Groupe Renault “advanced lighthouse” for industry 4.0
On July 3, at the summit held in Dalian, China, the World Economic Forum recognized the Renault Cléon plant (Seine-Maritime, France) as an “advanced lighthouse” for industry 4.0, gratifying the Groupe Renault's commitment to a human, digital and connected industry of the future.
It is the first automotive industrial site to be recognized in France with this Label.
At the heart of the digital transformation of Renault Group plants, Cléon has equipped all 57 hectares of buildings with Wi-Fi, enabling data to be gathered and fully automated processes such as full kitting or parts traceability to be implemented.
This plant, which produced 760,000 engines and 372,000 gearboxes in 2018 and which has just celebrated its 60th anniversary, has been transformed into a recognized 4.0 plant, with several digital use cases such as connected workforce, virtual reality training and automated truck flow management.
Already ranked among the best plants in the world by specialized agencies, the Cleon plant has created a local ecosystem while developing innovations that will be deployed around the world.
