Cane crush sea­son records great har­vest

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE 2016 crush­ing cam­paign at Isis Mill was com­pleted in the early hours of Sun­day, Novem­ber 27.

The sea­son will be recorded in the 120 year old grower owned Sugar Mill’s his­tory as the third high­est sea­sonal through­put of cane.

Har­vest­ing of the last of the cane crop was com­pleted just ahead of wide­spread storms that rolled across the re­gion dur­ing Satur­day af­ter­noon.

These storms de­liv­ered rain­fall with record­ing around 100mm.

The team at Isis Mill worked dili­gently and safely to de­liver this ex­cel­lent re­sult. The work­force has re­mained lost time in­jury free for more than three years and plan to cel­e­brate this mile­stone along with the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the sea­son in the com­ing weeks. When the Mill ground to a halt at 10 min­utes to 1am on Sun­day morn­ing, 1,352,415.32 tonnes of cane had been pro­cessed at the Childers based sugar mill. To date CCS reached 14.09 units. Week 22 through­put was 71,654.48 tonnes of cane pro­cessed for a weekly av­er­age 15.09 units of CCS. As a re­sult, the fac­tory pro­cessed a record weekly sugar out­put to the Bund­aberg Port with 11,050 tonnes of IPS sugar de­liv­ered, the high­est sugar out­put in the 120 year his­tory of the com­pany.

With the rain­fall of the last few days pro­vid­ing a strong start.

Wa­ter stor­ages are near full ca­pac­ity and sugar price re­mains strong.

We take this op­por­tu­nity to thanks all stake­hold­ers for their co­op­er­a­tion dur­ing the 2016 sea­son and wish all a safe and happy Christ­mas with hope­fully fre­quent rain­fall.
