In 2011 Prime Blasting Fiji was established to accommodate the rapid growth in the region, since then Prime Blasting Services Ltd has been exporting explosives to Fiji. Prime Blasting Fiji is now well established on the main Island of Viti Levu and operates a successful facility from our licensed magazines located just north of Nadi. Prime Blasting Fiji holds all of the necessary licenses required by the Fijian Mineral Resources Department to store and sell explosives from this facility.
Since our first dealings with Fiji we have continued to build strong relationships with many local Fijian companies and can offer an extensive range of accessories and explosives supply. We have worked closely with local Drilling companies and can also offer a full Drill and Blast service in Fiji. These longstanding relationships with local companies are an invaluable part of trading within Fiji.
Prime Blasting Fiji Ltd has been successful with another Drill and Blast contract recently which is based on the largest island of Vanua Levu. This new site has been established and the drill and blast operations are well underway. This new site opens up new opportunities for us and the people of Vanua Levu. We are proud to be a part of it. As well as this we have recently signed a contract to drill and blast 300,000 BCM to supply roading material for the Fijian Government. The contract involves supplying sub base and base material for a new road between Labasa and Savu Savu on the Island of Vanua Levu.
Prime Explosives Ltd has had recent success throughout the Pacific Islands. In February 2018 we secured a contract in Samoa with the Samoan Aviation Project to Drill and Blast 80,000 BCM to supply materials for Faleolo Airport runway. Work commenced in March 2018.
Prime Explosives also secured with the Government of Niue, to Drill and Blast 40,000 BCM. This project is partially completed, and the relationship continues to grow.
Late 2018 Prime explosives, supplied explosives and completed Blasting in Tonga, this was for Armour Rock for a large amount of break water.
All of these contracts prove that Prime Explosives Ltd now has a strong presence throughout the Pacific Islands which we continue to grow.
