TaraTari is constantly developing solutions regarding problems due to water rise in north Bangladeshi rivers, as well as safety issues regarding sea going vessels sailing through storms or cyclones in the Bengal gulf area. Previous researches led to conception and production of safe marine crafts like following:
- Two floating hospitals
- River ambulances
- Unsinkable fishing boat the ‘Masdoris’ and its passenger carrier version the ‘Mandoris’
- Each new Research and Development is undertaken by trying to optimize performance, stability and safety with regards to needs and future use.
Under progress or planned researches:
After every storm or cyclone, the major part of the fleet is destroyed and boats are needed rapidly for first aid (relief supplies, medical staff…) but also to prevent from weakening the local economy. The aim is to design boats that could be piled up and to build them in large quantity before disasters for them to be available as soon as possible when needed.
During floods, one of the main needs of the population is clean water to maintain hygiene and prevent diseases. A boat could be equipped with filters to provide safe water to people.
The objective is to develop small and easy to build “hydraulic energy plants” driven by the current of main rivers.
The idea is to think about a concept of dredging technology and of monitoring accretion in the main rivers to address the problem of erosion in the Chars for instance (isolated and shifting islands on Brahmaputra that make people living on move regularly their home and facilities).
With its partner Watever NGO TaraTari shipyard is jointly developing research on floating solutions and construction material in shipbuilding.
TaraTari is supporting Gold Of Bengal project, researching for the integration of jute fiber in boat building.
This research is also supported by the NGO Watever.
