MECO Once Again Named in the Facility of the Year Award
For the second year in a row, MECO was named as a major equipment supplier for ISPE’s Annual Facility of the Year Award. MECO’s MSS Vapor Compression (VC) still, with the groundbreaking GII Centurbo Compressor technology, is used at the new state-of-the-art Grifols Therapeutics, Inc. North Fractionation Facility. The facility won the ISPE’s Annual Facility of the Year Award (FOYA) in the Project Execution category. The FOYA program is the premier global awards program that recognizes innovation and creativity in manufacturing facilities serving the healthcare industry. Projects selected for these prestigious awards set the standard for pharmaceutical facilities of the future.
Utilized in the critical utilities infrastructure, the GII compressor creates a more energy-efficient vapor compression system. Because they match production to demand, MECO’s VC stills have fewer starts and stops, so energy consumption is highly efficient. Other benefits of MECO’s MSS VC stills include less maintenance, improved safety, cleaner performance, reduced noise and a smaller footprint.
