Heidelberg Cement Bangladesh

Heidelberg Cement Bangladesh Ltd., one of the leading Bangladesh cement producers, operates two cement-grinding plants in Dhaka and in Chittagong, The cement plants are powered by separate power plants in both locations. In 2003 Wärtsilä delivered a natural gas engine that upgraded the Heidelberg’s Chittagong’s power plant’s capacity to 6 MW.

After the successful delivery, Heidelberg signed an Operation and Maintenance agreement with Wärtsilä for the Chittagong plant.

The Operation and Maintenance agreement for the Chittagong plant includes the supply of spare parts, operations and technical advice. Wärstilä’s active presence and well-trained staff in Bangladesh have proven to be a true advantage for Heidelberg. “Power generation is not our core business. Since having the Operation and Maintenance contract with Wärtsilä, which is the first of its kind in Bangladesh, we have been able to focus on our core business”, says Ramakanta Bhattacharjee of Heidelberg.
