FEA power grid boost

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, June 07, 2014

THE new 10-megawatt generator at the Labasa FSC Mill is expected to boost electricity supply on the FEA grid this year.

Apart from selling molasses and sugar, the mill will also sell electricity to FEA.

In his presentation to the members of the Macuata Provincial Council meeting on Thursday afternoon, the mill's cane logistic manager, Navitalai Masivuya, said they were in recovery mode after the mill went through a lot of positive changes.

He said the company earned about $1million from selling electricity to the national grid every year, adding the generator would further boost this venture.

The initiative, he said, was aimed at diversifying the earnings within the mill.
