Test transmission of power supply from Adani's 1,600MW coal-fired power station in the Indian state of Jharkhand to Bangladesh started at 7:38pm on Thursday although issues of power tariff are yet to be resolved.

According to a Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB) Facebook status, the electricity transmission was synchronised with Bangladesh's national grid on a test basis.

"More or less 50MW of electricity from the Adani plant entered Bangladesh at 9pm for the national grid through newly built transmission lines and substations," the PGCB said.

The company said it built a 134km 400kV transmission line, from the bordering Mankasha area through Rohanpur to Bogura. "Also, a 400/230kV substation was installed at Bogura to facilitate the evacuation of power."
