History of BN Dockyard
2. It is to be mentioned that this particular part of the world has a century old glorious history of shipbuilding. Right here in Chittagong, this Dockyard built a wooden hull frigate for the German Navy in 1818. Unfortunately, in the industrial age, Dockyard was out of the race and the trend continued during the colonial rules. Before the independence in 1971 there was hardly any ship repair facility except a small base workshop in this part of the country.
