Application report: Sanofi Aventis
With ever-changing certification requirements legacy automation systems stay fast on the track. If operators however want to avoid high acquisition and validation costs and long downtimes due to modernization work, the solution may be migration.
Sanofi Aventis Germany has implemented a pilot installation at their Frankfurt-Hoechst location for a system that supplies pharmaceutical production lines with WFI-grade water. In the process, they illustrated that even a system structure that has grown in complexity over the years can be safely and efficiently migrated using a combination of B&R’s APROL technology and a well-designed strategy.
