The State owned Sudanese Sugar Company is regarded as one of the successful public sector companies and vital economic pillars in Sudan. It has an annual capacity of crushing 4,320,000 tons of sugar cane and produce 430,000 tons of sugar. The group owns 4 Sugar Factories viz. Assalya, New Halfa, Guneid and Sennar Sugar Factory.
Uttam Sucrotech International Private Limited has executed a turnkey 13 MW co-generation plant with Civil Work and Bagasse Handling System for Assalaya Sugar Factory, Assalaya. In addition to above USIPL has also designed, manufactured, supplied, erected & commissioned “Pressure Stabilization System” and “Juice Stabilization System” in all the four existing Sugar Factories of Sudanese Sugar Company namely:
- Assalya Sugar Factory, Rabak Town Capacity: 6500 TCD
- New Halfa Sugar Factory, Halfa Town Capacity: 5500 TCD
- Guneid Sugar Factory, Medni Town Capacity: 5500 TCD
- Sennar Sugar Factory, Sennar Town Capacity: 6500 TCD
With the commissioning of “Pressure Stabilization System” and “Juice Stabilization System”, the Assalaya Sugar Factory was able to provide steam for a successful operation of 13 MW Steam Turbine. This addition of 13 MW Steam Turbine was done without making any investment on Steam Generation Unit. The Power Plant layout was made compact to be accommodated in the existing and operating Sugar Plant without any hindrance and stoppage of work.
This upgradation in all 4 Sugar Factories also led to the improvement in the color of the Sugar and achieved Steam Saving.
POSITIVE IMPACT OF THE PROJECT IN THE REGION
Of the total generation, 6.5 MW Power was exported to the national grid that provided much needed illumination to the nearest cities and town.
