EME begins Baştürk Cam Project

EME is celebrating the start of work on a new project with Turkish glass manufacturer Baştürk Cam.

The project involves basic and detailed engineering including a batch transport system to a new 500tpd Furnace B.

EME is also supplying a cullet return system, including two single fork link chain scrapers.

Finally, EME will deliver a complete electric control system with Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) technology, as well as supplying mechanical and electrical supervision services.

Sebastian Woltz, Sales Director at EME, says: “We are delighted to have started this project, particularly as the work follows our delivery and commissioning of the batch plant and cullet return system for Furnace A at Baştürk Cam’s Malatya factory in Turkey in 2017. Baştürk Cam was so pleased with that work, the order for Furnace B was actually placed in 2021 but the project had to be delayed because of the tragic earthquake in 2023. Starting production of the second furnace now is a real boost for everyone involved.

“EME is always ready to take on demanding projects around the world. We are very confident in our ability to exceed Baştürk Cam’s expectations.”
