With time HVA moved to Consultancy and Management. At present HVA’s experts advise on Sugar Projects and prepare Business Plans after determining the feasibility and viability. The viability of sugar cane production includes aspects of sustainability whereby soil conservation, crop water consumption and air and water pollution are of importance in design and operations.
Worldwide HVA also is involved in studies on sugar complexes and cooperates as an independent consultancy and engineering company with other reputed Companies for the processing of cane. Modern technologies are incorporated in order to save on energy demand resulting in extra revenues on sales of electricity (co-generation).
HVA aims at fully integrated complexes including the production on ethanol from the molasses produced as by-product in the process of sugar fabrication.
The modern techniques in sugar cane production include precision agriculture whereby GPS based technologies are applied in mechanical harvesting of green cane determining tonnes of cane per ha maps. These diagrams are used for fertilizer application adaptations in subsequent crop. Similar modern systems are applied for herbicide application in order to reduce pesticide applications and arriving at certified sugarcane production.
HVA International can assist any Client with the initial reconnaissance, subsequently prepare the feasibility study and constitute the Business Plan and assist the Client in engineering the financial package.
