American automaker Ford's latest and greatest production line over at the Dagenham Diesel Centre is capable of producing automotive engines in a highly efficient manner by managing to cut down on the use of both energy as well as water by as much as 50 percent.

Located in the UK, the Dagenham Diesel Centre is Ford's biggest diesel engine manufacturing facility. The centre's new production line is efficient thanks to its use of fine oil mists to clean and lubricate machines rather than using coolant, something which results in 99.8 percent less use of water.

The use of LED lighting installations is just one of many measures that manages to save on up to 750,000 Kilowatt-hours of energy a year.

Ultimately, this Diesel Centre speaks to Ford's seriousness when it comes to producing engines efficiently and in an eco-friendly manner.
