Volvo invests in its



Published October 20, 2006
Volvo Construction Equipment has announced plans to build a new paint shop at its Hallsberg plant, representing an investment of SEK 150 million (Swedish kroners). The new paint shop will result in improved quality, greater capacity, lower costs and a range of environmental benefits, including a reduction in solvent emissions by more than 50%, as well as greenhouse gas emissions.
The new paint shop, which will have its own sewage works, will also generate smaller waste volumes. In addition, it will use less energy, and water discharges to the municipal sewage works will be cut in half, despite an increase in production volumes.
The new combined cabin, tank and bodypart paint shop will use the latest powder-coating and water-based primer technology, and will be built next to the cab plant. Construction work is due to start this year, and the paint shop is expected to begin production at the start of 2008.
