Sugar plants EPC construction

Thanks to its proprietary sugar knowhow, De Smet Engineers & Contractors (DSEC) can carry out sugar related projects ranging from audits to full EPC contracts, being familiar with all aspects of the project’s implementation.

DSEC not only masters specific sugar techniques and technologies but also all related process auxiliaries, civil works, steel structures, installation works, start-up and commissioning activities, including training of the client’s personnel.


DSEC’s project design and Sugar Plants Construction management gives paramount importance to the respect of health and safety and environment norms as well as to technical efficiency and ease of operation.

DSEC has developed proprietary technological and thermodynamic models that accurately simulate the operation of plants, from overall Heat & Mass Balances down to unitary process operations. Such predictive models are particularly geared towards energy recovery and sugar color improvement with minimised processing steps.

The importance of steam and electricity cogeneration and energy saving has deeply changed the design of modern sugar plants and refineries over the last decades. DSEC is particularly proud of the results obtained in plants that have been built or upgraded in accordance with its design and recommendations.

DSEC’s independence from equipment suppliers and technology providers allows selecting the best possible technical solutions with a view of optimising performances and energy saving while reducing maintenance cost to the benefit of any project.

DSEC’s engineering skills combined with its agro-industrial processes expertise have been selected by major players for developing large scale industrial units from laboratory scale, pilot units and demonstration plants.
