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 be Always 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 couldn't beat. Cummins authorized distributor Orient Energy Systems Pvt Ltd (OES) provided the project engineering and sales support, with technical expertise from the engineering team.
Ghani Glass Limited is nearly doubling its production capacity at its Model Town Extension plant, from 300 tons/day to 550 tons/day. Five Cummins C1400D5 generator sets will provide 5 MW of standby power for the facility, which is being renovated and expanded. Ghani Glass makes float glass – widely used in construction and consumer products as windows, doors, furniture and mirrors – along with glass containers for pharmaceuticals, food and beverage.
Tariq Glass Industries Ltd. is building a new plant for float glass at its Lahore Sheikhupura Road, Sheikhupura location. Whereas glass tableware is the cornerstone of Tariq Glass, the company launched its float glass division five years ago. As a new customer, Tariq Glass noted the brand reputation of Cummins and strong customer service from the OES team, which included integration with an existing power system, to assure reliable power at the new float glass division for years down the road.
