Ocean Logistics Limited has recently purchased three tug boats and three barges from a company called Q-Ports Marine on the Brisbane River.  The MT Spring Cove has been renamed the MV Melissa.  She spent 12 months out of the water and has been going through an extensive maintenance period brining her back into an operational status.  MV Melissa has a long history working on the Brisbane river and up and down the East coast of Australia.  She will now continue her service in Vanuatu and throughout the South Pacific region.
