German businesses SORG, EME and Grenzebach have teamed up to supply and Indian glass manufacturer with their technologies.

Triveni Renewables is building a manufacturing plant with a melting capacity of 240 tpd.

The construction will help the company take advantage of the Indian solar glass market.

The glassmaker's choice is meant to fulfil Triveni’s desire to have an 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 the furace supplier'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 with the best equipment for flat glass production around the world.

Sorg said it had 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."
