One of the most advanced sugar mills in Egypt
One of the Egyptian government’s longstanding economic goals is to make the country self-sufficient in sugar. New mills are under construction, and older mills are being revamped to increase overall capacity and help reduce the production deficit.
Sugar is one of Egypt’s most important crops and fastest growing consumer staples. Sixty percent of the country’s sugar mills are equipped with ABB process automation systems, and Dakhalia Sugar in the Nile Delta is a case in point.
Dakhalia Sugar produces some 120,000 tons of sugar a year at the Belkas sugar mill, one of the largest and technologically most advanced in the country.
When Dakhalia Sugar decided to upgrade the process automation system at their Belkas mill in the Nile Delta, they selected ABB after a review of leading automation suppliers.
