In 2014, they expanded once more with another 4 units of JMS 420, each having capacity of 1,415kW of electrical power.

Clarke Energy Bangladesh Ltd. provided engineering design drawing and installation supervision support to the site engineering staffs for successful commissioning.
In addition to the electrical output, the thermal output of the engines are used to boilers and absorption chillers to produce steam and chilled air – making this a trigeneration application.
Following the successful commissioning and operation of these gas generating sets, Badsha Textiles have subsequently ordered 12 units of JMS 420 B311 and 1 unit of JGS 312 to provide quality power for their sister company, Pioneer Denim Limited, located of Sylhet region, Bangladesh.
