More bad news? There’s equipment malfunction at tower hill factory

Alfredo Ortega

And even as the gods seem to be frowning on the crop season, with more rain, less sucrose, impassable roads and the bagasse impasse prevailing, there is more bad news. Unofficial indications are that there has been some equipment malfunction at B.S.I., which would make milling at this time impossible, even if everything else had fallen into place. We say ‘unofficial indication’ because B.S.I. hasn’t said anything about it and the BSCFA can only speculate.

“Those are things that B.S.I. is not coming clear about. They are not saying anything about the condition of the factory. We have heard…myself I have heard from someone that even from the very beginning of December that they have some mechanical situation that they would be unable to start crop on the date they have said…that there is a part they are awaiting which will come on the seventh of January but we haven’t had anything clear from them that that is their problem so I can’t say that we have receiving anything from them saying that they are not prepared at this time.”


As we’ve said, the BSCFA hopes to meet with B.S.I. as early as Monday morning.

    now this man is reporting on behalf of BSI? what foolishness is this? this PUP aspirant for OW north has the single intention of being in the news to bolster his status as hero to farmers to help his candidacy against Vega.
