Alvogen is an international pharmaceutical company that specialises in the development and production of generics, over-the-counter medicines, and biotech drugs.

More about the project

Within the centre, high-quality biotech drugs will be developed that are important for the treatment of various common and difficult diseases such as arthritis, other autoimmune diseases, and cancer.

In 2013, the construction of a high-tech centre that deals with the development and production of biotech drugs began at Alvogen’s sister company in Iceland, Alvotech. The building will house production, laboratories, and offices.

The house management system consists of 5 industrial computers, Siemens S7-1200 and S7-1500, with a total of about 1,000 inlets and outlets. The display system Siemens WinCC has around 4,000 symbols and 40 screens.

Verkís handled the design of control systems for the building management system and 400 distribution systems for production and auxiliary systems, as well as commissioning and testing of these systems.
