The newest subsidiary of Ifira Trustees Limited, Ifira General Services 2000, has taken delivery of a 30-ton Komatsu excavator and a 10,000-litre Caterpillar water truck, total value Vt12 million, to assist the company with its services. The heavy works units were purchased from a local company, Earthquip, based in Port Vila.
Dedication ceremony for the equipment was held at the main office of IGS 2000 located above Vila North School in Port Vila, conducted by the Moderator of the Presbyterian Session of Ifira, Pastor Jiva Taravaki, who was accompanied by his Session Clerk, Elder Matthew Ayong. Also in attendance was a team from the Public Works Department of Government.
Executive Director of IGS 2000 Massing Lauru expressed the happiness of everyone in the company and ITL for the progress made by the company which he said started only in 2000 but has been able to reach the level where it can make these purchases to increase its heavy works unit.
He expressed the gratitude of the company to the Government through the PWD for their assistance with hire of GS 2000’s tools in some of their projects.
The new additions to IGS 2000’s heavy works unit will be used also in the Lapetasi International Multipurpose Wharf Project at the former Star Wharf site next to the Port Vila main wharf, says Lauru.
