Princess Civa back in the wa­ter

Fiji Sun - - LOCAL - LUSIANA TUIMAISALA Feed­back: MV Princess Civa lusiana.tuimaisala@fi­jisun.

The MV Princess Civa will be de-slipped to­day, ready for a new chap­ter. The Toke­lau Ship­ping Com­pany owned in­ter-is­land ves­sel has been out of the Fiji wa­ters the last 12 months.

Com­pany spokesper­son Moku­ni­tuolevu said the

Isireli ves­sel was up at the Fiji Ships and Heavy In­dus­tries Lim­ited (FSHIL) slip­way for one year. Mr Moku­ni­tuolevu said it was a re­lief that their ves­sel was fi­nally done up with the com­ple­tion of re­pair and main­te­nance works. “Our busi­ness was af­fected when Princess Civa was up on the slip­way,” Mr Moku­ni­tuolevu said.

He did not dis­close the to­tal cost of re­pair works.

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Moku­ni­tuolevu they would await clear­ance from the Mar­itime Safety Au­thor­ity of Fiji (MSAF) be­fore they could re­sume op­er­a­tion.

MV Princess Civa does fran­chise runs in the Eastern divi­sion in­clud­ing the Lau Group.
