Central refinery of Ciego de Ávila Equatorial workers conducted empty and loaded tests to set up production machines and start grinding in the early days of December.
This factory will be the first to initiate the milling of the 2018-2019 campaign in the province of Avila, because traditionally this factory has been chosen for the so-called productivity, family consumption, organisms and production required for export, called "small harvest".
Milling plant manager Idalberto Ferrer Márquez said the targets were economic efficiency and food quality because they would allow refining as they increase the amount of crude oil.
According to experts from the Avilanian Sugar Company, there are conditions to remove the maximum amount of sucrose from the cane fields from a part of the municipalities of Baraguá, Venezuela and Primero de Enero, where the industrial operation phase will be about 125 days.
Ferrer pointed out that it intensifies the energy production, the modernization of boilers, turbo-generators and other equipment forming the gear wheels of the factory.
After. Ecuador lar, Ciro Redondo, Primero de Enero and Enrique Varona González will be included in the harvest date, since combined harvesters and trucks have been ready since June for harvesting grass on harvest dates.
Eduardo Larroza Vázquez, managing director of the European sugar company, said there are no significant investments in the current season, but that raw materials are entering important sources on the cutting and transferring vehicles.
Emphasizing the efforts of the industry's 500 innovative and rationalizers, it is decisive for useful and technical solutions to benefit from everything that can be useful every year.
Last year, Ecuadorian central refinery workers produced more than 43,000 tonnes of white sugar, for which it was necessary to grind 56 thousand 400 tonnes which they expected to overcome in the future harvest. (ACN).
