Energianvändning på Volvo Lastvagnar Tuve
Halmstad University, School of Business and Engineering (SET).
2007 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [sv]

Volvo Trucks is the second largest manufacturer of heavy trucks, with factories in several countries and with around 21 000 employees. At the plant in Tuve, trucks have been built since 1982 and the activity mainly consists of producing side members and to assemble and packing kits of trucks.

In 2005, the factory in Tuve launched the ambition to be the first carbon dioxide neutral vehicle factory in the world. This will be implemented by streamlining and investing in renewable energy.

The aim of this degree thesis is to map the usage of energy within production, and also to prepare a method to measure key figures (use of energy per produced unit). The purpose with the thesis is to make it possible to measure and analyze performed energy saving measurements, and to identify areas within production where there is potential to save energy. The report also considers proposals for energy saving measurements in both production and in the factory in general.

It appears that the assembly of trucks represented a tiny part of the total usage of energy in the factory, while the process of side member production and application of rust protection used the most energy.

The thesis gives proposals for four methods to key figures measurements. These are connected only to the assembly part of the factory, and the difference between the methods depends on the way of measure the heat consumption.

Key words

Use of energy, mapping/survey, key figures, streamlining use of energy
