The Govt. of India issued to this sugar factory, Industrial License No.
L/25/N-243/70-LC dated 6th August 1970, to erect a plant of 1250 TCD (extendable up to
2000 TCD) for the manufacture of cane sugar. The plant was erected and was commissioned in
the year 1974.
Due to irrigation
facilities and activities led o considerably enhance the area under sugarcane cultivation
in our area of operation. At the 1st crushing season i.e. 1974-75
sugarcane cultivation in our area of operation was 4534.26 hectors whereas it has increased about
18500 hectors as at present.
This situation of surplus
sugarcane complelled us to undertake immediate expansion of initial project of 1250 TCD.
Hence application for permission of first expansion from 1250 TCD to 2200 TCD was
submitted to Govt. of India on 6th September 1976. This first expansion was completed and
project started with expanded capacity of 2200 TCD in 1982. The machinery achieved good
results. Still we faced the problem of excess sugarcane and disposal. Hence we had to
undertake further expansion from 2200 TCD to 5000 TCD and complete the same. The plant
with expansion capacity of 5000 TCD is functioning well from 1994-1995 crushing season.
While finalizing the
plant and machinery for 2200 to 5000 TCD expansion the Management of the factory took
maximum care because of which the efforts were made to add modern Technology i.e. Walker's
Mill, Continuous Pan, Bin Systems Etc; and; scope for the further expansion of the plant.
After the completion of
5000 TCD expansion after 1995 onwards we required to crush for every season more than
10.50 lakhs tones of cane. We even required continuing up to June. This adversely affect
the recovery of cane. In order to crush available cane within the area of operation in
time (before 30th April) and in order to get the benefit of sugar recovery; The management
decided to expand sugar plant from 5000 TCD to 7500 TCD.
As started earlier, there
was a additional scope of cane crushing in milling, power and boiler section, hence during
the expansion from 5000 TCD to 7500 TCD, additions and alterations in the plant and
machinery were completed during last off season in Boiling House.
The expanded Plant for
7500 TCD were commissioned on the 15th November, 2000. The plant is running very smoothly.
