Real Driving Emissions testing approval at Millbrook
The Millbrook facility for performing real driving emissions testing using portable emission measurement systems gains VCA approval.
The announcement comes after Millbrook was also designated to provide similar services to Dutch authority, RDW, and is as a result of significant investment in Millbrook’s Powertrain department to develop its emissions-testing capabilities. Investment has enhanced Millbrook’s RDE data capture, through the latest portable emissions measurement systems (PEMS) and software.
Millbrook’s approval from the VCA covers testing procedures 2016/646 and 595/2009 on light and heavy duty vehicles respectively. The facilities at the Bedfordshire site are able to cover current, and immediately expected, EU regulations for real driving emissions. VCA has a permanent presence at Millbrook, making the conducting of official, regulated procedures more efficient and saving vehicle manufacturers time when putting their vehicles through official tests.
Phil Stones, Chief Engineer – Powertrain, said: “Having worked closely with the VCA over a number of years, we are now fully equipped to conduct officially recognised type approval tests in a compliant and efficient manner. The continued development of our emissions testing facilities keeps us at the forefront of the industry, delivering testing services up to and beyond those dictated by European and global regulations.”
