Herbert river mills – week 11 update

Close to 179,000 tonnes of cane were crushed for the week taking the season-to-date throughput to almost 1.6 million tonnes.


CCS levels continue to slowly improve, achieving 12.96 units average for the week. The season-to-date CCS remains under budget at 12.56 units.


Monthly rainfall exceeded the long-term annual average for the second month in a row.


Wet conditions across the district resulted in cane supply shortfalls which allowed scheduled mill maintenance stops to be brought forward during the week.


This week Victoria Mill’s B-side will have a 12-hour maintenance and cleaning intermission on Wednesday, 1 September.


As always, please approach all cane rail crossings with caution and use your train brain.
