done by Neptune Commercial Ltd. (NCL), a subsidiary of United Group
