Millbrook Group, a UK-based independent vehicle testing and validation services provider, has announced it has been designated to provide real driving emissions (RDE) testing on behalf of Dutch approval authority, RDW.
Significant investment in its powertrain department has enabled Millbrook to develop its emissions-testing capabilities, which include accurate RDE data capture through the latest portable emissions measurement systems (PEMS).
RDW is the Dutch approval authority for the automotive industry, acting as an independent global partner to automotive manufacturers. Under RDW approval, Millbrook is able to perform testing procedures for RDE certification. The two companies have a long-standing relationship, with Millbrook a Category A technical service provider to RDW for 715/2007 emissions.
“Our emissions testing capabilities are constantly being upgraded, and we have the latest equipment for both lab-based and real world testing,” said Tony Soper, principal engineer – Homologation. “The increasing focus globally on air quality and vehicle emissions is driving improvements in testing procedures, and Millbrook is always pushing to deliver services up to and beyond those dictated by European and global regulations.”
