Illovo Sugar appoints Bosch Projects as EPCM consultant
August 2017, News


Illovo Sugar appointed Bosch Projects as engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) consultants for the Nakambala expansion project at its subsidiary, Zambia Sugar. This contract, which involved the expansion of the raw house production capacity and the installation of a new sugar refinery, sugar conditioning plant and packing plant, was commissioned in May 2016, on time and within budget.

“The scope of the project encompassed the design and construction of a modern, high specification refinery, required to more than double the factory’s annual refined sugar production capacity, to 90 000 tons,” says Steve Rosettenstein, director: sugar, Bosch Projects.

Bosch Projects was also awarded the contract to design and supply sugar processing equipment for the project, which was manufactured in Durban to the highest quality standards and then transported by road to Zambia. State-of-the-art processing equipment was designed by the Bosch Projects team to ensure productivity, cost efficiency and extended service life at Nakambala.

This equipment includes a continuous vacuum pan, clear juice heaters, a vacuum seed receiver, condensate flash vessels, condensers and a press water clarifier. A refinery evaporator, a 50 metre high refined sugar conditioning silo and a lime and liquor wheel were also supplied.

Expansion of the Nakambala sugar mill and refinery has consolidated Zambia Sugar’s position as Africa’s single largest cane sugar producer and forms part of Illovo Sugar’s strategy to focus on growth within its domestic and regional markets. This project has also boosted the development of small-holder cane farmers in the area and provides employment opportunities for the local community.

Bosch Projects received a CESA commendation award for the project, in the category of Best International Project.
