The slipway operations started in 2004 as a joint venture company with South Sea Engineering Limited.

In 2011, the slipway was bought by the Solander Group of Companies and they became 100 per cent shareholders.

SSSL is a specialist “small ship” slipway and engineering works.

The slipway can accommodate ships up to 400 tonnes and the length of the present cradle is 32.5 meters.

There are plans for extension this year.

“Our specialty is in the maintenance and handling of the Fijian and overseas fishing fleet using the Port of Suva,” Company managing director, Radhika Kumar said.

Countries that use this 24-hour facility include China, Taiwan, Kiribati, Wallis and Futuna, New Zealand and our Fijian vessels.  Ships that use the facility include fishing vessels, game fishing vessels, yachts and barges.
