Nigeria – Poultry Meat Study


In 2013 HVA International prepared a technical masterplan study for the establishment of a vertical integrated poultry meat project with a production capacity in phase 3, of 60 million broiler carcasses per year. The concept of the project, the required facilities and the production planning were prepared.

Nigeria – Poultry Meat Study


In 2015 HVA International implemented a complete Feasibility study for the establishment of an integrated poultry meat project. The project components are broiler parents, a hatchery, broiler farms, a feedmill, a processing plant and support departments. As part of the Feasibility Study a Marketing Study was implemented.

Oman – Date Palm by Products Study


In 2014-2015 HVA International as sub-contractor of Hail Agriculture of the United Arab Emirates, implemented a feasibility study to establish a feedmill with a capacity of 10 Mton/hour to utilize – chopped and treated date palm leaves, dates not suitable for human consumption and date by-products mixed with essential other raw materials – to produce a good concentrate for goats, sheep, cows and camels. The Project will also produce feed blocks based on date products.

Oman – Milk Collection and Processing Study


In 2010 HVA International implemented a techno-economic feasibility study for a milk collection scheme and milk processing plant for cow and camel milk. The objective was to establish a large network of milk collections points (96) and milk chilling centres (7). The herders will be supported through extension and training. The dairy processing plant with a daily processing capacity of 70,000 litres was designed to produce and pack pasteurized cow and camel milk, pasteurized laban, pasteurized yoghurt, UHT milk and six different fruit juices.
In 2015 HVA International in association with Hail Agriculture of the United Arab Emirates, prepared an update study for the above project.

Zambia – Cane Supply Study


HVA International (2013) conducted a due diligence survey on a Sugar Project in Zambia on behalf of Suedzucker, Germany. The present sugarcane productions per ha are far below the neighbouring Sugar Estate. Consultants prepared a listing of what to be done to improving the yields and to adapt a sustainable way of sugarcane production.

Kenya & Uganda – Sugar Project Study


In 2014 HVA International was contracted to study 4 sites in view of establishing green sugar projects. The preselected locations require more detailed studies related to water availability, draining the swamp, and land ownership before the best site can be selected and further full feasibility study prepared .

Ethiopia – Alfalfa Production Study


AC Company in association with HVA International implemented a study (2015) investigating the possibilities of an alternative to sugar by growing alfalfa and processing the dried hay for export to the Middle East. The project is attractive since phasing the investment cost typifies the irrigated alfalfa cropping project.

Ethiopia – Green Sugar Project Study


In 2015 HVA in association with another Dutch international operating consultancy Company AC conducted a study for the feasibility of a sugar project along the Wabe Shebelle river in Eastern Ethiopia. The crop has to be irrigated with a CP system. The overall project area is about 11,000 ha under sugarcane and a mill capacity of 6000 TCD.

Kenya – Cane Supply Study


HVA concluded a contract in 2014 to conduct a study How to effectively expand the cane supply to the existing rehabilitated mill. Consultants opted for a combination of increasing the cane yield level of the existing cane land by optimizing the cane farms of the out-growers ( cane cycle length, fertilizer distribution, optimal harvesting system ). Secondly in expanding the cane region and adopting newly registered farmers. Consultants advised the Management to improve communication with the farmers.

Kenya – Integrated Sugar Project Study


In 2012 HVA International was requested to update their feasibility study (final report in 2008) on the Tana Integrated Sugar Project ( TISP ). Mumias Sugar Company in Kenya, the owner of the study for an integrated sugar production, energy generating and alcohol production unit, aiming at a 10,000 TCD factory for about 20,000 ha sugarcane land. The energy production is based on a more energy efficient sugar mill, saving bagasse which is used to generate surplus electricity. Molasses – the other major by-product – is fermented and the alcohol prepared for direct sales.
