Bajaj Hindusthan Sugar Ltd

Bajaj Hindusthan Sugar Ltd. (BHSL), a part of the 'Bajaj Group', is India's Number One sugar and ethanol manufacturing company, headquartered at Mumbai (Maharashtra), India.

The Company has fourteen sugar plants, which are all located in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (UP): Golagokarannath, PaliaKalan and Khambarkhera (district LakhimpurKheri), Barkhera (district Pilibhit), Kinauni (district Meerut), Gangnauli (district Saharanpur), Thanabhavan and Budhana (district Muzaffarnagar), Bilai (district Bijnore), Maqsoodapur (district Shahjahanpur), Pratappur (district Deoria), Rudauli (district Basti), Kundarkhi (district Gonda) and Utraula (district Balrampur). These plants have an aggregate sugarcane crushing capacity of 136,000 tcd (tonnes crushed per day) and a distillery capacity to produce 800,000 litres of alcohol per day.

BHSL is also one of the largest ethanol producer. It is the pioneer of India's fuel ethanol program and is currently producing 38 million liters of ethanol in a year. In anticipation of emerging market demand, the Company has increased its ethanol manufacturing capacity to nearly 218 million liters per year. BHSL generates close to 430 MW of power from the bagasse produced in its sugar mills. After meeting its own energy needs, BHSL has a surplus of around 100 MW. The Company supplies a significant part of this surplus power to the UP state grid. BHSL recently embarked upon the expansion of its power generation capacity by 450 MW through the setting up of new coal based power plants of 90 MW each in the vicinity of 5 of its existing sugar units. These new projects have been commissioned successfully at an aggregate project cost of around Rs. 23 billion.

Besides this, through a Consortium, the Company, in a major diversification move, has also embarked on developing two mega thermal power projects in Lalitpur district of UP, each of which will produce 1,980 megawatts of power, the first being ready for commissioning early 2015.
