Intertek expands service offerings at North American EV testing lab

Intertek, a Total Quality Assurance provider to industrial firms, has expanded the services on offer at its lab in Plymouth, Michigan in order to “meet the auto industry’s increasing demand for safe and reliable testing for evolving EV and EVSE technologies.

The company says its Plymouth facility offers “some of the most extensive EV battery and EVSE testing capabilities in North America to assist automotive OEM and tier suppliers.”

The facility’s footprint has been doubled, to 200,000 square feet.

Testing capabilities and equipment include:

  • A 55,000 pound-force shaker for use with large  EV component testing
  • Battery cycler capability to 1, 200 V/600 kW
  • A new EVSE emulator for IEC 61851-24 certifications
  • Multiple reach-in and walk-in environmental chambers
  • Specific areas for salt, dust, and BSR testing

“Advances in electrification technologies in the automotive industry and the accelerated global adoption of EVs have led to an increase in both industry vehicle development and consumer demand,” said Gavin Campbell, President, Intertek Transportation Technologies. “As an early adopter of and pioneer in EV testing, Intertek’s continued investment in the Plymouth location to bring in additional state-of-the-art equipment and innovate our offerings underscores our commitment to deliver best-in-class testing and certification services to our automotive customers as their needs evolve.”
