Facilities at Arisha Economic Zone
Utilities- Gas & Electricity
There will be uninterrupted power supply. Entrepreneurs can take the power connection from Arisha Economic Zone authority by paying a minimum charge at a time and monthly bill to be paid as per consumption.
Instant gas connection will be supplied to the factories by the EZ authority. Users shall have to pay a onetime connection charge and monthly bill as per consumption to the Gas Co.
Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP)
ETP is necessary for regulatory compliance. Most industrial areas tend to have a central ETP facility designated exclusively for the use of the industries established within its boundaries. It is as much a regulatory requirement as a necessity to keep the image of the business uncharged. Businesses are prepared to cut into their profit margin and forgo short term gains for the long term effect of the image of the business. WTP on the other hand is necessary for industrial use of water. Industries these days use large quantities of water for a range of activities. Purified source of such water is necessary to enable businesses to run effectively.
Inland Container Depot (ICD)
Inland Container Depots, otherwise known as ICDs, are dry ports equipped for handling and temporary storage of containerized cargo as well as empties. This means that hinterland customers can receive port services more conveniently closer to their premises. ICDs are a convenient shipping alternative extending port services closer to hinterland customers.
The project is strategically placed at the bank of Buriganga River, allowing for the use of river route to transport goods all over the country and eventually, the whole world. The EZ is only 34KM away from Panga River Port.
Despite being situated on the outskirts of one of the most densely populated city, the Aarisha EZ is uniquely positioned to be able to transport raw materials and finished goods avoiding heavy traffic by using river routes.
Deep Tube Well will be sunk for instant water supply for the entrepreneurs. For getting the connection, entrepreneurs shall have to pay a minimum charge fixed by private EPZ authority. Users shall have to pay as per bill fixed by private EPZ Co.
Since Bangladesh is crisscrossed by rivers, river ports and river ways have been playing a significant role to the transportation of goods here and there. Almost all big cities and commercial centers of Bangladesh have been established by the river-ports.
An inland port is a port on a navigable lake, river (fluvial port), or canal with access to a sea or ocean, which therefore allows a ship to sail from the ocean inland to the port to load or unload its cargo. An example of this is the St. Lawrence Seaway which allows ships to travel from the Atlantic Ocean several hundred kilometers inland to the Great Lakes.
Safety & Security
A dedicated team of security personnel shall provide full range safety and security for the overall area. However, Individual clients will deploy their own security for their own leased units or appoint the EZ authority. Provision of highly trained and smartly uniformed Guards would be available.
EZ’s clients can use the Five Star category accommodation service for them to entertain the buyers, suppliers and top level managers, which will ensure seamless communication with the factory and the stakeholders.
