Intertek has become one of the first facilities in Europe credited to perform power certification testing on eMotors. This enables the company to provide type approval testing for petrol, diesel and now electric vehicle engines, too.

The UK’s type approval authority, VCA, credited Intertek Milton Keynes to perform type approval testing to ECE Regulation 85 power certification on electric motors.

The company is also developing its on-road emissions testing capability using PEMS equipment as well as offering a wide range of services including materials testing, polymer and interior trim testing and vehicle fleet trials services.

Tony Braddon, MD, Intertek Transportation Technologies Milton Keynes, said, “Intertek recognizes that the automotive industry is moving into a high-tech future where the use of internal combustion engines is being augmented and in many cases superseded by hybrid technology, batteries and electric motors.

To best support our manufacturing clients with comprehensive development and certification services, we have responded swiftly to changing regulations and are leading the market in extending our type approval capability from petrol and diesel to include electric motors, too.”
