Profile of KSBL

Karnafuly Shipbuilders (Pvt) Ltd (KSBL) having one of the largest privately owned shipyards in Bangladesh was established at Chittagong in 1994. The shipyard is built over eight acres of land, having fully equipped machine shops and 2 slipways each with a length of 650 feet. Two vessels each up to 3,500 tons can be docked at a time. ‘Karnafuly Dry Dock’, the only private owned dry dock in Bangladesh is under construction by KSBL which can accommodate vessels up to 80,000 tons. It is to be noted that the government owned ʽʽChittagong Drydock’’ can accommodate vessels of 20,000 tons only. It is the only facility for repair of ocean going vessels beside a busy port, Chittagong Port Authority. Therefore after completion of the ʽʽKarnafuly Drydock’’, huge capacity for repair of ocean going vessel will be developed in the country. This will facilitate huge foreign currency earnings and will contribute to the national economy.
Services rendered by KSBL are- design, drawing and building of Dredger, Tug, Barge, Cargo Ship, Fishing Trawler, Passenger Vessel, Patrol & Pilot Vessel, Crew Boat, Naval Craft, etc. KSBL is the pioneer of building Tug Boats and Dredgers in Bangladesh. During the last 18 years, KSBL has repaired/renovated about 450 and built 62 new vessels of various types.
In 2009 KSBL formed a Joint Venture Consortium with VOSTA LMG BV, a world renowned Dutch-German Company in dredger technology. Under this Joint Venture three 450mm Cutter Suction Dredgers (CSD) were built in Bangladesh for the first time and delivered to BIWTA. Two more 650 mm CSDs have been delivered to BWDB recently. Construction of 13 more dredgers is going on at present for BIWTA and BWDB
