BATCH HOUSE IN STÖLZLE KNOTTINGLEY (ENGLAND) – ARTICLE IN GLASS INTERNATIONAL

Forglass has modified a batch house in Stölzle glassworks in Knottingley. After the completion of the project, Glass International published an interview with Forglass’s President of the Board, Piotr Knast, who talks about the company and the project itself.

The scope of delivery included 2 return parallel cullet transport lines for 5 lines, including two colouring ones, together with a batch house. We designed, manufactured, and installed the equipment with controls and visualisation.

It was a challenge because solutions had to be adjusted to existing buildings, and the deadline was short. However, there were a few things that made our job easier, such as very good cooperation with the client.

At the bidding stage, we made a simple and yet exceptionally functional 3D model of the plant, and such a model enabled ourselves and Stölzle engineers to find the optimal solution to satisfy their requirements. Each plant has its own characteristics, and you cannot just apply a common solution. You have to make an effort to listen carefully to what the customer is saying. I believe we made it.

Using limited financial resources, we delivered a world-class batch house.

This company is an important customer, developing as fast as our cooperation. We intend to keep that cooperation for as long as it is possible.
