Sudan’s First Ethanol Plant Was Made in Brazil and Shipped There

Brazilian ethanol plant in SudanSudan's first ethanol manufacturing plant, which is being officially
inaugurated this Wednesday, June 10, is Brazilian. With a production
capacity for 200,000 liters of sugarcane ethanol per day, the plant was
designed and manufactured by Dedini, a company based in the state of
São Paulo that makes machinery and equipment for the sugar and alcohol
industry.
The deal was closed two years ago, and the plant was transported to the Arab country in two maritime trips plus a few air shipments.

Sérgio Leme, the CEO of Dedini, explains that the plant will be like a business card for the company in Sudan and in Africa. "It is our first factory in the region, and we believe that its successful implementation will open doors in the continent," he said in a press release issued by the company's press office. According to Leme, Dedini is already studying similar projects in Africa.

The plant has been functioning since early May. Including distillery, fermentation and dehydration operations, it was purchased by the Sudanese Kenana Sugar Company, which also lends its name to the city in which the unit is installed and has a strong presence in the African country's sugar industry.

According to Leme, the plant may double its production, already under consideration by Kenana. The organization plans to expand the plant even further. The projects manager at Dedini, Gilberto Soares, should represent the factory at the official inauguration. The secretary general at the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, Michel Alaby, should also participate.

The ambassador of Sudan to Brazil, Omer Salih Abubakr, said that installation of the mill is just the beginning. "We hope to have new factories with Brazilian technology in Sudan," he said. According to the ambassador, this inauguration opens opportunities for new Brazilian companies to invest in Sudan.

"The country had good support from the government of Brazil to establish this partnership with Dedini. Now we hope to establish new partnerships and joint ventures with Brazilian companies," he said.

"Investing in Sudan is guaranteed business as the country has great potential, is full of natural resources and has land for agriculture and livestock farming," he said.

According to Alaby, "the deal between Dedini and Kenana is another example of the closer ties between Brazil and the Arab market."

Dedini is a global leader in the sugar and alcohol market. The company that produces custom-made machinery and equipment supplies clients in over 25 countries. With six industrial parks and 10 factories, the company has units in the cities of Piracicaba, Sertãozinho, Recife and Maceió.

The factory supplies parts, equipment, plants and units for several market sectors: sugar and ethanol, food, juice and beverages, biodiesel, breweries, cement, energy and co-generation, fertilizers, hydroelectric generation, mining, metallurgy, oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical and ironworks.
