The Agroindustrial Sugar Company (EAA) Ecuador, from Ciego de Ávila, fulfilled its sugar plan of 14 thousand 118 tons (t), a result that makes it the fourth in the country to achieve it.
Iván Jiménez Darias, general director of Ecuador, a mill-refinery located in the municipality of Baraguá, explained to digital Invasor that they will make some 200 more t after the liquidation process, a result that satisfies them but not entirely, considering the deficiencies of the current harvest, which delayed the completion date, scheduled for last March.
The news, released this Friday, is very favorable, as sugar squads from Baraguá will support the cutting of cane in areas of the EAA Enrique Varona, in the municipality of Chambas, which are in low-lying areas to anticipate the start of the rains.
Eduardo Larrosa Vázquez, director of Coordination and technical supervision of the Azcuba sugar group in the Avilanian province, told the website that this contribution of men and means will be important, because the harvest strategy in the territory focuses on the Ciro Redondo sugar mill he will grind the cane that remains.
He added that four squads of Case brand harvesters, with new technology, and others from EAA Ciro Redondo itself will move to chamber lands so that more than six thousand tons of he plant can be reached more quickly to their tipper.
The objective is that for the remainder of April and until the days of May when the weather conditions allow it, the EAA Primero de Enero delivers a thousand t of cane each day, the EAA Ecuador 375 t, the EAA Brasil, in Camagüey , contribution 700 t, and the rest from the production bases of Ciro Redondo, stated Larrosa Vázquez.
To date, Ciego de Ávila has accumulated 68 percent of the fulfillment of its sugar plan, which makes it the third Cuban province to come close to its commitments, which can come to fruition because it has enough raw materials for it, reflected Digital Invasor.
This sugar dispute has taken place in the avilanian territory with not a few setbacks, since, for example, the bioelectric plant, close to Ciro Redondo, the most modern in the country, was paralyzed for 35 days, which stopped the work in that mill, responsible for produce the largest amount of sugar in the province.
The bioelectric plant, the first of this type in Cuba in the modality of foreign investment and a pioneer in the use of marabú as fuel, provides the power station with electricity and thermal energy necessary in its industrial process.
