Renault selected Egis for the engineering, procurement and construction of its new Tangiers plant (phase 1). For phase 2 of the project, Renault concluded a design-build contract with Vinci Construction to extend the phase-1 buildings. The project is based at Meloussa (300 hectares) and Tanger Méditerranée port (13 ha). Annual production capacity stands at 170,000 units.
Phase 1 of the Renault Tangiers plant project will see the construction of 36 buildings, including 180,000 sq. m of industrial buildings (drawing, sheet metalwork, painting, assembly, bumpers, exhausts, seats, etc.), 20,000 sq. m of service buildings (administration, cloakrooms, training-centre) and utilities (energy and biomass plants, physical-chemical facilities, service station).
In phase 2, the industrial buildings will be extended by a further 125,000 sq. m and the services buildings by 4,000 sq. m (cloakrooms).
One of the features of the project is the requirement to design methods to ensure the integration of the processes specific to each unit, within a very short time frame.
The site also has an excellent environment policy, including energy recovery, zero industrial wastewater discharge, a biomass plant, and electricity from renewables. The site's environmental performance was recognised by the European Union in 2011 with a Sustainable Energy Europe Award.
Egis was responsible for site scheduling, management and coordination, as well as for steering of the planning committee in phase 1 of the project. In phases 1 and 2, Egis was tasked with the architectural surveys, the preparation, filing and monitoring of the building permit applications, as well as the engineering, procurement and construction for the design and implementation of non-roads and utilities.
