First rolled glass manufacturing facility for photovoltaic solar panels to be designed by HFT

Calgary-based Canadian Premium Sand (CPS) has contracted McMurray, PA-based HFT as the EPC contractor to conduct pre-construction design and engineering for North America’s first-ever rolled glass manufacturing facility to produce glass for photovoltaic solar panels. The plant is to be built on a 121-acre greenfield site in Selkirk, Manitoba.

HFT will also design the related, sand-processing facility roughly 160 kms north, near Seymourville, Manitoba. The sand facility will process the low iron silica sand to support the production of low-iron premium clarity glass at the Selkirk site.
