On April 14th, AVTOVAZ, the Russian car manufacturer, of which Renault owns 25%, awarded Fives Cinetic with a major contract to modernize its plant at Togliatti where it has a capacity of 700,000 vehicles per year.
After the new factory of PSA - Mitsubishi in Kaluga, Fives Cinetic was awarded with a major new
project which will be carried out in partnership with the Russian subsidiary Fives Stein Vostok.
The order, leaded by Cinetic Assembly, focuses on a total renovation of its final assembly line and the design and installation of an engines preparation line. AVTOVAZ plans to construct five car models on the same platform. This being a Logan platform whose technical name is BO. The construction of these five models will begin in November 2011. The first will be a Lada model, followed by one for Nissan in September 2012. Two Renault models will be released in January/February 2013.
At the same time, and for this same line, AVTOVAZ chose Fives Cinetic and its Rapidcharge range, designed by Cinetic Filling, for the supply of filling equipment.
