Maritime Essential Services Centre Takes Shape

Maritime Essential Services Centre Takes Shape

Work on the Maritime Essential Services Centre (MESC) located in Lami, Fiji for the Republic of Fiji Military Forces is taking shape with earthworks and foundation structure being erected.

Australia and Fiji have partnered to construct the new (MESC). The MESC will be home to the Republic of Fiji Navy Headquarters, the Rescue Coordination Centre, Suva Radio Coastal Radio Station and Fiji Hydrographic Office.

The MESC will serve as a multipurpose building designed to enhance Fiji’s maritime capabilities. It will provide added protection for local fishing industries; enhance natural disaster assistance and rescue capabilities; and enhance Suva Radio service.

The project is managed by 19th Chief Engineer Works and delivered by AusBiz Icon and Reeves Envico along with local Fijian sub-contractors and Australian suppliers.

Construction of the MESC is due to be complete in 2024 and will maximise the involvement of Fijian industry. This local approach also ensures delivery of a tailored solution based on local knowledge and skills, and aims to maximise the benefit to the local economy and generate jobs.
