SEMF have completed the installation of two new production lines for the manufacture and processing of laminated glass and mirror products at Viridian Glass’ Dandenong site.

Viridian is Australia’s number one glass provider with a long history of glass making. The new Jumbo laminating line is capable of production the largest laminated sheets of glass in Australia.

After completing an initial cost feasibility study for a number of options, SEMF was given approval to proceed with the preferred option in late 2011. SEMF’s multidisciplinary team were engaged to assist with the delivery of the multifaceted project utilising their capabilities in Civil, Structural, Electrical and Environmental Engineering and Project Management.

The project, undertaken and completed in an ongoing plant operating environment, took 15 months to complete and involved a wide range of tasks including;

  • Removal and demolition of 3 existing production lines and associated building infrastructure
  • Refurbishment of an existing raw materials shed (1460m²) to be used for glass storage
  • Modification to an existing precast wall and civil construction of a pit to host a new 60T autoclave
  • Upgrade of mechanical services to meet the demands of the new autoclave, including installation of a new cooling tower and air receiver
  • Installation of the new 110m long laminating line which can handle glass sizes up to 3210 x 6000mm
  • Installation of a new 55m long repack and splitting line
  • Installation of a new 2000kVA transformer, HV cabling and main supply MCC
  • Installation of a new two level whiteroom, which is temperature and humidity controlled for product storage
  • Upgrade of an existing coolroom to increase storage capacity
