Production boost for glass manufacturers

First Quarter 2020 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

A pair of 5 MW standby power systems from Cummins are providing extra protection at two glass manufacturing facilities in Lahore, Pakistan that are growing their businesses, allowing production lines to always be on, and operations to continue seamlessly, even in the event of a power outage.

In both cases, Cummins offered a quality, reliable product at a price that the competition could not beat. Cummins authorised distributor Orient Energy Systems (OES) to provide the project engineering and sales support, with technical expertise from the engineering team.

Ghani Glass is nearly doubling its production capacity at its Model Town Extension plant, from 300 tons/day to 550 tons/day. Five Cummins C1400D5 gensets will provide 5 MW of standby power for the facility, which is being renovated and expanded.

It manufactures float glass, used widely in construction and consumer products such as windows, doors, furniture, and mirrors, along with glass containers for pharmaceuticals, food and beverage. It is the number one glass brand in Pakistan, and exports to over 26 countries.

Whereas glass tableware is the cornerstone of Tariq Glass Industries, the company launched its float-glass division five years ago. Tariq Glass is increasing the capacity of its Lahore Sheikhupura Road, Sheikhupura location, where it is building a new float-glass plant.

As a new customer, Tariq Glass noted the brand reputation of Cummins, along with strong customer service from the OES team, as its main reasons for entering into this partnership, which will assure reliable power at the new float-glass division for years down the road.
