The Fiji Port Cooperation Limited (FPCL) has given

Sunshine Fisheries Limited one month to remove their sunken vessel Rising 26 away from Suva Harbour.

FPCL chief executive officer, Mr Vajira Piyasena said if they failed they would be banned from using port facility.

Sunshine Fisheries Limited general manager Winston Sun told the Fiji Sun that they had paid a deposit of $35,000 to Pacific Marine and Civil Solution (PMCS) for the removal of their vessel.

“We signed agreement with PMCS for the removal of our vessel,” he said.

However he said now PMCS had an issue with one of their barges which had resulted in the hold up.

Mr Sun said they had been liaising with PMCS on their schedule on the removal of their vessel.

He said if PMCS could not provide them with the schedule, they would look for another company to carry out the work.

Mr Sun said they were now liaising with other companies for the removal of their vessel but it was very hard.

If PMCS could not remove the vessel, he said they should reimburse their money.

“We have paid the deposit three weeks ago,” he said.

Mr Piyasena said they had advised the vessel owner to look for another alternative company to clear the vessel.

The vessel Rising 26 was partially sunk in the anchorage at sea in front of civic center in Suva last month.
