Fives Stein has announced that it is currently implementing five major contracts for new float glass plants, which are in different phases of their completion. In Poland for the new 1,000 ton per day float plant of Euroglas, the tin bath has smoothly come into production and has been producing since the end of July 2009 at the premises of this long-standing customer of Fives Stein. In Turkey, the installation work of the 600-ton per day line is now completed. With the soon-to-come start-up of its first float line, the Okan Group will beneficiate from direct and competitive access to prime quality float glass for all its glass processing and sales activities, enhancing the strength and the dimension of this fast-growing regional glass group. In India, Fives Stein has completed the delivery of equipment and is finishing the installation for Sejal Glass 550-ton per day float line. While India is experiencing a boom in commercial and residential construction, Sejal Glass will confidently enter into float glass manufacturing with its new plant efficiently producing world-class quality glass. In Russia, for YugRosProdukt, the installation of the new plant, located in the district of Stavropol in the south of Russia, is now completed. The equipment and services supplied by Fives Stein encompass plant design and technology with the complete supply of the process line: the furnace, tin bath, lehr, the production of process gas plant, the cutting line and the air pollution control. Last but not least, the largest float glass plant in the Gulf States is being built in Saudi Arabia for Obekan Glass Company. The project is well underway and is now in procurement and construction phase. The equipment and services supplied by Fives Stein encompass plant engineering and technology and the complete delivery of the 800-ton per day melting furnace, tin bath, lehr and air pollution control equipment. This state-of-the-art APC will incorporate a de-dusting filter, an acid gas reduction reactor and a selective catalytic system for the abatement of nitrous oxides.
