Steamships’ subsidiary, Pacific Towing has completed its first major project in Fiji. Based at the main wharf in the capital, Suva, Pacific Towing’s newly established wreck retrieval business employs four Papua New Guinean divers and six Fijian locals. The team of divers, engineers, welders and a crane operator was commissioned to retrieve the container ship Southern Phoenix which capsized and sank in Suva Harbour on 6th May 2017. Pacific Towing commenced the multi-stage retrieval of the 88-metre-long vessel in November 2018 and completed the project in May. In addition to wreck retrieval, the company sees opportunities to introduce its towage, salvage, mooring and commercial diving services to the Fijian market. Pacific Towing is the only member of the Steamships Group with business interests in Fiji.
