Chittagong Dry Dock Limited (Formerly an enterprise of Bangladesh steel & Engineering Corporation, currently operating under Bangladesh Navy) was created as a complementary facility to Chittagong Port Authority to cater the regular and emergency repair needs of the National flag Vessels as well as the vessels that touches the Chittagong Port Authority. It serves the double purpose of saving our valuable foreign currency by extending Dry Docking Repair and Maintenance services to our national flag carrier vessels and also earning from foreign flag carrier vessels. The design and construction of the project was done with Yugoslav Technical Assistance. From the date of feasibility study (done in 1963) up to the inaugural start-up of operation (in May 1981) it took long 18 (eighteen) years to complete the construction and implementation of the project. The commercial operation of the project started in 1985-1986 fiscal year (i.e. July 1985).

Presently CDDL plan to extending its facilities by introducing second dry dock along with developing infrastructure, machinery, equipment and other facilities aim to new building (class ship of both Naval and Merchant).
