Case Study: Drive Retrofit Boosts

The Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida is a 54-member sugar farmers’ cooperative that provides its members assistance with agricultural administration and processing operations for their more than 70,000 acres of sugarcane. At its Belle Glade plant, 24,000 tons of sugar cane is ground daily, producing 350,000 tons of raw sugar annually, on average. During the October through April harvest season, the plant operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Because sugar cane must be processed within a day of harvest, high throughput is essential.
