Rising to the Covid-19 challenge in China
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, SORG has continued to provide emergency support to customers around the world.
This includes two major projects in China where, despite many adversities and restrictions, the furnace specialist was able to carry out essential work for Qixia Changyu Glass and Huifeng Glass.
SORG engineers were required to observe 14 days of quarantine under strict conditions and with various tests, before they were even allowed on-site. At Qixia, they started the assembly and tempering work on Furnace 6 in October.
Thanks to the high quality of the assembly, they were able to offer a remote support service, which worked well, until successful glass flow was achieved at the end of the month.
Following completion of this project, the team travelled immediately to the construction site in Huifeng, to take care of the tempering there in November.
