FSC to test four mills

SUGARCANE crushing tests for all four mills will be concluded by the end of May, says FSC executive chairman Abdul Khan.

The FSC head said once tests were completed, crushing would begin a month later.

"The maintenance work will be done to ensure the mills are ready come the end of May," he said.

"We are looking at beginning crushing in mid-June but that will depend on crop maturity."

Mr Khan said firmer dates would be announced once cane tests are concluded.

"As we get closer to the scheduled dates, we will look at what the cane quality is like before making decisions on actual crush dates."

Meanwhile, major maintenance work at Rarawai Mill in Ba had begun. The replacement of an outdated and inefficient centrifugal would result in improved sugar extraction once completed.

The upgrade is being funded by a $US2.75million ($F4.34) loan.
