Initially progress was slow as the site floor had to be re-marked following last week's torrential flooding in Dunkirk; but the first columns are now up thanks to the dedicated crew who are erecting all steel work. Most of the base steels are fitted and modifications to buckstay and bracing steels have been completed.

NULIFE'S CRT GLASS RECYCLING FURNACE IS NOW TAKING SHAPE

Posted: 28th July, 2015

More than a year in planning, design and modifications, Nulife's CRT glass recycling furnace is now taking shape and becoming a reality.

The glass de-leading furnace previously installed at Nulife's test site in Manchester, England, was shipped to Nulife's Dunkirk site last year, during this time various imported furnace components have been customized for U.S. compatibility.

Additional furnace parts are on order and in fabrication, including electrical components, refractories and other timeline critical components.

Our UK furnace technology specialists and designers recently returned from a business trip to the USA meeting with our specialist suppliers to ensure production is on track and finalising delivery schedules.

With existing steel furnace parts being re-engineered off site, contractors have been on site to mark out centrelines in preparation for the foundation furnace steel parts to be installed this coming week.

Whilst the new CRT recycling furnace build has been much anticipated a lot has been going on behind the scenes at our Dunkirk facility.

Plans to construct a new CRT negative air pressure dismantling room is in progress, as well as refurbishment of offices and employee facilities.

For the last month contractors along with Nulife employees have been digging and laying foundations for new access roads around the site.
