Hungry for challenges? Join a group with innovation at its heart and contribute to the automotive revolution!
With 31,000 team members located in 26 countries and a 2017 revenue of €8 billion, Plastic Omnium is world leader in intelligent exterior systems, clean energy systems and front-end modules.
Plastic fuel tank systems present the perfect combination of safety, cost and weight performance. They also represent an ideal solution to support the development of hybrid vehicles. Plastic Omnium offers solutions adapted for all kinds of engines.
Our ambition? Provide automakers with cutting-edge equipment and solutions to develop tomorrow’s clean and connected car.
PLASTIC OMNIUM Auto Inergy division develops fuel and SCR systems for different worldwide OEMs - customers.
Refilling is a key function of fuel systems: the customer must be able to refilling the tank of his vehicle in a trouble-free and safe way.
Integration in car environment is one of the main challenges of Refilling function; measuring Key Dimensions based on Design Rules is the best way to identify and manage filling risks, in order to keep development costs and customer satisfaction under control.
To improve comfort and limit air pollution, emissions during refueling are submitted to different regulations; the most effective is On-board Refueling Vapor Recovery (ORVR). Plastic Omnium aims at improving the efficiency of this technology by improving continuously design rules and validating them by simulation and tests on mock-up parts.
The main objectives of this internship is provide 2 database that will support Risk analysis for filling and define better Design Rules to ensure proper management of emission during refueling (ORVR)
The activity will therefore consist of:
Based on progress and workload of this activity, secondary activities may be added (ex: investigation of air entrapment during refilling process: simulation and lab tests).
The trainee will be integrated in the Product Development support team in our technical center α-Alphatech (60).
