SGS North America’s transportation division has expanded its service offering at its Rocky Mountain high altitude natural proving ground, with a state-of-the-art new 4,800ft2 user facility.

The SGS Rocky Mountain Testing Center in Empire, Colorado is located at 8,900ft above sea level and features three 50 x 20ft temperature-controlled bays and one dedicated workshop that can accommodate various types of equipment, machinery or vehicles. Each bay is individually keyed and features video surveillance, guest wifi, office areas and private restrooms. In addition each site can reach temperatures as low as -30°C (-22°F) and provide vehicle exhaust ventilation as well as on-site fuel storage. SGS will also provide local engineering and calibration services for cold start and drivability assessments.

Director of operations Anthony Beck noted, “While this facility will support many real world applications, it will also provide the ideal environment to support efforts in reducing emissions on a global basis.”
