Energypac Engineering Limited is proud to be a partner in the construction of the Padma Multipurpose Bridge. Our compact substation offers a highly customizable & mobile solution for a cost-effective electric distribution system with robust performance and minimum maintenance.
Constructed at a cost of nearly $3.87 billion, the Padma Bridge is one of the largest projects Bangladesh has ever undertaken. It connects 21 districts in southwest Bangladesh with the capital, Dhaka, by road and rail and cuts travel time substantially.
The Padma Bridge marks an important milestone in independent Bangladesh’s history, as it is a symbol not just of Bangladesh’s resolve but of its growing economic capacity and development.
Energypac Engineering Limited has played a crucial role in the Bangladesh government's accomplishment in distributing electricity to 100% of the country’s population.
Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB), Bangladesh Rural Electrification Board (BREB), Dhaka Electricity Supply Company (DESCO), Dhaka Power Distribution Company (DPDC), Northern Electricity Supply Company Limited (NESCO), and Western Zone Power Distribution Company Limited (WZPDCL) are the six institutions that distribute electricity throughout Bangladesh. However, in order to provide electrical coverage to the entire population of Bangladesh, BREB had to implement many initiatives to supply electricity to the country's rural areas. Many substations were created as a result of these efforts to provide electricity to all of the country's remote places.
After the year 2014, around 600 substations and switching stations were built. Amongst them, Energypac Engineering Limited completed the work of over 400 substations and switching stations in the country's rural areas.
The goal of the government was to provide 15 lakh electric connections to the people of Bangladesh, and several grids have already been established with the support of Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB). Around 100 grids have been installed in Bangladesh since 2014. Energypac Engineering Limited has built 29 grids and conducted substantial renovation work on 40 grids in the last five years. Energypac Engineering Limited is now working on the construction of 19 additional grids.
Amongst many notable projects, Energypac Engineering Limited worked on the Payra 1320 MW Thermal Power Plant, Matarbari Power Plant, Rampal Power Station, Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant, Barapukuria Power Station, Bheramara 410 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant, Bibiyana III, 400 MW CCPP, Summit Bibiyana II Power Plant, 1627 MW Ashuganj Power Station and the 950 MW Ghorasal Power Station.
As a result, in recent years, Energypac Engineering Limited has assisted the government in bringing the whole population of the country under electric coverage by constructing dependable substations, switching stations, and grids for the efficient transmission and distribution of power.
Energypac Engineering Limited continues to add to its growing list of accolades with its second Gold Medal, National Export Trophy for the Financial Year 2017-18 under the Electric and Electronics products category. It is our immense pride to be awarded the trophy for the second time in a row by the Ministry of Commerce and the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB). On behalf of Energypac Engineering Ltd., our Director & CEO, Engr.

Additionally, Energypac has also supplied substation equipment to 24 major pharmaceutical companies like Beximco, Square, Incepta, Healthcare, ACME Laboratories, Popular, UniMed UniHealth pharmaceuticals, and Delta pharma Ltd adding to the long-standing list of pharmaceuticals served during pressing times of the pandemic.
Energypac supports the government in its vision to implement the 3076.22C project to enhance the rural electrification network across Bangladesh. The company is building 20 substations to Bangladesh’s distribution network expansion in the east and 8 more in the west up to 33/11kV on a turnkey basis. This adds to our growing list of over a hundred substations.
Energypac’s substation and power products are live and in operation in mega power projects all across the 64 districts in Bangladesh. Energypac has supplied up to 132/33kV substation to PGCB on a turnkey basis with a project value amounting to 455 Crore BDT funded by KfW.
Energypac stands as the face of electrical & technological advancement in Bangladesh, leading the headlines as the export leader. In the fiscal year of 2020-2021, it supplied 2 nos, 16/20 MVA power transformer, and 70 cast resin transformer to electrical giant Adani Electricity in Mumbai, India. These vertical cast resin transformers were the first of their kind designed with concise precision and meticulous dexterity by the research and development team to enhance and improve performance whilst reducing the overall space consumption.
Energypac has secured the trust of the Nepal Electricity Authority as a reliable power solution provider for two major turnkey projects in Nepal. This consists of the Tamghas and the Keurun substation projects with a rating of up to 132/33kV and accumulating to a total of approximately 2 million USD. This adds to our existing list of 23 substation, live and in operation all across Nepal.
Here at Energypac Engineering, we believe in learning as a continuous process irrespective of age or non-engineering educational background. Whilst a substation employs sophisticated technology and requires extensive knowledge of the technical aspects of the power equipment, it is always handy to know some key characteristics which will enable any novice to understand important operational features of the substation equipment.
One such piece of equipment is the Buchholz relay that comes with the transformer. The Buchholz relay serves as a protection device for the transformer and prevents short circuits, gas collection, oil surge, or any other faults. If a fault were to ever arise then the relay will simply shut the alarm circuit indicating to any observer that there are complications that need to be resolved before restarting the operation.
The relay does this through two processes: Gas Collection and Oil Surge.
Gas Collection: The relay collects any gas element escaping from the transformer and shuts contact as soon as the gas reaches a certain limit. If more gas were to be produced after this limit then the trip falls discontinuing the operation. This can happen as a result of oil surge from partial discharge within the transformer, low oil level, overheating of the windings, air entering the transformer from outside, or shock and vibration.
Oil Surge: The Buchholz relay is pre-set to operate and close contact at a certain oil velocity. This occurs due to oil surges from the main tank towards the conservator, electrical breakdown, disruption in pump operation, or if the Buchholz was mounted incorrectly.
Without delving too deep into the inner workings of the relay, it is crucial to note that sometimes these precautionary tripping can take place without a genuine cause or danger. In such a case, this false trip requires troubleshooting to restart the operation without losing valuable time.
Some necessary preventive actions that can be taken after the Buchholz alarm is set off, are given below
Whilst the steps provided above are not exhaustive, it is a good place to start to gather enough information to decide on the next operational action.
