Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Ltd (TGTDCL) is implementing a project to install gas pipelines from the Bangladesh Small and Cottage Industries Corporation (BSCIC) Industrial City to Keraniganj taking future industrial interests into account.
In a press release, Titas stated on Friday that at least 1,000 industries will be established in the BSCIC Industrial City in future, which will extensively increase the demand for natural gas there.
Besides, different washing plants, dyeing factories, and many other industrial units built in Zinjira of Keraniganj will be shifted to the BSCIC Industrial City to build an environment–friendly planned city.
Titas will need Tk 50 crore to implement the project, which will provide uninterrupted gas supply in Zinjira and other industrial areas of Keraniganj, the BSCIC Industrial Park, and other sectors for the next 20 years.
The project will also resolve the current issue of low pressure in gas lines and create lots of jobs.
Currently, many factories in the BSCIC Industrial Area are experiencing low pressure in gas supply.
The BSCIC Industrial Area has around 125 factories and most of them are run by gas.
Low pressure in gas supply is causing factories huge losses.Share this post:
