Engine test investment enables Millbrook to support high-end engine calibration

0

A new multi-million pound investment in the engine test cells at Millbrook Proving Ground in the UK will greatly strengthen the facility’s capabilities. The move is in response to strong customer demand and is part of a continued program of investment.

As part of the program, a new 550kW high dynamic engine dyno together with a 370kW high dynamic engine dyno will be installed. The investment will also go toward further emissions benches, combustion analysis equipment, high accuracy fuel measurement, upgrades to combustion air handling for larger engine and better accuracy, CAMEO and dSPACE calibration software packages, and various other supporting items. The investment will enable a higher volume of testing and an increase in capacity for testing high-end engines.

Phil Stones, chief engineer powertrain at Millbrook, said, “This further investment enables us to improve our ability to test a wider variety of engines, together with having a much higher engine calibration and development focus. The investment has received strong support from our current customers and we also expect to welcome additional customers onto the site in the coming months.”
