Shri Ambalika Sugar Private Limited located at Ambika Nagar, Taluka Karjat, District Ahmednagar -414403, Maharashtra is a Private Company incorporated on 11thMay 2011. The sugar plant of 2500 TCD capacity (expandable to 4000 TCD) with 15MW cogeneration is designed, manufactured, erected and commissioned by UTTAM on EPC basis.
During the execution of project, the plant was upgraded with few additions/alterations such as:
Boiler capacity enhanced from 80 t/h to 90 t/h
Balancing Pump capacities
1 no. Cane Unloader Trolley – 7.5 t SWL
1 no. Feeder Table
1 no. Semi-kestner – 2700 m²,
1 no. Vapor Line Juice Heater – 350 m²,
1 no. Batch type Vacuum Pan – 100 t
1 no. Pan Supply Tank
1 no. Crystallizer – 110 t
1 no. Batch Centrifugal – 1750 kg/charge
1 no. Continuous Centrifugal – Æ 1100 mm
The sugar plant has been operating successfully for the past two sugarcane crushing seasons. The plant is now crushing at an average crushing capacity of 4039 TCD (including stoppages) and 4170 TCD (excluding stoppages). The mechanical stoppages on account of machinery and equipments remained zero. The peak capacity achieved from the plant was 4570 TCD on 27.01.2014.
