German businesses SORG, EME and Grenzebach have teamed up to supply the Indian glass manufacturer Triveni Renewables with some of the industry’s best technologies and solutions. In India, Triveni is building a manufacturing plant with a melting capacity of 240 tpd. The construction will help the company take advantage of the growing Indian solar glass market through its subsidiary, Triveni Renewables Pvt Ltd.
The glassmaker’s choice is meant to fulfil Triveni’s desire to have a highly-efficient, environmentally friendly factory that can offer high-quality solar glasses. EME will provide Triveni with batch plant and cullet return system, while SORG is responsible for the melting furnace. Grenzebach will deliver the annealing lehr and the cutting line.
Triveni’s decision to commission a SORG melting furnace is based on SORG’s extensive experience in the solar and figured glass industry. It also highlights the benefits of the long-term partnership between SORG and Grenzebach to provide glassmakers worldwide with the best equipment for flat glass production.
In a statement, SORG said that they “have been closely working with Grenzebach in the flat glass sector for a long time. Together, we can jointly provide a complete technological line for flat glass production. The partnership allows customers to benefit from the technological leadership of both companies.”
