Zippe has received the order for a batch plant for borosilicate glass from SGD in France.

The plant will be established in Saint Quentin la Motte in the North of France, only a few kilometres away from SGD’s factory in Mers- les-Bains.

Zippe will also deliver the batch and cullet trans- port to the furnaces, a cold top charger for the electric furnace as well as the cullet return system.

The batch plant represents a part of the new and modern ‘Greenfield’ factory that SGD is building at this site.

The plant will be completed with a control system made by Zippe.

The plant is scheduled to start operation in June 2015.
