Isis Town and Country - - News -

CRUSH­ING oper­a­tions at Isis Cen­tral Sugar Mill are track­ing al­most ex­actly as pre­dicted in the pre-sea­son.

Mill CEO John Gor­ringe said they had pro­jected that through­put for the first 26 days of the 2015 crush­ing sea­son would be 207,000 tonnes and by last Fri­day the fac­tory has pro­cessed 207,363.03 tonnes.

Mr Gor­ringe said there had been some de­lays in the first few weeks of op­er­a­tion due to wet weather but good progress has been made since and to date about 15% of the avail­able crop es­ti­mated for har­vest­ing has been pro­cessed.

The mill is ex­pected to crush about 1.3mil­lion tonnes this sea­son with har­vest­ing tipped to be com­pleted by mid Novem­ber.

Mr Gor­ringe said the mill has now pro­duced ap­prox­i­mately 25,000 tonnes of raw sugar that has been de­liv­ered to the Bulk Sugar Ter­mi­nal at the Bund­aberg Port await­ing ship­ment.

The early sea­son va­ri­ety KQ228 con­tin­ues to make up the bulk of the crop with 26,215 tonnes supplied dur­ing the past week, KQ228 av­er­aged 12.95 units of CCS for the week.

The high­est CCS for the week was 15.26 units of KQ228 which was supplied by a grower in the Ma­roon­dan area.
