Inergy Automotive Systems: Plastic Fuel Systems for Russia

Solvay announced that its affiliate Inergy Automotive Systems, world leader in fuel systems for the automotive industry, has started production of plastic fuel systems for the Renault/Dacia Logan and Sandero at its new plant in Stavrovo about 200km east from Moscow in Russia’s Vladimir region. The plant could also produce fuel tanks for local car assembly operations of manufacturers including GAZ, AvtoVAZ and Nissan.

The commissioning of the new plant in Stavrovo is a new step in the geographical expansion of Inergy Automotive Systems into automotive markets with high growth potential. Russian car manufacturers are replacing the fuel tanks in steel by high performance plastic tanks.

Russia overtook Germany in the first half of 2008 as Europe’s largest car market, but has since lost its lead in Europe due to the economical crisis. Though touched by the global crisis, some analysts expect that the Russian automobile industry will recover and become around 2012 the third largest in the world, behind the U.S. and China.

Inergy is expanding in Russia to meet growing demand from the country’s rapidly developing automotive industry. In recent years it already has expanded to the east by constructing factories in the new member states of the European Union. It runs factories in Lublin in Poland, Pitesti in Romania and Bratislava in Slovakia.
