The MV Brianna will take rations for the 40 Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) engineers building the new Rotuma hospital at Ahau.

This was confirmed by RFMF Engineers Corps operations officer Major Sanaila Vitukalulu.

He said the barge that was supposed to transport the building materials for the hospital would leave on a later date.

“The barge is being used at the moment for Tropical Cyclone Keni rehabilitation work,” he said.

According to Major Vitukalulu, the construction of the new Rotuma hospital is on track and is scheduled to be completed by September 2018.

The total cost of the construction is around $8.3 million.

He said the engineers were also working on three community projects on the island – a bakery at Hapmak Village, a piggery at Lopta and laying blocks at Lau village.

Major Vitukalulu said the RFMF engineers team split into three groups on Saturdays to work on these projects.
