Dacia produces 500,000 Energy TCe90 engines

The Dacia Mechanical and Chassis Plant marked in July the production of 500,000 Energy TCe90 engines. The Energy TCe90 engines produces in Mioveni are currently fitted on Dacia series (Logan,dacia-energy-tce-90 Logan MCV, Sandero and Sandero Stepway) and Renault series models (Clio IV, Twingo). Approximately 80 per cent of the production was exported. The Energy TCe90 engine is also produced in the Renault plant in Valladolid, Spain.
“The Energy TCe90 engine is one which the Mechanical and Chassis Plant takes pride in. It is an engine made in Romania: a great number of the parts integrated in it (transmission case, cylinder head, cylinder case, flywheel and crankshaft) are made at Dacia. The Mioveni Plant was the first Renault Group plant that produced this engine at global level, starting in July 2012. The production line is currently adapted for a capacity of 450,000 units per year,” plant manager Philippe Nottez stated.
Having an innovative design, the TCe90 engine weighs 15 kilograms less than an engine of similar power. It offers supple and energetic acceleration, combining the pleasure of driving and low fuel consumption (5.8 litres per 100 kilometres in urban areas and 4.6 litres outside urban areas). The level of carbon dioxide emissions ranges from 112 to 115 grams per kilometres depending on the model.
Spanning 18 hectares, the Dacia Mechanical and Chassis Plant is the second plant located on the industrial platform in Mioveni (alongside the Dacia Vehicle Plant) and the top Renault Group mechanical plant in the world from the point of view of the diversity of processes. The plant has 3,900 employees, 27 per cent of them women. The plant’s four production departments produce raw aluminium parts, assemble engines and gearboxes, fit front and rear axles, axle trees and engine blocks for Dacia, Renault and Nissan vehicles assembled in Mioveni and other plants in the world.
The plant is using the Alliance Production Way (APW) system in use in all Renault-Nissan plants.
