Project Description

Hypersonic delivery of a mRNA COVID vaccine facilities

Project Delivery Partners have been working in partnership with Lonza at their Visp site in Switzerland since 2019. We are very fortunate to be involved in several high profile and fast track projects supporting with CAPEX Management, Start UP and Digital CQV services.

Notable our most challenging, but equally rewarding in term of speed to market, was the hypersonic  delivery of the Moderna mRNA COIVD vaccine facilities where PDP supported with Project Management, Start up, Qualification and end User support with Engineering batches.  The facility comprises of a number of Production suites, Clean Utilities and process mRNA equipment.

From ‘shell to shot’ in 8 months, this was truly a remarkable project which challenged our traditional CAPEX delivery model, our ways of working, our procurement and sourcing approach, supply chains and interestingly the way in which Projects and Operations co-existed, worked together safely to deliver a GMP operational facility and process including regulatory approval in a phenomenal time frame.

PDP are grateful to continue our collaborate with Lonza on multiple projects in Switzerland including Vaccines, Mammalian, Bioconjugates and Drug product facilities.
