  • Ensuring continuity in biopharmaceutical manufacturing

    UCB Farchim, a biopharmaceutical company located in Switzerland, increases power supply reliability with innovative EcoStruxure Power solutions.

What does it take to create Buildings of the Future?

Build new or modernise with innovative solutions and services that prioritise sustainability, resiliency, efficiency, and people — build it for life, today.

The Challenge

• UCB Farchim produces around two billion pills annually to help improve the lives of people suffering from neurological disorders, such as epilepsy, and autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn's disease.

• Even a short power outage could alter the manufacturing processes and affect the supply of medications.

• To ensure the continuity and stability of biopharmaceutical processes, UCB Farchim needs first-class quality and reliability of power supply.

The Solution

Reliable power supply with EcoStruxure Power

Edge Control: EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert
Connected Products: SM6-24 medium-voltage switchgear, Trihal MV transformer, Prisma low-voltage smart panels, MasterPact MTZ circuit breakers, Harmony HMI terminals, Easergy TH110 wireless thermal sensors, Easergy CL110 wireless environmental sensors, Easergy Sepam series protection relays

• To prevent power outages, UCB Farchim has fully digitised the power supply network at the Bulle site, both at low and medium voltage levels.

• The company chose to implement EcoStruxure Power solutions (connected products and edge control), as well as to upgrade the existing Schneider Electric equipment with wireless temperature and humidity sensors.

• The data collected across the installation are now consolidated into a single management tool, EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert, for timely power network status insights.

• The data shows any potential abnormal conditions making it quick to identify electrical disturbances. When a deviation is detected, an alert is sent in real time, so the crew can act on site or remotely to ensure a continuous supply of electricity.

The Results

• With a comprehensive overview of its electrical network, UCB Farchim has reduced maintenance costs and time by 30–35%.

• Early detection of abnormal conditions allows UCB Farchim's crew to take appropriate countermeasures to avoid production downtime that could lead to significant financial losses.
