Supporting Your Sustainable Transition 

As the glass manufacturing industry shifts towards that all-crucial 2050 net zero target, many of the internal processes will need to be adapted to become more energy efficient or shifted to support new renewable formats. Ben Wood Group can work alongside your net zero ambitions in the following ways: 

  • Installation of EV chargers for vans, EV forklifts, or cars 
  • Regular maintenance to detect overheating or non energy efficient machinery 
  • Electrical installation support for an electrical furnace

Case Studies

T600 Emhart I.S Machine Cable Installation

A European glass manufacturer reached out to us to repair the damaged electrical work supplying a legacy machine. Due to the age of the machine, the cables previously used were no longer in rotation, which before contacting Ben Wood Group would have left them with the only option to upgrade the full machine, which would have cost upwards of tens of thousands of pounds. However, through our connections and expertise, we were able to source the specialist cable materials from Germany and construct the full cables in-house, including the plugs and pins. The entire project from sourcing the materials to completion took 2 weeks, and only one of these days was the actual installation, meaning minimal disruption to the glass manufacturer’s process.  

LV Panel Board Upgrade & Furnace Installation

Renowned glass manufacturer, Clayton Glass reached out to our team to assist with the upgrade of the electrical infrastructure supporting the installation of a new furnace. To begin, our engineers conducted a site survey to understand the current infrastructure and supply available to power the furnace. Once the site had been assessed, our specialists advised what was required to get it up to standard and drafted a new design, outlying the containments that would feed the furnace. Once agreed, Ben Wood Group installed the LV panel board alongside supporting equipment and tested it to ensure it was ready for use.
