Melting Tank 8, which was put into operation at the end of May, was rebuilt to increase production capacity in order to accelerate its growing business. The facility now features an additional electric heating unit to increase the melting capacity, while the dimensions of the tank have remained the same. The use of microfloat technology also makes it possible to float smaller amounts of glass. A further microfloat tank, to be commissioned in 2011, will offer even greater flexibility.
