BMT completed its landmark consultation work for the Vital Group in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), in a great example of cooperation between Australia and Pacific Nations. The vessel will assist Vital with the Coconut for Life project, which involves the revitalization of the FSM’s coconut industry for the benefit of the Micronesian people.
BMT Defence and Security Australia, Managing Director, Peter Behrendt said.
“This project is a great example of Australia doing its bit in promoting economic development in the Pacific,”
“The Pacific is an important region for BMT, and for Australia in general. We hope to have many years of cooperation between our company and the Federated States of Micronesia,” he said.
“BMT has been involved in many aspects of planning for how this landing craft vessel will be used, including in the supply chain, workforce development and infrastructure upgrade requirements,” Mr. Behrendt said.
“I look forward to seeing how the landing craft vessel and the Coconut for Life Project contribute towards the local economy and the livelihoods of Micronesians,” Mr. Behrendt said.
Jared Morris, CEO of the Vital Group, thanked BMT for their contribution to the project. “BMT has been a great partner for the Coconut for Life initiative, having provided extensive maritime technical expertise since 2017.”
