Sakor Technologies, a specialist in high-performance dynamometer systems, has entered a new partnership with SAJ Test Plant Private.
Puna, India-based SAJ is a pioneer in designing and manufacturing eddy current and hydraulic dynamometers for engine, vehicle, and transmission test rigs and customized special test rigs.
The partnership will see it serve as the exclusive representative of Sakor products, among them the AccuDyne AC dynamometer system, DynoLAB test cell control system and other products for hybrid and electric vehicle testing and high-voltage battery testing and simulation.
The partnership will enable both companies to supply the test equipment required to meet a recent Indian government mandate that called for the electrifying of a large majority of vehicle fleets by 2030, to reduce pollution from gasoline and diesel engines.
“Our new partnership is a great way for both companies to attack challenges together that would be difficult to handle separately,” said Randal Beattie, president of Sakor. “The combined capabilities of the two businesses will enable us to service the new market for hybrid and electric vehicles in India over the next decade and beyond, helping to bring the government mandate into fruition. We were extremely pleased with the high level of interest in our expertise and products shown by the largest auto manufacturers in India.”
