Under this contract, Wood will provide detailed engineering design for a new facility that will increase manufacturing capacity of biological medicines by eight million liquid vials per year, helping meet global demand for biopharmaceutical drug products.

Supporting Celltrion to expand its product pipeline and secure manufacturing capacity, Wood’s leading process engineering design capabilities will help Celltrion enhance production efficiency and reduce downtime transitioning equipment from one product to another, resulting in facility operational cost savings.

The project will be delivered by Wood’s global Life Sciences experts in Europe and India and will conclude in Q3 2024, with commercial operation set to begin in 2027.
