Officials of the state-run Bangladesh Electricity Development Board said there was a problem with electricity distribution in the eastern part of the country. Electricity department spokesman Shamim Hasan said that all power plants in Dhaka and other major cities came to a standstill, disrupting power supply.

He said engineers are trying to find out where and why the fault occurred and it could take hours to restore power supply.

Bangladesh’s recent impressive economic growth is threatened by power shortages as the government has suspended operations of all diesel-powered power plants to cut import spending.

Diesel-powered power plants account for about six percent of Bangladesh’s electricity generation, so their closure cuts production by up to 1500 MW.
