Two diesel gen sets for project
Rolls-Royce will supply mtu generator sets to Just – Evotec Biologics’ new cGMP biomanufacturing facility in Redmond, Washington, USA.
The plant is designed with Just – Evotec Biologics’ J.POD technology, which incorporates small, intensified bioprocessing operations housed inside autonomous cleanrooms to create a flexible and deployable biomanufacturing space.
Pacific Power Group, a power generation expert and authorized mtu distributor based in Auburn, Washington, is supplying the two mtu 16V 2000 DS1250 diesel generator sets for the project.
The backup power solution features mtu onboard paralleling, sound-attenuating weather-protective enclosures and UL fuel tanks. The system will feature generator-mounted motorized circuit breakers for proper paralleling operation and is seismic certified, safeguarding operation even in the event of unexpected ground acceleration levels.
“It’s been a pleasure to execute this project over the past two years, from the preliminary design stages to now the delivery and commissioning of the mtu gen sets,” said Dmitry Kraskovsky, senior sales manager, Pacific Power Group.
Once completed, the new facility will serve as a late-stage clinical and commercial manufacturing plant and will mark Just – Evotec Biologic’s first North American location to feature its J.POD design technology. The result is a flexible platform layout that offers capacity scaling, allowing the company to adapt and respond to changes in manufacturing demand.
