An accident at the Penang Mill on Tuesday afternoon is affecting the mill’s operations and output.

Fiji Sugar Corporation executive chairman, Abdul Khan, confirmed this.

“One of the road contractor’s truck had its tray up while putting grave on the road, he said.

“The tray actually hit the power lines and caused a fault of our generator at the Penang Mill.

“It also damaged a couple of our components and we are trying to replace those components slowly.”

Mr Khan said the mill is still running but at a lower pace.

“This is because we are trying to avoid the whole thing falling over,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Khan said all other mills are working fine.
