    Khulna Shipyard to construct warship for army

    The Khulna Shipyard is going to construct a Landing Craft Vessel Personnel (LVCP) for the Bangladesh Army.

    Army chief General Muhammad Abdul Mubin inaugurated the construction work at the shipyard on Wednesday by laying the keel. Top military and civil officials in Khulna attended the ceremony.

    Mubin in his address said that he expected that the shipyard would construct warships and other vessels for the country and would be able to export them in the near future.

    The 19.75 metre long and seven metre wide LVCP will carry solders and weaponry of the Bangladesh Army during the times of both peace and war on waterways. The shipyard is expected to hand over the LVCP to the army within a year, said a hand-out of the Press Information Department in Khulna.

    The Khulna shipyard has already built modern fire-fighting boats for the fire service, ferries for the BIWTC and a speedy patrol boat for the Bangladesh Coastguard, according to the press release.

    Khulna Shipyard, after being handed over to the navy in 1999, has built 57 new ships and pontoons, repaired 348 ships and done a lot of other work also, said the release, adding that the shipyard made a profit of Tk 16.735 crore in 2010.

    In March this year Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the construction of five warships for the Bangladesh Navy by the shipyard.

    These production will actually help reduce the cost. Gradually the capacity to build these should increase.

    May be someday we can also export at a very low cost.


    Cheers!!!

    These kind of ships are very important. Our BD-MYANMAR border is not breachable. There are only hills and forest with large trees... It is impossible to send tanks and artillerier through this.... So transport crafts are very important to launch offensive in myanmar soil..

    Well yes but apart from that, Bangladesh is a river-rich country. In order to mobilize troops and equipments within our terrain, LVCPs are quite important.
