We have been in the glass market since 1884 and have gained a reputation for working accurately, expeditiously, and in a proper manner. Our HORN® project management team takes care of all matters and leads the customer from the first conversation till the first glass flow. Even after commissioning, we ensure a trouble-free furnace operation through technical advice and training of your operations staff.
We treat every customer based on individual needs. When you’d like to know more about our project management, don’t hesitate to contact us!
A feasibility study is most of the times the first step into a project. It can help with the important decision “to be or not to be“ or perhaps “to build or not build”, as it provides validity in explaining factors relating to the glass plant location, market potential, financing, etc.
Basic Engineering represents the kickoff of every project and usually lasts between 2 to 3 months. In this phase we take care of every facet of the planned project, even if you don’t have a feasibility study at hand.
The following activities are considered during the Detail Engineering phase; coordination of deliveries and services, as well as the monitoring of interfaces between the subcontractors, HORN® and the customer’s planning institute.
Generally, there are several parties involved in a project, which is why plant manufacturing needs an “upper hand” to control all processes and solve issues. Our project team coordinates all activities on site between all project participants.
The new glass production lines, which are implemented as a “turn key project”, as well as existing glass plants complain about a lack of qualified personnel. As the technologies and equipment continue to develop every year, we – HORN® – have come up with a training concept that meets your needs.
