It is with great pleasure that we announce that Oman Sugar Refinery Company LLC (OSRC) has reached agreement with Sinolight on an EPC contract to construct a sugar refinery at the port of Sohar.
The new sugar refinery will be a world class, state of the art, modern facility and will use the latest production technology to produce the highest quality refined sugar. The refinery will have a capacity of one million tonnes of refined sugar per annum and the contract will be managed on behalf of OSRC by Bosch Projects of South Africa.
This will be the first sugar refinery to be established in the Sultanate of Oman and will create employment for Omani citizens, diversify the economy of the country, create many downstream opportunities and above all enhance food security in the country.
The refinery will take advantage of the excellent facilities provided by the strategically located port of Sohar which include a deepwater port, adjacent container terminal and agro-bulk terminal.
The refinery will be wholly owned by Omani promoters and will produce an Omani branded product for the local, regional and international markets.
OSRC would like to thank His Excellency Sultan Qaboos and the Government of Oman for the support and assistance given to achieve this significant milestone.
The official signing ceremony between OSRC and Sinolight took place at The Grand Hyatt Hotel in Muscat on Sunday 7th June 2015.
