By the Jesús Rabí sugar mill, in the southern municipality of Calimete, the 2017-2018 harvest began in the province of Matanzas. In this fight, in the sugar mill, more than 38 thousand tons of sugar must be produced.
In addition, the fundamental objective is to grind stable and efficiently, said Tomás Zamora, head of the industry’s harvest.
“The plant is in optimum conditions to grind over 85 percent of its potential standard. The agricultural part prepared its machinery a month in advance to face the harvest with the damages caused by Hurricane Irma, “explained the manager.
The repairs period was decisive and the tipping area was prioritized, where higher power engines were mounted and the boilers were repaired integrally.
The industry is the first in the territory and the second in the country that is incorporated into sugar production.
