Sisecam has invested $56 million to renovate its flat glass furnace at its production facility in Halol, India.
The furnace will produce flat glass, mirror, and frosted glass with a daily production capacity of 650 tons.
Thanks to the electric boosting capability and the improved design of the renewed furnace, 15% energy saving is expected after the renovation.
Sisecam has been operating in India for more than 10 years.
In 2013, Sisecam started production operations in the country by purchasing a 50% stake in HNG Float Glass India. In 2018, it purchased the remaining 50% stake in the company.
After almost four months of cold repair, Sisecam is now ready to produce approximately 200.000 tons of flat glass, mirrors, and frosted glass at its renewed furnace annually.
The Turkish glass manufacturer has invested $203 million in India to date and employs 264 people in its Halol facility.
The company exports from its Halol plant to many countries, including Sri Lanka, Qatar, Nepal, Maldives, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, and Brazil.
