Pfizer plant in Freiburg reduces energy consumption by 40 % thanks to Siemens technology


Siemens’ pioneering technology and services have turned Pfizer’s new high containment plant in Freiburg, Germany, into a showcase facility that sets the standard for modernity and sustainability. The innovative containment concept, monitored and controlled by Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, resulted in a remarkable 40 % reduction in energy consumption for environmental control compared to conventional plants.

Increasing safety for employees when handling highly active substances

Pfizer’s high containment facility uses the containment concept to ensure the safe production of drugs with highly active ingredients. Siemens Building Services ensures ideal production conditions, maximum safety for employees and increased efficiency by monitoring and controlling trades such as energy distribution, ventilation, air conditioning and heating. Thanks to this innovative approach, employees can produce OEB4 drugs while wearing only OEB3 protective clothing, resulting in smooth operations and optimal results.
