More about Projects

Engineering

Formulating initial ideas in conceptual planning, creating a basic design as a basis for further project detailing, or formulating technical solutions concretely and professionally in detailed planning - all this is available from Bilfinger Life Science IN A PACKAGE or as an individual SERVICE to be passed on.

An experienced team of plant experts is available to develop pragmatic solutions quickly and with state-of-the-art design tools.

More about Engineering

Procurement

Especially in the project business, you have to get a lot of things right in procurement: the right products/services in the right quality and quantity at the right place at the right time - and at the right cost.

This is why our procurement management is an integral part of our services and is closely interlinked with project management. We have access to an extensive network of reliable partners and suppliers in the Bilfinger Group. The benefit for the customer: minimal effort in supplier management.

Fabrication

The production of high-quality equipment that is functionally suitable for the respective area of application is becoming an increasingly complex task in the global environment. Transforming the optimal and balanced combination of components into an excellently functioning whole is one of our core competencies at Bilfinger Life Science.

The right quality at a competitive price is the key to our customers' success in the marketplace.

Electrical, Instrumentation & Control

A tank, a pump, a valve, a flow monitor, etc. do not make a fully functional system. It is the application of a well thought out process control concept that transforms the individual components into a fully functional plant. We design and build with individual, customer-specific requirements in mind.

Bilfinger Life Science offers comprehensive solutions in the areas of automation technology, EI&C and control cabinet construction, as well as integrated and comprehensive IT automation and process digitalization.

We make your factory smart!

More about EI&C

Installation

Installing equipment on site requires expertise, project specific sequencing and organization. Coordination with construction management (overall site management) and compliance with safety guidelines and regulations is an integral part of our work.

At the same time, commissioning provides proof that all services required in the specification are actually performed under production conditions.

Early involvement of the operator in the commissioning process helps to communicate the function of the individual components of the plant and provides the operating personnel with a solid basis for subsequent operation.

Commissioning & Qualification

In addition to the highly complex and comprehensive requirements of modern GMP regulations in the pharmaceutical sector, there are also increasing demands for transparency and traceability in the food and Pure Water industries.

Bilfinger Life Science uses its decades of experience to offer state-of-the-art qualification and documentation solutions to other industries as well and to convince end customers and authorities.

Maintenance & Operation

Safe process operation, new requirements, new technologies, new ideas:

We also support our customers in the operating phase of their plants with our expertise for plants and processes in the life science industry.

The plants we design and build have a service life that extends far beyond any contractual obligations. Whether maintenance is mandatory, such as in the pharmaceutical industry, or requested by the customer, we have highly trained technicians and qualified engineers with many years of experience to do the job. These service specialists are already involved during commissioning and look after the systems and customers throughout their service life. The Bilfinger Group's extensive service network enables us to be on site quickly

Fermify and Bilfinger Life Science team up on Dairy Protein Disruption – Driven by Economics

With its knowledge on digitalized bioprocess technology, Fermify is developing a simple and fully automated production platform to address the issue of large-scale milk protein production. Bilfinger Life Science has decades of experience in designing, manufacturing and installing bioprocess equipment and is building modular automated precision fermentation skids for this innovative solution. The new platform will give food companies the opportunity to produce bioprocessed novel products economically on a large scale.

 

Wolfgang Dornfeld, Head of Business Development, Innovation and Sales at Bilfinger Life Science says, "Building fermentation plants is in our DNA and a proven success story in the biopharma industry. The partnership with Fermify gives us the opportunity to apply this experience to new promising and pioneering applications. Customers will greatly benefit from this partnership. They will be provided with a highly innovative solution from a science-based start-up combined with the know-how and rock solid reliability of a market proven equipment manufacturer."

 

Precision fermentation for alternative proteins with food application has achieved its breakthrough in 2022. Several companies are currently working to make animal-free caseins a delicious and healthy alternative to conventional products. A wide range of sustainability-oriented consumers, so-called flexitarians, eagerly await this new dietary option with the words "I want to go plant-based but I love cheese."
Enabled by a vast knowledge transfer from the bio pharmaceutical industry, we are not far from finding the first animal-free casein cheeses with the superior functionality of cow-derived proteins at the supermarket – however, still, overpriced premium products. 

 

The partnership between Fermify and Bilfinger Life Science will solve the challenge of economic feasibility. Bilfinger provides unique expertise in plant engineering and project execution, Fermify adds and keeps unique knowledge on digitalized bioprocess technology. 
The partnership is now first bearing fruit: The cost of fermentation assets has been reduced 3 times for the designed pilot plant within a few months, which allows our first customers to receive an affordable pilot casein production skid for the product development phase. This means, the collaboration will enable the cost effective  in-house production of bioprocessed novel goods  for large-scale food companies.

 

Fermify is developing a fully digitized and regulated production platform for continuous bioprocessing that allows customers without any biotech competency, e.g. dairy factories, to provide casein proteins freshly and at required scale. Fermify is delivering the production platform design, programmed microorganisms, an AI-driven software and the unique bioprocess control strategy to produce dairy proteins.

 

Bilfinger Life Science supports the market for alternative protein with a design-build-run model. Specialized in engineering, manufacturing and installing precision fermentation equipment, Bilfinger Life Science will offer modular skids based on Fermifys‘ proprietary system. The continuous multi-protein production system that consists of the entire production line, from media preparation to downstream processing, will be constructed, assembled and maintained by Bilfinger directly at Fermify’s customers, various leading dairy and ingredient companies from all around the world.


 
"We’ve spoken to more than 30 innovative dairy companies worldwide and have learned that the entire dairy industry is ready to invest in their own production facilities. Early adopters are already looking for an angle to get closer to economic precision fermentation derived protein technology and we are happy that they have found it in Fermify", says Eva Sommer, CEO at Fermify. "We are proud to be an enabler for this sustainable technology for dairy production by supplying a holistic solution to produce the proteins decentralized at dairy factories, a solution that allows a safe supply chain", says Eva. "We are very proud that a world-leading engineering and equipment provider such as Bilfinger Life Science is joining forces with Fermify to accelerate the construction of CAPEX solutions.”
