Reeves International is proud to work with Icon in building the AUD 83 million Maritime Essential Services Centre (MESC) in Lami, Fiji, a major infrastructure project to enhance Fiji’s maritime capabilities. The MESC will house the Republic of Fiji Navy Headquarters, Suva Radio Coastal Station, Fiji Maritime Surveillance Coordination Centre, and Fiji Hydrographic Office.
“The Maritime Essential Services Centre will enhance Fiji’s security and prosperity," said Prime Minister Anthony Albanese. "Australia is helping to build a stronger Pacific family, and I am proud to partner with Fiji in the next steps of our Vuvale Partnership," he added.
According to Prime Minister Bainimarama, “the creation of the Maritime Centre is estimated to be completed in 2024 and will inject around 56.2 Million Dollars into the Fijian economy, creating more than 445 jobs across the nation."
It will also boost Fiji’s leadership in responding to natural disasters, protect local fishing industries, and increase naval and coastal rescue capabilities.
