FEV North America s 26,000-square-foot vehicle testing facility in Auburn Hills, Mich. DETROIT Higher emission standards faced by its North American customers have prompted FEV to invest $15 million in a Detroit-area vehicle development center. The expansion also was triggered by a shortage of available testing space at other companies, according to FEV. FEV North America, the U.S. unit of German engineering and testing firm FEV Group, has long performed vehicle testing services in the Detroit area. But new standards are requiring more intensive testing capabilities. The company wants to offer a full set of testing services to U.S. automakers. FEV has a powertrain center and a vehicle lab nearby but was lacking the emission measurement equipment to handle new requirements. Photo Tomazic: "Really strong need" "That's why we decided to build our vehicle testing facility," Dean Tomazic, FEV chief technical officer, said during a media tour at the Auburn Hills, Mich., center. The 26,000-square-foot building can also handle benchmarking, fuels research, climatic testing and electric range development, among other functions. "It's one-stop shopping," Tomazic said. "We don't have to go anywhere else. We do everything in house. We can do it quicker and reduce the cost to our customers, rather than going to third parties, incurring additional shipment costs and increasing time frame." The company said that meeting future regulations for gasoline and diesel vehicles will require automakers to validate vehicle emissions to a Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle Level or Euro 5/6. In addition to testing at that level, the center will be able to evaluate emissions in particulate matter and formaldehydes. The center can control operational temperatures ranging from minus 20 to 40 degrees Celsius (minus 4 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit), allowing customers to test propulsion systems in a wide set of conditions. "In the past, we were outsourcing all of Read more.
