The Fiji Sugar Corporation has completed a full independent factory technical review for all the three sugar mills and work on upgrading factory facilities are underway.
Board Chair, Vishnu Mohan, says this includes major refurbishment of the Lautoka Mill diffuser, boilers and power station, new sugar processing equipment for Rarawai and upgrading of the shredder and milling equipment at Labasa.
Mohan is optimistic further improvements in the sugar mill factory performance are expected next season following this work.
He says they already recorded improved efficiency levels this year.
Lautoka Mill recorded a 32 percent reduction in mill breakdowns, with Rarawai achieving 37 percent reduction.
Overall cane supply stoppages reduce by 17 percent.
Mohan says performance at Labasa was however not as settled as last season.
