Fiji receives clinker imports from Japan
23 January 2019

The Tasman Sea, a bulk carrier registered under a Hong Kong flag, docked at Lautoka Port to off-load clinker for the Tengy Cement Factory in Naikabula  and is expected to arrive in Suva next week for its factory in Veisari, Lami.

Fiji has been experiencing a shortage of cement and the delivery will help increase production. This is the second delivery that the Tasman Sea has made to Fiji.

Local shipping agency Transam Fiji Ltd operations manager, Madulesh Lakhan, said that the vessel Tasman Sea started offloading the as­signed 15,000t of clinker at the Lautoka port yesterday and will do so for the next four days. 

The vessel arrived on Sunday and will stay for five days to offload clinker, then it will depart for Suva to discharge 11,880t in Suva.

"We provide transportation to Pacific Ce­ment Ltd and Tengy Cement Ltd," added Mr Lakhan. "It has been only a year when we started shipping clinker to Fiji from Japan."
