Emerging Nation Shipyard Delivers Largest Ship Yet to German Owners
Ananda Shipyard & Slipways hands over multi-purpose 6,100 dwt vessel to Komrowski Maritim Gmbh.
Ananda Shipyard and Slipways Ltd have handed over Enzian, an oceangoing multi-purpose vessel, to German company Komrowski Maritim Gmbh. The 110.9-metre long and 16.5-metre in breadth ship is the largest ever locally built ship for export, say Ananda.
Bangladesh started exporting oceangoing ships in 2008, and Ananda was the first local company to export its first vessel to Europe, to a Danish company.
At present, Ananda, Western Marine, Highspeed Shipbuilding, Dhaka Dockyard and Engineering Works, Khan Brothers Shipbuilding and Karnaphuli Shipyard are the leading shipbuildersof ocean-going ships for international buyers.
These companies have received export orders of world-class seagoing vessels, both small and medium, worth $478 million with a deadline to deliver by 2013, according to Export Promotion Bureau data.
