Tully Sugar Limited is seeking expressions of interest from those interested in the ash removal contracts for the 2022 and two subsequent crushing seasons. With option to extend.

The Mill operates for approximately 20 – 26 weeks per year on a continuous crushing roster 24/7, with breaks for planned and unplanned maintenance, and as a result of unfavourable weather conditions. The crushing season extends from early–June to early–December annually, although these dates can be influenced by weather conditions.

On current production levels, we estimate the Mill will produce between 28,000 to 35,000 tonnes of ash each season.

Expressions of interest should be based on the removal and spreading of ash on growers’ properties. Grower quotas for ash are set annually by Tully Sugar based on forecast cane production for individual growers in the specific season. Contract management and administration will be performed by Tully Sugar Limited.

We are seeking from interested parties the cost per load for the range of zones as listed for removing and distributing ash for the 2022 season, with a CPI based escalation clause for the 2023 and 2024 seasons. Given the uncertain cost of fuel, we will accept tenders that nominate current fuel prices, with escalations for increases/decreases in fuel prices based on actual movements in the Brisbane terminal gate price.

Tender information packs can be obtained by email from office@tsl.com.au. Queries should be directed to the Chief Operating Officer on 4068 4790, and written expressions of interest will close at 5.00 pm on Wednesday, 19 January 2022 addressed to:
