Palm Oil Mill
The Company started commercial production of palm oil in April 1984 with a 3 ton/hour fresh fruit bunch (FFB) Mill to process palm fruits that were extensively cultivated within its catchment area.
In 1996 the capacity was expanded to 7 tons ffb/hr. with the acquisitions of a 4ton ffb/hr mill.
In 2003 the two small Presses were scrapped and replaced by a 9ton/hr Press complete with a Digester and other ancillary equipment.
In 2010 a major overhaul of the factory equipment was undertaken which saw the removal of virtually all the old equipment and replacing them with a state of the art 15ton/hr Mill imported from Malaysia.

Boiler and Turbine
In 2003/4 a 10ton Steam/Hr. @ 20 bar pressure waste fired Combi Boiler was commissioned to produce steam to run a 0.5Mega watt Turbine that was to generate electric power to meet the energy needs of the factory. The advantage of this arrangement was that the Boiler could burn ALL the wastes of the production thereby eliminating smoke pollution by the open burning of these wastes.
The excess energy produced is supplied free of charge to the local Hospital and the water pumping station.
Palm Oil Refinery
Water Pumping Stations and Tanks
The Company has four pumping stations and three water tanks of capacity 600m3 for production. It also serves as the main water supply for the community as a whole.
