In order to minimise opera­tional disruptions, Fiji Ports Corporation Limited (FPCL) has deferred the maintenance project that was scheduled to have been carried out at the south end of Suva’s Port Mua-i-Walu 2 from last week.

The reason for the delay is to fa­cilitate arrangements accordingly with vessel operators who would be affected by the project.

The work will convene once neces­sary arrangements are made.

As already communicated indi­vidually and discussed during the stakeholders’ meeting, the deck overlay maintenance project case disruptions and will result in lim­ited berthing capacity at the wharf.

However, there are other alter­native berthing arrangements al­ready in place.

Vessel operators/owners have been reminded on timely submis­sion of berthing applications and weekly schedules for proper prior planning to be carried out for vessel berthing arrangements.

Alternative facilities to accom­modate berthing include the Government Shipping Services (GSS) facility, old shipyard and also Princess Wharf.

The maintenance project will be in two phases covering 42 meters from the south end of the wharf.

Vessel operators/owners are ad­vised to work closely with FPCL during this maintenance period to see how best the limited berthing capacity can be utilised during this maintenance period.

As Port Landlord, FPCL ensures that its stakeholders are consulted well before any operation is carried out or procedure implemented.
