Vidroporto entrusts supply of process equipment to Glass Alliance

Vidroporto has chosen the four members of the Glass Alliance for the design, supply, erection and start-up of the whole production unit for its new container glass plant in Brazil.

For its new container glass plant in Brazil, Vidroporto chose Zippe, Horn, Bucher Emhart Glass and MSK Verpackung for the design, supply, erection and start-up of the whole production unit.
Although the four orders were negotiated and placed separately, the four members of the Glass Alliance community are very glad to be chosen in Q2-2013 by Vidroporto for the construction of its brand new container glass plant in Porto Ferreira, Brazil. The start-up of the state-of-the-art factory is due in Q2-2014, making the logistics matter a challenge.
This project being is considered as as a “Glass Alliance project”, and presents another great opportunity to demonstrate the close cooperation of the four members. The combination of the four members is for the investors a great benefit in terms of technical optimization, smooth work flow and financial risks mitigation. All interfaces between each section of the hot and cold ends are managed by the four members, internally, under the transversal control of cm.project.ing, while the overall project management remains in the hands of Vidroporto. The independent engineering company cm.project.ing has been a recurrent partner of the four members of the Glass Alliance for the last years, participating with them in successful projects.
The project was officially launched in July 2013 by Vidroporto during the kick-off meeting that gathered all key players such as the key managers of Vidroporto and, the project managers of Zippe, Horn, Bucher Emhart Glass, MSK Verpackung and cm.project.ing.
