A GROUP of Australian investors is touring the Nadarivatu area this week to look into the possibility of investing in mini-hydro projects.

Roko Tui Colo Joji Banuve said yesterday discussions were continuing and the fact-finding mission would take a week.

"They are interested in funding a project which will see them partner with the landowners," said Mr Banuve.

"This has come at the right time when we are looking at avenues to help generate sustainable income from the resources we already have like water."

He said the project was appealing because it was environmentally-friendly.

He added it was highly likely a deal would be sealed with the Fiji Electricity Authority on the supply of power.
