DekelOil Public Limited plans to increase the capacity of its crude palm oil extraction mill by 25% to 75 tonnes per hour.
It said this would allow the company to maximise production during the peak harvesting season in Cote d'Ivoire, which typically runs from mid-February to early June.
It said the mill's current 60tph capacity was made up of two lines each capable of processing 30 tph of fresh fruit bunches.
It said 'As part of the planned upgrade, one of these lines is to be increased to 45tph to bring total capacity up to 75tph.
'This matches the mill's total press capacity, which is comprised of five presses, each of which is capable of pressing 15 tonnes of sterilised fruits per hour.'
