Tses Glass (Pty) has signed a Project Management and Engineering Agreement with the German based Heye International GmbH for a new container glass plant.
The construction of the container glass plant will start in May 2014 and be completed 26 months later. Between now and May 2014, different infrastructure projects such as energy, water, transport, and raw materials will need to be developed independently and be fully operational before the construction starts in order to efficiently serve the Tses Glass container glass factory.
Tses Glass is being developed to have all four separate manufacturing plants in a single location in Tses, Southern Namibia, starting out with a 250 tons per day container glass plant, 600 tons per day float glass plant, 350 tons per day tableware glass plant, and 200 tons per day ultra-thin glass plant.
The development of Tses Glass is expected to create more than 230,000 direct and indirect job opportunities in Tses and throughout Namibia. Tses Glass was officially launched on the 6th February 2013 in Tses with more than 500 people in attendance.
