Bangladesh: West Zone Power System Development Project
sector: Energy | country: Bangladesh
The project completion report (PCR) identified three appropriate project-specific lessons concerning the need for (i) a project implementation office at the Rural Electrification Board (REB) to help improve data collection, (ii) agreed principles on asset valuation, and (iii) a rationalized tariff structure. The validation agrees with the PCR on these three lessons, especially on the tariff structure as this would help provide adequate margins to the Ashuganj Power Station Company (APSCL) and the West Zone Power Distribution Company (WZPDCL). These could enable the entities in meeting future financial obligations.
