|The only hydropower plant in Bangladesh is located at Kaptai, about 50 km from the port city of Chittagong. This plant was constructed in 1962 and is one of the biggest water resources development project of Bangladesh. After being commissioned in 1962, the plant could feed the national grid with 80 MW of electricity. In later years, the generation capacity was increased in two phases to a total of 230 MW. The plant not only plays an important role in meeting the power demand of the country but is also vital as a flood management installation for, the areas downstream.
