This is a strategically important milestone for EME in the Southeast Asian market. The plant, with a capacity of 400t/d, is to be erected on a greenfields site close to the existing factory in Saraburi.
The parent company Berli Jucker plans, together with Thai Malaya Glass, to build three furnaces at this location with a long term view to close the factory in central Bangkok (Rajburana).
Nikolaus Sorg, in conjunction with EME, has provided an overall plant concept from raw material feeding right through the melting process, ending with the glass conditioning system. The design is based on Siemens standard components with intelligent control of the entire system.
Included by EME are all key components for weighing, dosing and mixing, cullet return and process control. Sorg will provide the furnace and forehearths with their respective control systems.
