BRIEF HISTORY OF PPCL

 

 

 

With the name of Power & Project Controls (PPC) and under the proprietorship of Engr. Amiya Mukherjee it set of its journey at the fag end of nineteen century and it turned into a limited company in 2003 with due accreditation. Then Engr. Amiya Mukherjee hold its helm as Managing Director, a well-experienced engineer who gathered a vast knowledge in different fields especially in the project works and power sectors. Analytically the word “POWER” stands for Electricity which is exclusively a electrical term and “PROJECT” stands for a combined work of electromechanical, electronic, automation, instrumentation and controls with related civil works. Hence “POWER & PROJECT CONTROLS” is a fundamental term to do any work whatever is the nature of the job. The company executives are very much familiar to handle the project works like power stations upto 210 MW, electrical substations up to 230 KV in power sectors and Regulating and metering Station(RMS), Customer metering station(CMS), manifold stations for the transmission and distribution network in the Gas sectors for more than fifteen years. That is why the company activities are entirely engineering oriented. Slowly and gradually the scope of works enhance a lot and to cover up the responsibilities a team of professional graduate engineers with other technical personnel are engaged to implement the work plan of PPCL. The project design, execution, installation, testing and commissioning are done by the own staff of PPCL in most of the cases. Due to the sufficient technical back up ability PPCL undertake warranty services very confidently for the project job. 

Bangladesh is an under developed country and the only natural resource is premium quality Gas. According to the recent statistics the total proven natural gas is 10.3 trillion CFT and as per the present rate of consumption the reserve will continue the demand uoto 2020. But the blessings are the discovery of new gas fields which may extend upto 50 trillion CFT in future. It is really necessary to utilize the natural gas by establishing a proper gas infrastructure.  The infrastructure of the gas sectors are  always developing. PPCL is taking this opportunity to engage its expertise for the contribution of the gas infrastructure development Project(GIDP). The top executives of PPCL have successfully completed GIDP SCADA project in the field of Instrumentation – the Heart of the project which was completed in 2003.It can be mentioned here that although the SCADA project was completed under the banner of some other company where the Managing Director of PPCL was the founder Director of that company and separated his working entity from the previous company and started to involve PPCL to execute the same nature of jobs for the future projects.

Bangladesh is passing through an acute shortage of power both in domestic and industrial sectors. In respect to the demand the power generation is not sufficient. On the other hand by using natural gas resources it is easier to generate electricity in a cheaper way. PPCL is very serious to cooperate industrial sectors to produce electricity by gas engine generator. PPCL design the power plant as per the requirement of the customer’s need, supply the plant and take the total responsibilities for installation, commissioning and aftermarket services. The engineering team of the company has been well trained by Perkins Engines Co. Ltd. UK to develop captive power generation by using small power plant. Starting from a proprietorship company, the company is registered with the Joint Stock Company of Bangladesh. Within the short span of time the company activities grow very effectively to show a rising curve. Now the company activities are not only limited to the private sectors but also to the Government sectors.       

Most importantly the planning and implementation of the works are headed by the company’s professional engineers who used to be the top executives of different companies to handle the same nature of job.
