Bashundhara’s Biggest LPG bottle-making plant starts production
Mongla, Nov 27, 2012: Bashundhara Liquefied Petroleum Gas Limited (BLPGL), an enterprise of the Bashundhara Group, has set up the country’s only and mega facility for making international standard gas cylinder at Sundarban Industrial Complex at Mongla, says a press release. Sayem Sobhan, managing director of the Bashundhara Group, inaugurated production of the plant on Friday.
Senior deputy managing director Belayet Hossain, deputy managing director Mustafizur Rahman, senior executive director Mahbubuzzaman, adviser for press and media Mohammad Abu Tayeb of the Bashundhara Group, general manager sales and marketing Shahin Ahmed, general manager operations Engineer Zahid attended the inaugural function, among others..
The Bashundhara Liquefied Petroleum Gas Limited, since its inception, has solely been depending on the gas cylinders produced at one of its sister concern – the Bashundhara Steel Complex Limited (BSCL) at Manikganj.
In the backdrop of fast depleting reserve of the natural gas, the government in the recent years started encouraging private entrepreneurs to promote bottled LPG as alternative fuel for domestic purposes and small industries.
The project has been implemented under the technical support from two Chinese companies – Hunan Technical Import and Export Corporation and Jiangyan City Yuehai Manufacturing Company Limited.
The production capacity of the plant is 100 thousand cylinders of different size a month.
Addressing a post inaugural briefing deputy managing director of the Bashundhara Group Mustafizur Rahman said that the company would pursue the policy of serving the nation by offering pragmatic alternative to fuel crisis.
“We’ll try hard to make the product affordable and available all over the country,” he said responding to a question regarding the price of the refilled bottle of LPG.
