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.
