Can a modern engine plant, beehives, electric vehicles and a water management act go together? In Győr, Hungary, they certainly can. There, for Leadec at Audi Hungaria, much revolves around sustainable production and environmental protection.
Anyone who wants to get from A to B on the Audi Hungaria plant premises in Győr should either be good on foot or otherwise mobile. More than 5 square kilometers – equivalent to an area of over 700 soccer fields – covers the area where around 2 million engines per year have been built since 1993. The company in Győr has already been mass-producing the electric motor of the e-tron, Audi’s first all-electric model, since 2018. By the end of 2020, exactly 187,163 electric drives had left the plant. The electric motors for the “Premium Platform Electric (PPE)” vehicles developed jointly with Porsche will also be produced in Győr in the future. To ensure that everything runs smoothly, around 300 Leadec employees have been working at the site for almost 27 years, taking care of the energy supply and technical facility management.
