Empee Sugars & Chemicals Ltd – Ambasamudram

The Ambasamudram Unit established in 2010 is an ultra modern integrated Sugar Complex, situated in Ambasamudram Taluk, Tirunelveli District. The Mill has a crushing capacity of 5000 TCD, expandable to 8000 TCD. A 50 MW Power Plant and a 100 KLPD Distillery are integrated with the Sugar Mill, ensuring judicious use of the byproducts for generating additional revenue. Latest manufacturing technology is embraced at Ambasamudram, some of the salient features are:

  1. Lowest Steam consumption (36% on cane crushed)
  2. 690 Volt AC Motor for mill drives for reducing harmonic level in DC motors
  3. Syrup and melt clarification system for improving sugar quality.
  4. Sugar Sizer for better separation of Sugar and powder Sugar.
  5. Short retention clarifier with modified flash tank to reduce the retention time and avoid inversion of sugar.
  6. Steps like Variable Frequency Drives, Toothed Roller Pressure Feeders, Single Entry Spray Condensers, Flash Recovery Systems, Gravity based Cooling Towers, Vertical Crystallizers., etc., have been incorporated to minimize power consumption.

The sugar Complex is located where high fertile lands are surrounded with virgin soil and availability of abundant ground water.

Tuticorin Port is about 80 Kms from the Site which is very useful for import / export operations of raw material and finished product. This also is helpful for importing coal to operate the Boilers during non-crushing season.

Proximity of the Mill to major towns like Tirunelveli, Tuticorin, Nagercoil and Madurai acts as an incentive to the Sugar dealers in these places as their logistic expenditure will be minimal. Major cities of Kerala State like Trivandrum, Kollam, Cochin also being nearer to our location than any other Sugar Factories is an added locational advantage for netting increased revenue.
