“Triveni posted strong results in FY23, mainly on account of higher sugarcane crushing, increase in ethanol production capacity and higher diversion towards B-heavy ethanol. The company is increasing its distillery capacity to ~32 crore litre per annum by January-2024 from the current 22 crore litres per annum,” ICICIdirect said in a note.

This would help the company divert more sugarcane towards ethanol in the future. Though Triveni Engineering has witnessed lower sugar recovery in the current 2022-23 season, its sugarcane crushing is higher by around 10 percent, which would help partially offset the higher cost of production.
“Moreover, increasing domestic sugar prices would also aid profitability in the future. We remain positive on Triveni Engineering from a longer-term growth perspective,” ICICIdirect added.
Triveni is one of the largest integrated sugar producers in the country. It also has a presence in the engineering segment through power transmission business and water and wastewater treatment solutions.
At 10.37 am, the share was trading at Rs 273.70 on the National Stock Exchange, up 3.38 percent from the previous close.
