Greentech Lead Australia: Nissan Australia announced that
the first batch of Australian-made components for
Nissan electric vehicles has been exported to Japan. The
aluminum components include the inverter case, inverter water jacket and water
jacket cover for electric vehicles was made at the Nissan Casting Australia
Plant (NCAP) in Dandenong, Victoria.

“These electric vehicle parts are part of more than two
million components and accessories made at the Nissan Casting Plant each year,
contributing to the overall growth of success of Nissan both in Australia and
globally,” said Nissan Australia CEO William F Peffer Jr.

Nissan has awarded global manufacturing contracts to
NCAP last year. With these contracts, NCAP is expected to produce $160m in
export revenue. The contracts were secured with the support of the Federal
Green Car Innovation Fund and funding from the Victorian Government’s
Business Assistance Grant.

NCAP has partnered with the CSIRO and the Centre for
Applied Special Technology (CAST) Co-operative Research Centre (CRC) for the
development of new casting technologies for the components.

Nissan plans to invest a total of $21m in its
sustainable, zero emission technology manufacturing operation to
support its Dandenong plant.
