Calalin Channel Markers 5 and 6 Replacement
The main channel to Majuro lagoon, Calalin Channel, has six major channel markers guiding vessels safely into the protected waters of the Majuro Lagoon. The innermost channel markers, 5 and 6, were destroyed in 2000 and 2001 and were not operational. The lack of these two channel markers resulted in unmarked hazardous shallow areas and no proper guiding for incoming and outgoing vessels through the safer deeper waters of the channel. In 2012, replacement channel markers 5 and 6 were fully constructed resulting in safer vessel passage through the Calalin Channel. In addition, channel markers 1 through 4 were also repaired with new platforms dayboards and beacons.
The Channel Markers project reflects the importance of our maintenance operations and our renewed commitment to maritime safety and development.
