PSA Peugeot Citroen’s Trémery Plant in Lorraine, eastern France, has just passed an extraordinary milestone, producing its 25,000,000th engine. The 2nd generation 2.0 litre, 136 bhp HDi diesel engine carries a special commemorative label to celebrate the event.

Established in 1979, the Trémery plant is dedicated to the production of 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, primarily high-pressure common rail HDi diesels. Since 2003, Trémery has produced the 2nd generation 1.6 and 2.0 litre HDi engines that form the cornerstone of the cooperation between PSA Peugeot Citroen and Ford.

PSA Peugeot Citroen and Ford have been working together since 1998 to produce a family of Common Rail diesel engines that also includes 1.4 litre, 1.6 litre and 2.7 litre V6 HDi versions. The 2.7 litre engine is used by Jaguar and powers the Land Rover Discovery, which has just received What Car? magazine’s Car-of-the-Year award.

Last year, the Trémery plant produced 1.85 million engines, of which 1.6 million were diesels. In a normal week, the plant’s staff of 5,000 produces 9,600 engines.
