CiNER Glass Agrees €80m Contract for Third Furnace

CiNER Glass closes the deal worth €80m for the Process Equipment of its third furnace at Park Cam site in Turkey.

CiNER Glass is proud to announce that it has signed €80m worth of contract to help build the third furnace at its Park Cam site Bozüyük, Turkey, that increases capacity at the facility by an additional one billion glass bottles a year. The total cost of the investment for the third furnace at Park Cam site is expected to be €130m.

As part of the deal, CiNER Glass has chosen HEYE International GmbH for the Hot End Equipment (acting as the Project Leader), LAHTI Glass Technology Oy for the Batch Plant and Cullet Return System, TECOGLAS Ltd. Meanwhile, for the Furnace, MSK Verpackungs – Systeme GmbH will help deliver the Cold End and Packaging Equipment, while TIAMA SAS has been hired to regularly inspect the machines.

The New Furnace will be capable of producing 500 tonnes per day and will have four 8+8 TG tandem production machines operational at the Park Cam site.

The furnace, which will be operational from next year, will also create an additional 100 jobs at the facility. This latest investment is further evidence of the company’s ambitious plans to increase its capacity at the site, as the company also plans to build a glass site in Ankara, Turkey, as part of Ciner Glass’ vision that will increase capacity up to 2,500 tonnes per day.

CiNER Glass first established Park Cam in 2011 to help provide glass container products in Turkey. The company opened its first production line in 2013 and completed its second furnace in 2015 to provide the world’s most technologically advanced glass bottles across Europe.

Executive Director of CiNER Glass, Mrs Didem Ciner, said: “This significant investment is a major step forward in helping increase our capacity at the Park Cam site – providing over three billion bottles a year – and offers a promising sign of things to come for the company. The announcement is part of our plans to drastically increase our presence, production, and delivery of high-quality glass bottles across Europe – as we look to build new factories in Wales and Belgium – and illustrates our ambition and determination to be one of the world’s leading glass producers.”
