Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 21/05/2019

His Majesty King Tupou VI will commission the tugboat MV Olovaha of the Ports Authority at the Taufa’ahau Tupou IV Wharf tomorrow morning.

The MV Olovaha was bought from Australia at a cost of 2.7 million pa’anga to assist the current tugboat MV Hifofua with towing of ships to the harbor as the MV Hifofua has been operating for more than 20 years.

CEO of Ports Authority Mosese Lavemai says with more cruise ships visiting Tonga, some requested to have at least two tugboats to ensure safer towing of larger boats to the harbor.
