Guttridge Ltd delivers multiple orders for expansion at Kenana Sugar Company
Guttridge Ltd has won multiple orders to supply Kenana Sugar Company (KSC: Khartoum, Sudan), one of the world’s largest, integrated sugar processing complexes, with mobile conveying equipment for its expanding operations. Guttridge is also supplying spares to KSC on a regular basis to efficiently support the maintenance of an installed base of conveying equipment. To date, 25 mobile conveyors have been supplied, 15 for use at the sugar stores and 10 to handle animal feed produced from the sugar processing residue.
KSC operates a sugar cane farm covering around 100,000 acres, irrigated with water from the White Nile. Sugar production is a core business with bioethanol and animal feeds also being made from the cane crop, using molasses and bagasse, the residue left after juice is extracted from sugar cane. KSC is one of the leading companies helping to ensure food security in Africa and the Middle East. As well as processing sugar production, the company has additional integrated business units that are dedicated to poultry, milk, and fruit and vegetable production.
Guttridge Ltd is an experienced global supplier of all types of conveying equipment for bulk materials transport and has an established business reputation that extends over five decades. The company first supplied equipment to KSC in 2002, via a contractor, but more recently established direct contact following a trade mission to Sudan, which was attended by representatives from Guttridge’s UK and MENA (Middle East North Africa) offices. Opened in 2012, the Guttridge MENA office provides direct, highly responsive, local support to customers across the region. Spares supply is an important element of MENA support with Guttridge able to provide spares for any make of conveyor.
The mobile conveyors used for sugar provide a reliable and flexible solution for transporting material within the sugar stores. The 10 systems supplied for animal feed handling are used to convey bags of animal feed from production to storage or lorry. All machines provide efficient, smooth transfer, are simple to operate and can be easily adjusted to accommodate changing requirements within the stores environment. Two further orders already in progress, each for five mobile conveyors, are testament to the success of the provided solution.
