EME begins Baştürk Cam project

EME, part of the SORG Group and a leading supplier of batch and cullet handling technology, is celebrating the start of work on a new project with Turkish glass manufacturer Baştürk Cam.

The project involves basic and detailed engineering including a batch transport system to a new 560 tonnes-per-day Furnace B.

EME is also supplying a cullet return system, including two single fork link chain scrapers.

Finally, EME will deliver a complete electric control system with Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) technology, as well as supplying mechanical and electrical supervision services.

Dr. Sebastian Woltz, Sales Director at EME, said, “We are delighted to have started this project, particularly as the work follows our delivery and commissioning of the batch plant and cullet return system for Furnace A at Baştürk Cam’s Malatya factory in Turkey in 2017. Baştürk Cam was so pleased with that work, the order for Furnace B was actually placed in 2021 but the project had to be delayed because of the tragic earthquake in 2023. Starting production of the second furnace now is a real boost for everyone involved.

“EME is always ready to take on demanding projects around the world. We are very confident in our ability to exceed Baştürk Cam’s expectations.”
