Jet Aire, the Leeds based drainage company has started work as part of a substantial project that will see a range of sensitive drainage improvements made at a Manchester chemical manufacturing facility. The work is being carried out by Jet Aire on behalf of the drug development company CARBOGEN AMCIS.
This new detailed contract of works has been awarded to the Leeds based drainage company following the completion of an initial contract which comprised of the full site cleanse carried out with high pressure water jets. Jet Aire also carried out a CCTV condition survey that required the use of the drainage company’s Zone 1 Rated Atex explosion-proof camera system in order to navigate a number of different sections where precautionary measures were required to carry out the work.
The survey completed by Jet Aire for CARBOGEN AMCIS also utilised a team of engineers that were qualified to carry out high-risk confined space entries. During this survey, the engineers identified a number of remedial requirements. In order to solve the issues flagged up during the course of the survey, a second contract has been awarded that involves the traditional excavation and relaying of a number of areas in order to address pipe collapses in the facility as well as patch lining and repairs in the areas where the drain runs can be saved. This work is expected to be completed in December.
CARBOGEN AMCIS works to deliver drug development and commercialization services to the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries. The company offers a fully integrated in-house supply chain including complex APIs. The Manchester manufacturing facility also specialises in the process research as well as the custom synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates. The company has a larger production capacity of around 4,500 litres. This significant capacity allows the company to efficiently produce early-phase APIs and a number of large scale intermediates.
