FISH4ACP Call for applications: provision of a tuna loading machine

The following is an excerpt of an original article found in https://www.fao.org/in-action/fish-4-acp/where-we-work/pacific/call-for-applications

 

FISH4ACP is opening a call for applications for the provision of a tuna loading machine in support of its operations to upgrade the purse seine tuna value chain in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

The tuna loading machine is expected to improve the efficiency in the filling of containers, reduce costs and improve the quality of fish sold to canneries.

The procurement is part of FISH4ACP's work in the Marshall Islands, meant to kick-start local economic development, increase the level of containerization and tuna exports.

The provision of the tuna loading machine will be delivered via FAO's Beneficiary Grant Agreement wherein an in-kind award from FAO to a competitively selected beneficiary will be made. The equipment will be first procured by FAO, using its own policies and rules, before transfer is made to the selected beneficiary.

The call for applications will open on February 15, 2024, and will close on March 03, 2024, at 23:59 hours CET.
