Detail Narrative Description of Project:


GOB with the financial assistance from the IDA, UNDP and ODA has implemented TFP (Shrimp Component) in the South-western part of Bangladesh. The objective of the project was to develop shrimp culture in about 10,454 ha of land inside the existing CEP polders in the districts of Khulna and Satkhira. Previously these areas were under shrimp culture by adopting the traditional methods. In the post project condition, improved traditional methods are being followed which has increased the average annual shrimp yield from about 85 kg/ha to about 250 kg/ha. The work involved was planning, designing and top supervision of all infrastructures which include drainage sluices, foot bridges, culverts, embankments etc.


Detail Description of Actual Services Provided by our company:


Collection and analysis of all available field data, topo and hydrological survey, hydrological studies, design of about 200 flushing/drainage sluices, 36 RCC foot bridges, 48 ferrocement farmers sluices and reconstruction/rehabilitation works of old CEP sluices and embankments, preparation of drawings, estimates and tender documents, top supervision of construction works of polders 5, 23, 31 & 32 including preparation of O&M Manual with action plan for cost recovery. An innovative technology, ferrocement sheet pile, has been used successfully in this project.
