New $75k generator

RICE processing in the North may have to wait another week as the Rewa Rice Mill purchases a new generator from Viti Levu this week.

Rewa Rice Mill manager Ashrit Pratap said the new generator cost about $75,000 and would be brought from Suva to Vanua Levu next week.

"The former generator has been old and obsolete therefore, the need for the replacement," he said.

"We cannot confirm a day next week when the mill is expected to begin normal operations.

"However, we can only confirm with farmers that the mill will be up and running from next week."

Mr Pratap said they had arranged for the transportation of the new generator from Viti Levu and hoped it would be dispatched as soon as possible.

"We are appealing to farmers to bear with us as we cannot do much with the recent situation."

Farmers continue to worry about their stock of harvested rice paddy stored in their homes after the mill broke down in December last year.
