Mahle Powertrain begins construction of new RDE Centre

Mahle Powertrain has begun the next expansion phase of its Northampton site with the construction of a new Real Driving Emissions Centre (RDEC).

Scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2018, the RDEC will incorporate Mahle Powertrain’s new 4WD chassis dynamometer and full emissions equipment, enabling testing to all worldwide standards, including the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) procedure. The centre will enhance Mahle Powertrain’s RDE expertise, allowing its Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) approved RDE test routes to be used to their full potential, as well as having the capability to simulate them in the chamber. This new facility will extend Mahle Powertrain’s capabilities for the delivery of complete RDE testing services from on-the-road PEMS through to dyno-based road simulations and comprehensive vehicle emissions testing.

Derek Wise, chief engineer (build & test), Mahle Powertrain, said: "The new centre will put us at the forefront of real driving emissions testing and allow us to offer a wider range of services to our existing and new customers."

The new test centre forms a key part of Mahle Powertrain’s multi-million GBP investment in its UK operations. As well as the increased testing capabilities, the RDE Centre will also provide a new reception with display area for Mahle Powertrain’s projects and customer meeting rooms with conference facilities. In the US, Mahle Powertrain has also recently acquired a new test centre in Plymouth, Michigan as part of a multi-million USD North American expansion. This plan begins with investment in emissions equipment to support EPA 1066 compliance for vehicle based emissions testing on the existing 4WD chassis dynamometer.
