Rebuilding of a glass furnace in Seville
O-I Glass is a group operating in more than 22 countries in Europe, Asia and America. As a glass container manufacturer, O-I Glass is committed to increasing the proportion of recycled content in its production.
CHOVET participated in the rebuilding of the furnace in Seville (Spain). The project also included the replacement of two of the four production lines, which were stopped during the works.
From 2020, we carried out the engineering of the new lines and prepared the specifications for the scope of fabrications, supplies and assembly (structures, platforms, boilerwork, piping, ventilation). After this initial phase, we followed up on the detailed studies and supplies, and then supervised the work, general installation and commissioning of the facilities in our scope. We sent one of our staff to the site for 10 weeks, with the help of a local supervisor. The challenge was to manage the coactivity with all the risks that this can entail and to maintain an ambitious schedule in the particular sanitary context. A successful challenge!
