New energy-efficient paint shop for Volvo headquarters

The Volvo Car Group is renewing the paint shop at its main Swedish plant in Torslanda. The production plant in western Gothenburg will be equipped with a new plant that will consume at least one third less energy and emit at least one third less emissions. Construction of the paint shop is scheduled to start in 2020. Volvo's goal is to switch to climate-neutral production worldwide by 2025. The Torslanda plant is the company's largest production facility, with 291,000 vehicles rolling off the assembly line in 2018. "We have identified our paint shop as the area where we can achieve significant savings in energy consumption and emissions," said Javier Varela, Senior Vice President of Manufacturing and Logistics for the Volvo Car Group.
