The Mawa power station is a proposed 522 megawatt (MW) coal-fired in Mawa (Maowa), Munshiganj, Dhaka, Bangladesh.
The Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) sought proposals from private generators to build, own, and operate coal plants. Among the projects, one would be near Maowa (Mawa) in Munshiganj district.
The BPDB stated that one of the proposed power stations would be on land "at the bank of river Padma (10 km up or down stream of Proposed Padma Bridge), Maowa, Munshiganj, Bangladesh." In preliminary documentation for the project, BPDB stated that the private developer would be responsible for locating and purchasing the site and arranging coal supply and loading facilities.
According to a January 2014 report in The Daily Star, the BPDB "signed 3 IPP contracts for coal fired power generation with Orion groups for 1,200 MW (522 MW plant at Mawa, Munshiganj, 300 MW plants at Labanchara, Khulna and at Anwara, Chittagong)...As per the contract, the PDB agreed to buy per kilowatt hour (each unit) electricity at 5.8497 US cents (Tk 4.095) from Mawa plant..."
