Eppendorf: Topping-out ceremony for advanced bioprocess site in J├╝lich

September 2022. Eppendorf’s bioprocess site in Jülich (DE) is expanding with the construction of a new, state-of-the-art multi-functional building with 3,600 m². The topping-out ceremony on September 15 heralded the final construction phase for the new building, which sets standards in sustainability and digitization. With the additional space, DASGIP Information and Process Technology GmbH, a wholly owned Eppendorf subsidiary, will increase its production capacity by up to 20 percent once the building is complete. The company develops and produces innovative bioprocess solutions for the world market in Jülich.

The building with three floors and an area of around 3,600 m² noticeably expands the company's logistics and production areas and also offers a large number of additional modern, light-flooded offices and meeting rooms. With the new building, the available area of the site will be more than doubled and the production capacities will be significantly increased.

Focus on Sustainability and Digital Production
The building is being constructed in accordance with the KfW Efficiency House 40 Plus standard and has received the platinum certificate from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). There are re-used building materials and high-quality insulation. Heat pumps of the highest efficiency class ensure optimal room temperatures. A green roof promotes a pleasant building climate and helps to save energy costs. In addition, a photovoltaic system generates more energy on sunny days than the building consumes. When the toilet level is sufficient, the toilet flush is fed via a rainwater retention system.

Planning and production processes as well as the building control technology will be fully digitized in the future. Work orders and work steps are triggered and confirmed electronically. Another technical highlight are industrial robots that take over the transport of components between the internal storage areas and production.
