Herbert river mills – week 15 update

The Herbert Mills crushed just over 200,000 tonnes of cane for the week.


There was a slight increase in CCS levels from the previous week, with the season-to-date average remaining below budget, at 12.64 units.


There were two scheduled maintenance stops during the week: Macknade Mill had an 18-hour stop on Tuesday, and Victoria Mill’s A-side had a 12-hour stop on Thursday.


This week, Victoria’s B-side will undertake a 12-hour maintenance stop on Wednesday, 29 September.


Macknade Mill will have a four-hour stop for shredder tip maintenance on Friday, 1 October.


With school holidays continuing this week, parents and carers are asked to remind children of the dangers associated with cane trains and harvesting operations throughout the Herbert district.
