Dacia Mioveni will build 300,000 overcharged petrol engines each year

Local carmaker Dacia will start building its petrol turbo engine codenamed H4 in the second half of next year, followed by the H5 engine at a later moment, sources with Renault Romania said, quoted by HotNews.ro. The maximum production capacity of the Mioveni plant will eventually reach 300,000 engines – H4 and H5 – a year.  “150,000 engines will be built in the first full year of production, and later, when the H5 engine will be assimilated into production, the output will increase to 300,000 a year,” explained the source. The engines will be delivered to the factories operated by Groupe Renault and will equip several models of cars, also the new Dacia models, including the new Logan. The models belong to a new generation of petrol turbo engines with capacities between 0.9 and 1.2 liters, which will be launched in 2012, giving from 90 to 115 HP, Renault sources announced in the past. The commercial names might be TCe 90 and TCe 115, similarly to the present TCe 130 (petrol turbo engine of 1.4 liters and 130 HP). Renault will also use European money for the production of these engines in Romania.
