Honda Constructs New Lower CO2 Diesel Engine Production Facility

Honda has just celebrated the completion of a new engine plant to supply cylinder blocks and casting parts for its diesel engines in European models. The manufacturing facility, at Ogawa in Japan, will start production in autumn this year, following the installation and testing of machines and equipment.

Ogawa is the latest environmentally-responsible Honda manufacturing facility. It has been designed to decrease the amount of CO2 generated in the production of each engine by 40 per cent during the casting process, and by 25 per cent in the machining phase. The plant has only one production line, but this ĎAdvanced Flexible Line' can produce eight different types of engine, including the most sophisticated low-emission units.

Honda currently produces diesel engine cylinder blocks at its Suzuka factory in Japan, and will gradually transfer the casting and machining process of engine parts to the new Ogawa plant. The new Ogawa plant will then supply diesel engine parts to the Sayama factory, to go into the Accord for the European market. It will also supply diesel engine parts for Honda's factory in the UK at Swindon, which produces the Civic and CR-V models.

The completion ceremony at the new Ogawa engine plant took place on 10 April, 2009, and was attended by Shigeru Nakajima, Deputy GM of Industry and Employment at Saitama Prefecture Government, as well as Kihei Kasahara, the Mayor of Ogawa town and several Honda executives.
