Plant revamp JDW Sugar Mills Ltd, Pakistan

In the year 2010, JDW Sugar Mills Ltd (JDW) a 20,000 tcd cane sugar plant with backend refinery obtained services from IPRO to bring down high steam consumption (52.60% on cane) of the plant along with capacity increase and cogeneration. During the plant audit IPRO identified various operational and equipment inefficiencies and suggested to reach the target in two phases to lower the investment burden and to use savings of first phase as investment for second phase.

Optimization of existing process & equipment

Whenever there is a discussion concerning the plant performance improvement or capacity increase, usually the first idea is to install energy saving/ additional equipment or implementation of modern technologies. Only a very few sugar factories consider to look inside to find the inefficiencies and bottlenecks in the existing process and equipment, but most sugar factories consider to go for new equipment for performance and capacity increase. Implementation of new equipment is not a bad idea, but it is an expensive approach.

Boiler capacity : A limitation in capacity expansion?

Sugar factories have often plans to expand the plant capacity but, in many cases, the boilers do not have sufficient capacity to handle the increased crushing capacity. In this case, the investment required to increase the plant capacity will be too high in one go when considering the big investment on a new boiler and turbine .
