Sugar Factory
  • The Clewiston Sugar Factory has the capacity to grind up to 38,000 tons of sugar cane each day during harvest season.

  • The factory contains one of the world’s largest milling tandems, the world’s largest evaporator plant, and an automated control system.

  • Energy-efficient, the turbo-generators generate 40 megawatts of electricity each hour, driven by steam boilers, fueled by bagasse – the fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane stalks are crushed to extract their juice.
