About This Project

In the dynamic landscape of global health, a groundbreaking venture unfolds in Singapore – a $638 million vaccine production centre, poised to become Asia’s first fully digitalised vaccine manufacturing facility by 2025. Spearheaded by Sanofi’s Singapore EVP and nestled in the Tuas Biomedical Park, this visionary project stands among 13 biopharmaceutical giants, drawing on a vibrant workforce of 7,000 individuals. With ambitions set high, the facility is designed to be a beacon of innovation, capable of producing multiple vaccine types concurrently – a stark contrast to traditional sites limited to a single vaccine production line. This digital fortress will leverage cutting-edge technologies and single-use systems, aiming to significantly amplify vaccine production for Asia. Moreover, its commitment to sustainability is evident through its carbon-neutral design, powered by solar panels and green electricity.

The Challenge

Embarking on this ambitious project wasn’t without its trials. 

The facility faced the intricate task of adhering to stringent seismic design requirements, managing a vast footprint across multiple buildings, and installing an extensive automatic sprinkler system. 

The congested services, along with the necessity for clean and cold rooms, presented a labyrinth of complexity, demanding a high degree of precision and flexibility in its execution.

It was a complicated and challenging undertaking to say the least. 

The Active Fire Solution

In response, a suite of sophisticated fire safety solutions was deployed. 

From seismic products and various flexible drops designed for cold and clean room applications to the PPVC pump and control valves modules, each element was meticulously chosen for its efficacy and adaptability. 

The modular foam monitor system epitomised the plug-and-play ethos, ensuring a seamless integration into the facility’s intricate ecosystem.

The Result

Through the adoption of DfMA practices, the project witnessed a substantial 30% cost reduction, alongside a dramatic acceleration of the construction timeline by 60%. 

The meticulous emphasis on quality assurance and the integration of sustainable practices led to a 95% decrease in installation errors, a 30% reduction in environmental impact, and a complete elimination of waste. 

Long-term maintenance expenses were slashed by 40%, thanks to the durable design components, while the system reliability saw a 60% improvement.

Moreover, the facility’s adaptability and scalability were enhanced by 80%, allowing for future expansions with minimal rework. 

This operational efficiency, paired with the reduction in raw material costs and on-site manpower, not only optimised space utilisation but also amplified worker productivity by 90%. 

Overall, the project ROI went up by 35% and as a result, customer satisfaction soared, underlining the success of the project in delivering faster, higher-quality outcomes.
