Solar glass float furnace restarted in Vietnam
NSG Group recently restarted a float furnace in Vietnam to produce TCO (transparent conductive oxide) coated glass for solar panels. The previously dormant furnace was upgraded as part of a plan announced in May 2018 to expand production capacity of TCO glass to support the growing solar market.
The furnace is one of two lines at NSG Vietnam Glass Industries Ltd, located near Ho Chi Minh City. TCO glass production at VGI has been positioned to support a long-term supply agreement with First Solar, the world’s leading provider of comprehensive photovoltaic solar systems.
