Karnafuly Shipyard Delivers Cutter Suction Dredgers to BIWTA

Karnafuly Ship Builders is the leading provider of quality construction, repair and conversion products and services to both the Government and and commercial marine industry. Karnafuly shipbuilder provides a wide variety of dry-docks and services for both shallow and deep water vessels.

On Jan 18th, 2012


Vostalmg-Karnafuly Joint Venture Consortium Ltd. delivered three high quality Cutter Suction Dredgers 450 to Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA). On Wednesday the 18th of January, 2012 the vessels were inaugurated by the Honorable Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina.

The vessels were built in close co-operation with the local Karnafuly Shipyard. VOSTA LMG has a cooperation with the shipyard since 2009. The CDS’s 450 are the first concrete product of that collaboration. The idea is to make Bangladesh a regional hub for construction of dredgers and dredging equipment.

The delivery of the three units will substantially increase the dredging capacity of the Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA), for dredging the inland waterways in Bangladesh.

Engineering, dredging components and systems were delivered by VOSTA LMG Europe. The building and commissioning of the dredgers was executed under the supervision of VOSTA LMG. The contract for the vessels was signed in November 2009.
