Renault opened the Titu Technical Center in Romania

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 17, 2010

An inaugural ceremony took place at Renault’s Titu Technical Center in Romania earlier this week. Attendees include President Traian Basescu and Patrick Pelata, Renault’s Chief Operating Officer.

The new facility is located on a 330-hectare midway between the Dacia plant in Pitesti and the Renault Technologie Roumanie (RTR) engineering center in Bucharest, the capital of Romania.

The facility will conduct tests on vehicles and powertrain components from the Renault Group and is equipped with 100 test benches for complete vehicles and components (shock absorbers, running gear, powertrains and others).

Extreme conditions are simulated to test resistance to cold, sunlight, rain and other challenging factors. The facility also has 10 types of track that offer a total length of 20 miles (32 km) that enable engineers to study vehicle behavior.

The tracks include a speed circuit, uneven road surfaces, an underbody impact zone, as well as water sections. Hiring began in June and by the end of 2010, it’s expected to have 300 workers.

The Titu site complements the Aubevoye and Lardy test facilities in France. For its first project, vehicles and powertrain components for the Dacia Logan’s B0 platform will undergo testing.
