Intertek is to open a European Centre of Excellence for high-voltage EV propulsion systems testing in Milton Keynes, UK. With an already existing powertrain testing laboratory in MK, which has achieved a number of industry firsts, the new facility at a nearby secondary location, with its additional capacity and capabilities, will significantly enhance Intertek’s offering. Equipment will enable testing of motors, inverters, axle modules, all on-board vehicle electrical systems and complete electric vehicle testing. Housed there will be 10 EV powertrain test cells, a complete four-wheel-drive full vehicle climatic test chamber, electric axle module test rigs, three state-of-the-art e-motor dyno rigs operating at speeds up to 27,000rpm, and several specialist e-machine development rigs.
