In Bangladesh we hear about Govt. shipyards like those in N'Ganj and Khulna and private shipyards like Western Marine, but not many talk about Karnafuly, which is a huge yard in their own right.

As the need for Tugboats (of various sizes) and Large Cutter suction dredgers in Bangladesh have exploded, Karnafuly has risen to meet the challenge (forming a large scale JV with internationally renowned suppliers of dredgers, such as IHC Holland and VOSTA LMG). This is an image of the tugboats and dredgers in their yard in various stages of build-progress (not a video link below).










Another piece of great news is that other than CDDL in the Govt. sector, Karnafuly themselves have taken on the job of building the second super high capacity Dry dock of their own accord in Bangladesh. This drydock will be able to handle a 100,000 DWT vessel (অথবা দুই থেকে তিনটা ফ্রিগেট ), এইবার বুইজা লন . 8-)

This development is described in their video from late last year and the image below.



Functions of Dry-dock: Shipbuilding/ repair up to 100,000 tonnes dead-weight.

Yard Area: 2805 Decimal

Basin Size: 255 m x 48 m x 14.5 m

Fabrication Shed: 2 nos (under construction)

Open Shipbuilding Area: 4,50,000 Square Feet (Four lac fifty thousand)

Powering: 1 Mega Watt

Lifting Facility (Fixed Crane): 50 tonnes

Generator: 500 x 2 KVA

Mobile Crane Capacity: 4 Mobile Crane x 25 Tonnes

Docking Capacity: 1,00,000 DWT

Lofting Facility: Available

Story about Dhaka circular road project. Sorry Bengali only.


Hmmm how about we limit how much cars can one family buy or make cars not that accessible and limit CNGs and private owned buses ?

Traffic seems like the issue

Official piling work started for 111 story Bangabandhu tri-tower.

This is a commercial project and connecting it to historical events is unprecedented and hokey. like that skyscraper hotel in PyongYang.
