Millbrook has been awarded an extension to its contract with Transport for London (TfL) in the UK to cover bus emissions and analysis testing.
The agreement continues a long-standing relationship between the two companies, with Millbrook entrusted with the responsibility for the testing of bus emissions and other aspects including noise, acceleration and stability. Millbrook has state-of-the-art emissions laboratories capable of testing exhaust emissions and fuel consumption analysis of double decker buses.
Working with TfL led to the development of the Millbrook London Transport Bus Cycle, which is used to evaluate all buses purchased on behalf of the authority. This test criteria, and the restrictions on pollution within London, has driven manufacturers to adopt new technologies that deliver tangible benefits to public health such as CO₂ reductions, and improved fuel consumption, and which strengthen the UK bus industry.
Millbrook’s powertrain facilities are capable of testing vehicles in temperature-controlled conditions from -30°C up to 50°C, and in compliance to Euro VI legislation, providing results for HC, CO, NOx, NO, NO₂, N2O, PM and PN.
Visit Millbrook at Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2016, which takes place at Messe Stuttgart, Germany, on May 31-June 2. Millbrook will be at stand 1340.
