Elkon, a leading Turkish concrete batching plant manufacturer, said it has joined hands with Dubai's Al Khaleej Sugar Refinery for the construction of a major agro-industrial complex in Egypt that is set to start beet sugar production.
 
Based in Jebel Ali, Dubai, Al Khaleej Sugar was established in 1992 with a production capacity of 2400MT. Since the commencement of production in July 1995, it made remarkable progress to achieve the status of the largest standalone sugar refinery in the world, which was achieved during last few years, with a production capability of more than 7000 tons per day.
 
The plant in Egypt is being set up under a land deal signed between Canal Sugar Company and the Egyptian government and once competed it would see the production of 1 million tonnes of sugar annually.
 
A major Turkish group with over 40 years of experience, Elkon said the project is being developed at an investment of around $1 billion to help fill a supply gap in the market and make Egypt self-sufficient in sugar.
 
The construction and concrete supply for the project is being handled by a leading engineering and construction company in China.
 
As a solution for this vital project, the Chinese company has decided to buy Elkomix-135 Quick Master Compact Concrete Mixing Plant.
