A fire last Thursday destroyed a major warehouse that supplies parts to a Renault-Nissan plant in Chennai, India. However, Nissan has announced that this fire is not likely to have an impact on alliance operations in the country. A Nissan spokeswoman sent an e-mail to Automotive News Europe last Friday. She said that production is continuing typically and that this incident won’t affect production or exports from India.

Third-party supplier Yusen Logistics Co. is operating this warehouse, which contains spare parts and accessories used in the plant on the southeast coast of India. The spokeswoman also revealed that the alliance was working on a contingency plan to reduce any possible interruption to the usual supply of aftersales vehicle parts from Yusen.

The alliance plant, which can build 400,000 units annually, produces models for the domestic car market in India as well as for export. Nissan's Web site revealed that the $1 billion plant, which started operating in March 2010, builds the Nissan Micra subcompact and the Renault Koleos and Fluence. The fire didn’t result to any injuries.
