The bulk carrier Tasman Sea arrived into the country on Sunday, June18 with26, 850 metric tons of clinker.

This was confirmed to the Fiji Sun by Pacific Cement Limited spokesman Sowani Tuidrola.

He said the bulk carrier was discharging clinker at anchorage at Lami Bay.

Mr Tuidrola said the Tasman Sea would berth at Suva Port to finish off the unloading when the Maipo River finished its clinker unloading.

Meanwhile Mr Tuidrola confirmed that they were now in full operation due after their breakdown.

He said the engineers came from New Zealand and had left the country and they were back full operation.

Mr Tuidrola had apologised for an inconvenience caused during the breakdown.

Pacific Cement supplies about 80% of the market in Fiji and it operates the only integrated plant in the territory. The other local supplier in the market is Tengy Cement.

During the breakdown Pacific Cement has also agreed to sell 24,000t of surplus clinker to Tengy Cement following government intervention.
