The Saarlouis investment will pay for “state-of-the-art production equipment, logistical support, and energy supply projects” at the plant, according to Ford website.

The investment covers the deployment of five new cogeneration units from STEAG New Energies, which produce both electricity and heat for the facility with an overall CO2 reduction of 20 per cent expected.

“This €600 million investment reconfirms Ford’s continuing commitment to Germany, our main center of operations in Europe,” says Ford Europe President and CEO Jim Farley.
