Radiant Shipyard achieved a significant milestone by successfully launching its first-ever coastal oil tankers. The vessels, constructed in a remarkable lead time of 14 months at the shipyard’s Narayanganj site, mark a testament to the company’s dedication to excellence.
Commissioned by Cargo Maritime, these two tankers boast a capacity of 1750 cubic metres each and feature the latest amenities, ensuring optimal functionality and efficiency. Notably, the vessels were ingeniously moved from the building site to the water using the innovative ‘air-bag’ method. This eco-friendly approach highlights Radiant Shipyard’s commitment to modern and sustainable shipbuilding techniques.
Since its establishment in 2012, Radiant Shipyard has been focused on meeting the demands of local clients who typically sought shipbuilding services abroad. The shipyard’s efforts have yielded remarkable results, evident in its diverse portfolio. Notably, Radiant Shipyard has contributed to the tourism sector by constructing a state-of-the-art cruise liner for the Sundarbans and is currently working on two oil tankers of similar size.
Radiant Shipyard’s achievements extend to groundbreaking projects. In collaboration with Omera Petroleum Limited, a subsidiary of Mobil Jamuna Lubricants Bangladesh, the shipyard is constructing a 300 metric tonne liquefied petroleum gas carrier. Set for delivery in September, this vessel represents the first LPG carrier built entirely in Bangladesh.
Further expanding its prowess, Radiant Shipyard has recently secured contracts with Atlas Shipping and MST Marine Services to build two container vessels for inland transportation, showcasing the shipyard’s versatility and commitment to advancing Bangladesh’s shipbuilding industry.
