Nauru port

Captaine Quiros on its final voyage to Nauru

The cargo vessel will go through Covid-19 testing and if cleared will berth on Thursday to discharge 85 containers.

According to Nauru Media News – NTV, the vessel will no longer visit Nauru as the shipping company’s contract with Nauru Port is expiring.

Meanwhile a landing craft will arrive today (Thursday) January bringing tanks for the Department of Commerce Industry and Environment (CIE).

The landing craft will off-load the tanks at the Aiwo causeway.

Nauru Shipping Line’s (NSL) vessel Micronesian Pride will arrive on its maiden voyage tomorrow.

Nauru port gets funding approval

 At its 18th board meeting in the Egyptian capital Cairo, the GCF, an international funding organization, approved the AUD$35m (US$26.9m) port project to help Nauru counter the effects of climate change.

 The project will see the Nauru Government partner with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to give the port a much-needed upgrade.

 “We are extremely grateful for the tireless efforts of the ADB and for support from the GCF board to get this port proposal approved,” said Minister for Finance David Adeang.
