Omnicane Integrated Online Report

Performance
& Outlook

Energy

Some 11,369 tonnes
of cement additive were
produced during the year.


Our two power plants at La Baraque and St Aubin respectively operate with the main objective of providing end users with sufficient, consistent and uninterrupted energy supply. As Independent Power Producers, our power plants accounted for 21% of the total electricity production in Mauritius over the review period.

Agriculture

With the decreasing area of cultivated land, the strategic objective of our agricultural operations is to maximise cane and sugar yields at Britannia and Mon Trésor through good agricultural practices. We are also committed to implement sound sustainability practices in our fields in order to align with customer and regulatory requirements. With 196,097 tonnes of sugarcane harvested from 2,394 hectares of land in 2018, we represent some 8.5% of the island’s total sugarcane production.

Britannia has been the best performer
island-wide in terms of average cane yield and sugar yield in the last few years.

This marked the best operation performance,
since its inception in 2013, arising from adequate availability of molasses throughout the year.
