The Royal Fiji Navy Services welcomed its biggest and newest vessel in Walu Bay, Suva today.

Minister for Defense and National Security Inia Seruiratu says RFNS Kacau will provide security and prosperity as Fiji fights to protect our seas.

Seruiratu says the vessel will be used as a hydrographic and surveillance vessel.

“Kacau will boost Fiji Navy’s stability to conduct hydrographic surveillance which means it will provide the best, most reliable data for nautical chance making our oceans more predictable and easy to navigate.”

Named after a rare and distinctive sea bird the RFNS Kacau has been donated by the Chinese Government.

The vessel has 32 crew members who will help keep Fiji waters safe from unwanted activity.
