R-Power said the Terminal Use Agreement for the LNG Terminal project was signed with Bangladesh state-run PetroBangla.

"The project agreements for the power project have already been executed with Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB)," it added.

The integrated project entails an investment outlay of over $1 billion, which represents the largest foreign direct investment (FDI) in Bangladesh and the largest investment in the country's energy sector, the statement said.

"Reliance Power will relocate one module of world-class equipment procured from internationally reputed original equipment manufacturers for its 2,250 MW combined cycle power project at Samalkot in Andhra Pradesh, for the Phase-1 project in Bangladesh," it said.

The MoU for the integrated project was signed in June 2015 in Dhaka during the Bangladesh visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"The Reliance project will give a tremendous boost to the economic and industrial growth of Bangladesh and will enhance the energy security of the country with clean, green and reliable LNG based power," it added.
