The discharge of 24,000 tonnes of clinker to lorries on a barge and to Tengy Cement (Fiji) Company Limited (TCFL) is on time.

Spokesman of Carpenters Shipping Fiji Limited the agents of cargo vessel Festival Tomu Raturaga, said the discharge would take time as it was done out at Lami Harbour.

However he said they have to meet the 30-day visa time line.

“The visa for all the crews have been extended to 30 days and the discharge is on time,” he said.

“What’s happening now after the Court Order is that lorries are loaded to a barge and they are taken to the vessel out in Lami Harbour for the clinker to  be discharged and brought to shore and then to the cement factory.”

Meanwhile, Mr Raturaga said they are also agents of the cruise liner Explorer of the Seas, that berthed at Suva Port on Monday with 3000 tourists on board.

Wikipedia says that the Explorer of the Seas is a Voyager-class cruise ship owned and operated by Royal Caribbean International, completed in 2000. She can accommodate over 3,000 guests, including scientists making use of a built-in atmospheric and oceanographic laboratory operated by the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. (The manned lab with its attendant educational and outreach programs for passengers was discontinued in 2007. An automated system for gathering data was installed in 2008.[6]) At launch, Explorer of the Seas had a tonnage of 137,308 GT, beating out her sister ship Voyager of the Seas by 32 GT and making her the world’s largest passenger ship.
