ENGINEERS from India who are here to improve milling techniques and increase mill efficiency at sugar mills will also train local staff, said FSC executive chairman Abdul Khan.

"A number of other engineers will be here shortly to assist. Our objective is for these engineers and other specialised people to not only help with the operations but to train our people as well."

This follows reviews conducted by a three-member team of experts from India last year. The consultants were tasked with surveying issues peculiar to the sugar mills.

For Labasa, the focus was the process end of crushing where juice is crystalised into sugar, while for Penang in Rakiraki, the Indian team looked at boiler and water issues.

At the Rarawai mill in Ba, the consultants were pointed to the cane feeding process and issues pertaining to the boiler.

In Lautoka, the team surveyed sugar milling and drying processes.
