Significantly reduce carbon impact
Manufacturing medicinal and pharmaceutical products can be particularly energy intensive. Processing, cleanrooms, lighting, heating and ventilation all add to a plant’s carbon footprint as well as having a significant financial impact.
Due to the critical nature of producing large batches of life saving medicines and products, pharma companies typically have back-up energy assets in place, to ensure secure and reliable power for manufacturing. Some of these assets – standby generators, batteries and Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), are ideal sources to provide Security of Supply for the national power system when it’s needed, via Demand Response services.
In doing so, pharma companies become energy providers to the grid and enable more renewable electricity to be consumed, all while benefiting from a new revenue stream for the business. This additional revenue source has the added benefit of helping depreciating assets to pay for themselves.

The VIOTAS team delivered on their promise; to project manage the installation and commissioning of their VIO Link equipment within our Good Manufacturing Practices environment. They did this whilst engaging multiple internal and external stakeholders, constrained by a compressed project delivery timeline.
This process ran very smoothly, a theme that has continued with VIOTAS throughout the operational phase
