Prospective placement of reefer container determined

On Friday, September 18, the MOL-dispatched team in Mauritius met with the Ministry of Blue Economy, Marine Resources, Fisheries and Shipping and Agricultural Marketing Board (AMB), and started considering the AMB site as the first choice as the location for the reefer container, which was donated by MOL and delivered on Friday, September 11.

This reefer container was transported from Singapore to Port Louis via an MOL car carrier. The donation reflects MOL's commitment to supporting the lives of those working in the local fishing industry by helping them develop a cold supply chain, based on a request the MOL team received from the Minister of Blue Economy, Marine Resources, Fisheries and Shipping.

The team will install and set up the reefer container for local people to use as soon as possible, while proceeding with various preparations to provide a power source, install emergency door release switches (panic buttons), and place dividers inside the container so it can be used by several fishermen's unions.
