A new barge is expected to arrive in Niue in the very near future says Advisor to Premier, Wayne Harris Dawes.
Brand new and made in Fiji, the barge has a carrying capacity of 56 tonnes with a dry weight of 22 tonnes. Self draining and self propelled it is expected to benefit Niue with reducing fuel costs and time spent off loading containers.
Dawes anticipates the barge to sail to Niue following completion stages in August.
As part of the NZ aid overall for the port upgrade which included the procurement of the 95-tonne crane, the barge has an estimated value of $800,000(US$528,000) fit for oceanic voyaging.
