TechnipFMC completes construction of the new Boehringer Ingelheim Respimat® plant in Spain
TechnipFMC announces the recent completion of the construction of the new Boehringer Ingelheim Respimat® plant in Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona.
TechnipFMC carried out the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) for the expansion of the Boehringer Ingelheim facility, where the multinational pharmaceutical company has launched the Respimat® inhalation device production.
Managed from TechnipFMC offices in Barcelona since the first design phases, the project has been recently completed this year. The project consisted in the design and construction of a new plant to produce the Respimat® product in sterile conditions, and includes the production area, several laboratories, a warehouse, technical and office areas, and a waste management unit. Health permits were this year obtained from the AEMPS (Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products), for production in the packaging section.
Jerónimo Farnós, General Director of TechnipFMC in Spain, commented: "We are very proud of this milestone. The completion of this project complying deadlines and quality standards, positions us as a reference within the sector in Spain and TechnipFMC Life Sciences Division".
