The Captain (Cpt) of the MV Sea Rakino, Pauliasi Koroitalemaiyale is taking turns in the operation  of the MV Tug Burdekin & Barge Colossus during the operation of transporting clinker in the trucks loaded in the Barge and pulling it to the Graham South-wick  Wharf  at Kalekana  for disembarking of trucks and unloading the clinker at the Cement Factory dump yard.

This was confirmed from a release given to the Fiji Sun by Victoria Marine Limited.

The release said this was a very important operation and it was a 24/7 which they had to execute to their very best skills within the time frame allocated.

About 26,850 metric tons of clinker arrived on board the Tasman Sea and the unloading was at anchorage at Lami Bay.

The Sea Rakino had just returned from its trip to the Yasawa Group.

Victoria Marine Limited manager shipping Mr Pita Cokomata had earlier said that the trip to the Yasawa Group was uneconomical.

“We see that this route is an uneconomical one and from our observation that this will not improve in the near future,” he said.

There franchise trip to Yasawa he said would end this month

He said that they hoped that before the end of their contract the government would take necessary actions in developing infrastructure in the area.

“We believe that this input by government will inspire business developments on the Islands of Yasawa.”
