Staff Correspondent, Chittagong: Bangladesh Shipping Corporation (BSC) is going to add six vessels to its crippled fleet soon.
The first vessel MV Banglar Joyjatra, a bulk carrier, is scheduled to be delivered to the BSC in July of 2018.
The rest five will be added from October in the current calendar year to February next.
The BSC has only two over-aged crude- oil lightering vessels now.
All the vessels are being procured under a foreign loan funded development plan financed by the Chinese government and they are being constructed in a Chinese ship building yard.
Managing Director of Bangladesh Shipping Corporation (BSC) Commodore Yahya Syed said this.
