ECNEC OKs Mongla Dredging Plan

The Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) today approved the ‘Dredging at Outer Bar of Mongla Port Channel’ project, the United News of Bangladesh (UNB) reports.

The Mongla Port Authority – under the Shipping Ministry – will implement this capital project by December 2019.

According to UNB, the main goal of this dredging scheme is to increase the navigability of the Mongla Port channel for handling vessels with 10.5 meter draft.

The Mongla Port Authority officials said that, at the moment, ships with more than 8.5 meter draft cannot go through the outer bar area of the port.

It is estimated that once the project is implemented, vessels with 10.5 meter draft will be able to transit the area.
