SMS group has installed and commissioned two submerged arc furnaces (SAF) at PMB Silicon. Additionally, SMS group supplied the complete power distribution system for the works, drawing on its strong international group network. Thanks to the effective, partnership-based cooperation between the SMS group companies in Germany, India and China, and the right choice of subcontractors, this project is a highly successful technologically reference.
The range of supplies for the PMB Silicon manufacturing facilities located in the Malaysian state of Sarawak, Borneo, comprised the mechanical equipment for the two SAFs and the associated electrical and automation systems. Additionally, PMB Silicon had ordered from SMS group the power distribution systems for the works. These systems had to be designed for capacities large enough to serve a second expansion stage in the future.
