Bangladesh buys 10 ‘cutter-suction’ dredgers


Dredging technology provider Vosta LMG, and Karnafuly Shipyard have jointly delivered a total of 10 cutter-suction dredgers (CSD) for the Bangladesh Inland Transport Water Authority (BITWA) and the Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB).

The order includes six CSD 450’s for the BITWA and four CSD 500’s for the BWDB.

Vosta LMG and Karnafuly have now delivered a total of 15 cutter-suction dredgers to Bangladesh, with the dredgers used to keep the Bangladesh waterway system navigable.

The dredgers were built at the Karnafuly Chittagong Shipyard where they were commissioned by a joint specialist team, including employees from both Karnafuly and Vosta.  

Vosta LMG has been responsible for providing engineering services, dredging equipment and supervision during the construction of the cutter-suction dredgers.

Vosta LMG’s expertise – acquired over more than a century – and the workmanship of the Karnafuly Shipyard have made it possible to construct the dredgers onsite.
