Construction of high-quality rice mills completed

In a bid to produce quality rice, high-quality rice mills were constructed in Kyaiklat, Ayeyawady Region and are now complete, said an official from Myanmar Agribusiness Public Corporation (MAPCO).

The country’s top rice milling businesses will now be all in the same place, with this project’s Phase-1 slated to open in March. These mills are likely to provide about 60,000 tonnes of rice for export and 15,000 tonnes of quality rice for domestic consumption per year.

Additionally, 440 V.2.2 MW of electric power will be generated by a turbine-poweredboiler, which produces steam with the use of paddy husk as fuel, it is learnt.

It will be the first and biggest machine which generates the electric power with the use of paddy husk. This machine was imported from Lucky Export Company and the construction of this is 90 per cent completed. The installations of the rice mills which can produce 250 tonnes a day, the machines which can produce 200 tonnes of parboiled rice a day, two grain dryers with its capacity of 15 tonnes and the other two grain dryers with a capacity of 17 tonnes are now finished.

This project is being conducted by MAPCO, responsible for 55 per cent of the project, and Golden Lace Co., Ltd for 45 per cent, it is learnt.
