VALLADOLID MOTORES - RESA

The Valladolid Engine plant is specialized in engine production.  It produces 5,500 petrol and diesel engines/day along with a range of powertrain parts including cylinder heads, crankcases and conrods.

Situation 

The Engines plant lies close to the city of Valladolid, in a largely industrial area, inside the industrial complex of Renault Valladolid. It is next to a main road linking Madrid with the north of Portugal. The plant has an area of 25.8 ha, of which 14.5 ha are covered.

Highlights 

  • Improved distribution reduces waste   

The installation of self-serve systems for the distribution of straight-oil cutting fluids, soluble-oil cutting fluids and lubricants, alongside the centralized system of automatic feed of soluble-oil cutting fluids and detergents, covers 98% of the volume of products used in the plant. As a result, we have improved the availability of the service and reduced residues in oil drums, in which products were previously supplied, because we now use refillable packaging.

 

  • Soil protection

In 2007, effluent stores were coated with an extra sealant, ensuring watertightness and preventing pollutants from seeping into the soil.

 

  • More efficient technology

Valladolid Engines has a plan to gradually replace the turbines in the compressors that supply compressed air to the plant with more efficient compressors. Currently, two of the plant’s five two-stage compressors have already been fitted with turbines that consumes 8% less than the standard technology.
