Tuvalu government vessel Manu Folau is undergoing maintenance and repair works at the Fiji Ships and Heavy Industries Limited (FSHIL) slipway.

Manu Folau, a passenger and general cargo vessel is undergoing fabrication and an additional two new sewerage tanks in­stalled.

Scope of work on the 16-year-old vessel in­cludes water blasting, painting of the entire hull and servicing of sea suction valves.

FSHIL continues to receive more vessels from the region as it continues to build on its reputation as the trusted name in the Pacific.

Repair work on the Vanuatu landing barge is still in progress according to the owner’s request. FSHIL Operations Manager Lopeti Radravu said they were proud not only to service vessels from the region but also fish­ing vessels from Asian countries.
