China’s largest vehicle maker, First Automotive Works (FAW), is to benefit from turbochargers from turbochargers and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves supplied by BorgWarner.
The components will be installed in various cars and light commercial vehicles manufactured by the Chinese OEM, while BorgWarner’s proven turbocharging technology will be employed on completely newly developed 1.3-liter and 2-liter gasoline engines, which are to be used in the compact and midsize car segment. BorgWarner is also supplying the EGR valve for the 3-liter diesel power unit that FAW installs in its light commercial vehicles. All three engines comply with the European Euro 4 emissions standard.
The newly developed 1.3-liter gasoline engine is equipped with a KP39 turbocharger, while the 2-liter gasoline engine uses a K03 turbocharger. From 2010 onwards, BorgWarner will manufacture the turbochargers in the eastern Chinese city of Ningbo, where the supplier has been operating a production facility since 2004. The EGR valve will also be produced in Ningbo.
“Our application and production capacities directly on location allow us to optimally serve the Chinese market and react very flexibly to FAW’s requirements,” said Roger Wood, president of BorgWarner Turbo and Emissions Systems.
