Nitura adjourns its plan to build textile complex in Mozambique

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2014-07-19 11:00:00 – Mozambique

Japanese company Nitura that planned to build a textile complex with units for spinning, weaving and apparel manufacture in the city of Nacala-Porto, in Mozambique’s Nampula province has announced the postponement of the project, apparently, due to a lack of security in some areas of Sofala province.

 

The project also included opening a cotton-based raw materials production centre, in Malema district, on a 4,000-hectare plot, to produce the cotton needed for the textile complex to operate and a seed-cotton processing factory in Nacala-Porto.

 

Given that the 4,000 hectares should produce 16,000 tons of whole cottonseed per season and about 30,000 tons per year, the company has received authorisation to build a cotton ginning unit in the region.

 

Nitura planned to produce an average of 16,000 tons of whole cottonseed per harvest and about 30,000 tons per year. They would use a production method providing two harvests per year with productivity of from 5 to 6 tons per hectare. A dam will be built to store the water needed to irrigate the cotton fields.

The cotton produced would be used for manufacturing a variety of clothes that would then be sold on the European and American markets.(macauhub/MZ).
