|Narrative description of Project:|
The OFCT project study is the first study that took place in Bangladesh. The main focus of the study was to use the inland river route for different types of transportation, especially cargo and other water vehicles. That’s why J-DeEP assigned NVSL to do that study. The focus of the study was to investigate the logistics network using the J-DeEP proposed Offshore Floating Container Terminal (OFCT) Structure from the Bay of Bengal to the final destination. Initially, the tasks were divided into four sections: i) market demand analysis and forecasts up to 2040, (ii) legitimate condition analysis, (iii) probable location selection of three different sites considering different kinds of meteorological, hydrological, and other ocean factors. The following tasks were completed under the whole study by NVSL staff.
1. Project planning and survey design;
2. Data and information collection;
3. Data analysis and report writing;
4. A detailed site selection report;
|Description of technical specialization provided by the firm:|
