Press Release

Tender for New Vessel Released

Tokelau’s long awaited new vessel has been released for tender.

The new shipping vessel is part of the Total Transport Solution Project under the Tokelau National Strategic Plan development goals. The tender looks to a two year time frame to complete the project.

Applications for tender will be closed on the 7th of April.

A marine engineering company was appointed by New Zealand Government to design a concept based on the information preferences gathered from a workshop held last December with representatives from the villages.

The vessel will be 40-50 metres long; have seating capacity for 60 people, with speed limited to only 12 knots.

The Total Transport Solution includes inter island transport between the islands and development of a safe ship to shore solution.

Sea-Tow Pacific Basin Matua is currently operating as the transportation for Tokelau to and from Apia route.


The tender can be viewed on the New Zealand Government Electronic Tender System (GETS)
