The challenging project commissioned during 2020 by the Russian company Glacem to RevimacFusiontec is dealing with the extension of an existing working-end and the supply of a new high performance 100 TpD forehearth.

The dismantling and demolition of the existing parts for the connection and installation of the new working-end extension will be done without stopping the glass production and for this reason a very good coordination between the customer and Revimac has been the key point of the project. All the technical details and engineering documents have been exchanged and agreed upon all along the development of the entire job.
