Pegas Nonwovens has reported progress on its Egyptian production plant project. The company says assembly of the production technology has been completed and the plant is connected to the power grid. Work has now begun on the initial commissioning of the production line, where all its functions will be tested and fine tuned.
"We are delighted to have reached further important milestones of this project. Connecting
the plant to the power grid was an essential step towards being able to commence the
next stage of commissioning the line, which consists of starting up, testing and fine tuning
the production technology," says František Řezáč, CEO and member of the board of directors of Pegas Nonwovens SA.Of course, a new line is not only about technology but also about the personnel who will be operating it. At the present time we are intensively training twenty of our Egyptian colleagues at our facilities in the Czech Republic and it gives us great pleasure to support their enthusiasm and active effort to quickly learn the production process. I am glad to be able to confirm that the project is proceeding according to the demanding schedule and that we continue to expect the production line to be operational in the third quarter of this year."
