Bangladesh Export Processing Zones Authority (BEPZA), is the official organ of the government of
Bangladesh to promote, attract and facilitate foreign investment in the Export Processing Zones

The estates of EPZs are committed to the Investors with necessary infrastructure facilities such as
electricity, gas, water, sewerage, etc. for the Industries invested by the Foreign Investors, and the
100% export oriented Industries. For the efficient power distribution, BEPZA has gone for the GIS
technology keeping the view that GIS was neither a fantasy nor a luxury but rather a necessity, which
was well understood by the BEPZA that GIS :
     saves space due to its compact design, where space constraints is acute
        significant savings in operating costs as it is almost maintenance free
        pre-studied designs enable to reduce industrial cycle and makes entire project quality
         controlled, reliable and ignites operation faster than any conventional systems
        safest technology while in commissioning and during operation of the substation thereafter
        Control-monitoring and protection have common man & machine interfaces which makes the
         operation flexible e.g. automated and manual operation
     continuous trouble free operation for a long and longer period to its optimal utility
