Mott MacDonald appointed as EPCM consultant for Greenfield Formulation Facility, India

Mott MacDonald Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Piramal Healthcare Limited to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for Greenfield Formulation Facility in the state of Sikkim in India. The new manufacturing facility for pharmaceuticals formulation is anticipated to be worth around INR 700 million (16.5 million USD).

Sikkim is a landlocked north Indian state and is emerging as a major pharma cluster in the country, being home to as many as 14 major pharma companies, which have significant investments in the state. The recent announcement of the construction of the rail link in Sikkim is providing a further incentive to the manufacturing sector for investing in the state.

The state of Sikkim is a wholly mountainous terrain and the site is on a slope which has a 70m height variance across its 160m wide contour, which means that Mott MacDonald's world class engineering design and management skills will be called heavily upon to successfully deliver this project.

Mott MacDonald project director, M C Jagtiani said:

"We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded a role on this exciting and challenging project by Piramal Health Care Limited at Sikkim. We have had a long and successful association with Piramal Health Care in the past, having executed five major pharma projects in other parts of the country.

Work on the formulation facility which manufactures oral solid dosages (tablets, capsules, liquid orals and ointments) is due for completion in the beginning of 2011.
