UCB selects Emerson Process Management solutions for new Swiss site

10th January 2013

UCB has announced that it will be using technology and engineering services from Emerson Process Management to support the development of its new facility in Bulle, Switzerland.

The pharmaceutical company will employ integrated process automation and operations management systems from Emerson at the new biopharmaceutical production centre, which will be the main production centre for the rheumatoid arthritis/Crohn's disease therapy Cimzia.

Its new contract with Emerson is worth $6.1 million (3.8 million pounds) and includes the Syncade Smart Operations Management Suite, DeltaV digital automation system and AMS Suite predictive maintenance software.

This will help UCB achieve its goal of ensuring the 20,000 sq m site is a model for the industry when it opens in 2015.

Michele Antonelli, UCB's executive vice-president, said: "To ensure the project meets its tight build-out schedule, we selected Emerson Process Management for its demonstrated ability to engineer and coordinate fast-track automation projects of this type."

The company laid the first stone in the construction project in May 2012, with the development set to create around 140 new jobs in total.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801519828-ADNFCR
