The Japanese multinational chooses Cabycal to remodel and modernise the facilities at its plant in Barcelona

Valencia, 4th October 2018.- Cabycal has designed, manufactured and installed a new room for pumping and distributing paints for the P2 body painting line of NMISA (Nissan Motor Ibérica S. A.) located in the Zona Franca of Barcelona. NMISA has relied on Cabycal to carry out these works, which are part of its interannual plan for the renovation and continuous improvement of its facilities.

The room for pumping and distributing paints or Minicirculating Room of Bases in P2 will improve and normalise the safety and work conditions in these facilities that have been operating for more than 30 years. This room meets the strictest hygiene and safety requirements, both for people and for the environment.

The design of the mixing room also includes the air conditioning system necessary to maintain the paints in optimal and adequate conditions and thus maximize the qualities obtained in the coating process of the bodies. The implemented system is able to achieve an accuracy of +/- 1ºC and +/- 3% relative humidity of variability with respect to the set point. These values ​​are achieved thanks to a heat exchanger / recuperator of slats that produces an important energy saving what allows a reduction of production costs.

The design of the mixing room has been audited under the strictest safety and health standards and certified by an external company authorized and assigned by Nissan. The package of certifications includes measurements of electrical earth, residual static, performance of fire-fighting systems, volatile organic compounds emitted into the atmosphere and energy certification (in consumption inherent to air conditioning in the room).

NMISA is part of a corporation, which includes Nissan, Renault and Mitsubishi mainly. Nissan has five production centers in Spain - located in Barcelona, ​​Ávila and Cantabria -, where it manufactures the Nissan Pulsar passenger car, the NV200 van and its 100% electric version e-NV200, the new Navara pick-up and the light truck NT400 / Cabstar.
