UCB Chooses Emerson for One of Europe’s Largest Biotech Plants

Belgium-based UCB has awarded Emerson Process Management a $6.1 million contract to provide integrated process automation and operations management systems for a new biopharmaceutical production center in Bulle, Switzerland.

UCB is investing $228 million to construct the first phase of a new plant, its first biopharmaceutical project in Switzerland. The 20,000-square-meter facility, which will be one of the largest in Europe, will be the main production center for Cimzia® (certolizumab pegol), which is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease.

“The state-of-the-art and largely automated facility at Bulle will be a model for the industry when it opens in 2015,” said Michele Antonelli, UCB executive vice president.
