New passenger-car diesel engines from the Ford-Peugeot Citroen alliance will require workers to be trained to work in a sterile environment. The common-rail diesel design, requiring all cylinders to be injected with fuel at the same pressure, needs a dirt-free environment to ensure there is no blockages in the fuel lines. It will cost the companies (with help from the U.K. government) $19.1 million to train 2,000 employees with the special skills needed to make the surgical-like plant a success.
