RARAWAI Sugar mill in Ba is one step closer to realising its potential as a supplier of power to the national grid.
Fiji Sugar Corporation's (FSC) executive chairman Abdul Khan revealed a draft report on the project had been received while details were also being finalised for the Labasa mill project.
"For Rarawai, we have received the draft Bankable Detail Project Report," Mr Khan said.
"We will have our comments back to the consulting engineers soon with the view of the final report being available by June 18.
"For the enhancement of the Labasa cogeneration, the engineers are finalising all the technical details with the preferred suppliers and this should be completed by June 15," he said.
Mr Khan had earlier stated in interviews with this newspaper the FSC was going to investigate the viability of a number of projects with the view of fully utilising harvested cane.
This, he said included the setting up of cogeneration plants, a sugar refinery and packaging plant and an ethanol production factory.
He had said FSC needed to diversify its business to maximise on revenue opportunities while not compromising on its core business — the production of sugar.
