USP&E Announces Sale of Natural Gas Power Plant Package to Private Firm in Bangladesh 06/24/2008

USP&E announced today the sale of a large natural gas generator package to a client in Bangladesh. A brand new customer in Chittagong will be taking receipt of their new power plant with full warranty later in 2008. Suffering under the persisting severe nationwide power crisis that is unlikely to be resolved in the near future, our friends and clients in Bangladesh are currently facing a 1500MW power shortage this summer, causing tremendous disruption to the economic and civic arenas of life. Whereas many federal and private organizations have explored rental power, many of our clients are now focusing on the purchase of new and used diesel generators instead. This was mainly due to the excessive costs per unit for these rental generators.

USP&E is very proud to have several projects in the works in Bangladesh and plans once again to deliver much more than our clients expect. Building trust since 1968, USP&E: Powering Business. Empowering People.
