Just after the eradication of the terrorism in the island, The Kingdom of Raigam took an investment decision to develop a saltern in Kuchchaveli in the Trincomalee District. A total of 1800 acres in extent, this project would become not only one of the biggest salterns in the island but also the biggest project in the Eastern Province. Total investment would be in excess of Rs. 500 million on completion of the project.
Main reasons for this decision by The Kingdom of Raigam can be enumerated as follows
1). Setting an example for other Investors to invest in newly liberated areas that desperately need investors (Both local & FDI) to come to such areas with their investment.
2). Utilizing the Periyakarachchi water-body for a saltern project will ensure idle resources (Periyakarachchi water-body) are put for maximum productive use
3). Enough space and other considerations are satisfactorily available on this project site to establish a Mechanical Salt refinery and a Vacuum Plant Salt in the 2nd stage and for expansion.
4). Manufacture of solar salt is harmless to the Environment
5). Development of the project will definitely lead to infrastructure-development of the area
6). Employment generation, especially for Unskilled People.
7). Human Resources Development
8). Salt at a reduced Price to customers due to reduced Transport Cost
9). Reducing and then elimination of salt-imports
10). CSR Projects of the Company –Artemia Cultivation, Shrimp Hatchery, Re-stocking of the water-body with fish fingerlings and other aqua-culture projects with government agencies – which can help the people of the area who have undergone so much hardships during the war.
We have already established three Montessori schools for the people of the area and a Kovil had been built incurring much expenditure for the predominantly Hindu devotees of the area.
The primary construction work of the saltern commenced in 2009 and is now nearing completion and the pipeline has been laid to pump-in sea water to maintain the water-level of the water-body so that through-out-the year fishing will be possible for the people of the area.
The next stage of the project will be setting up the salt refining plant. The building is now being erected and it is envisaged to be completed by mid-2015.
Plans are under way to establish a Plant to manufacture soda ash, chlorine and other salt based products in the final stages of the project. Electricity generation through wind power is also on the cards with the primary target of meeting the energy demands of the manufacturing plants.
