Australian team arrives in T&T to inspect water taxis, patrol vessels

A team from Austal Shipyards has arrived in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) made the announcement in a statement on Monday.

This follows the recent concluded working visit to Australia by the Prime Minister and the concerns that the Government has with respect to the ten Austal vessels owned by the state.

The team will inspect the four water taxis and six Coast Guard patrol vessels, at the request of the Government, in order to produce a report on the state of the vessels.

The OPM said the report will also include suggestions towards getting all of the vessels operational and sea worthy as well as provide a proposed maintenance programme.

It said it is expected that the report will be provided to the Government in the coming weeks.
