FEV expands Alsdorf location to include modern testing center with climatic emissions rollers
Aachen, May 2018 – On May 28, a groundbreaking ceremony for FEV’s new testing center in Alsdorf took place. The state-of-the-art facility will be next to the existing FEV buildings on Konrad-Zuse-Straße and will allow emissions and range tests to be performed to meet the latest worldwide legal standards.
“Further reduction of emissions and consumption is becoming increasingly important for our customers in light of current social discussions and regulation of future consumption targets. This investment at the Alsdorf location takes into account the development of clean and highly efficient drive systems,” explains Professor Stefan Pischinger, President and CEO of the FEV Group.
At the same time, the construction project shows a clear commitment to the Aachen region where the company has had its roots since being founded 40 years ago.
Forward-Looking Test Conditions
The new building will have a four-wheeled chassis dynamometer with state-of-the-art emissions technology for performing emissions tests in accordance with the latest legislation from the US, Europe, China, Japan, and India. In addition to the measuring and testing equipment required to optimize conventional powertrains, the testing center is designed for developing hybrid and electric vehicles. The vehicle conditioning area is approximately 1,700 square meters (around 18,300 square feet) and is divided into three different temperature ranges for conditioning, from -30°C to 50°C (-22°F to 122°F). The overall building layout is optimized for roller and PEMS test operations and will also allow an additional test bench and solar simulation system to be added in the future.
In addition, the expansion will involve doubling the Parc Fermé for test vehicles by an additional 200 spaces. There will also be charging stations for battery electric vehicles (BEV) and off-vehicle charging, hybrid electric vehicles (OVC-HEV).
