Eco Dyeing: Ocean Lanka goes Greener and Faster
In the second half of 2013 Ocean Lanka completed the installation of 21 new low liquor ratio TEC Series High Temperature Dyeing Machines from Fong’s. This entirely new operation, part of a two phase project due for completion in August 2014, sees the removal of older and larger vessels, replacing them with brand new smaller and more flexible energy and time saving machines. By introducing a significantly greater number of smaller machines, Ocean has reduced lead times, increased flexibility on order quantities and maintained its 45 ton per day capacity.
School Library Construction
In support of the local community, Ocean Lanka donated a newly constructed Library built inside the Yatihena School, Biyagama. A library is not complete without something to read and with support of its key suppliers, Ocean was able to present the library with over 2,000 books inside.
