Additional Base For Fijian Navy

The Fijian Navy will now have an additional base just below the Suva Lighthouse (Valencina) in Lami.

This was confirmed by the Commander Navy Captain (Navy) Humphrey Tawake.

“This will be an additional base, not the new one,” he said.

At the additional base, he said they would have their Hydrographic Department now based at Togalevu, the Suva Radio 3DP now based at Togalevu and another Fiji Maritime Surveillance Rescue Co-ordination Centre (FMSRCC) based at the Fiji Navy Headquarters at Walu Bay, Suva.

The three departments he said were crucial for the Fijian Navy.

For the FMSRCC, he said, they would still have the one at the headquarters in Walu Bay and in case of a tsunami, they would still have the one at Valenicina.

When asked about the new naval base, he said they were still searching.
