Since 2008, FEV Europe GmbH has been successfully conducting electric and thermal endurance tests on battery cells, modules, and packs for clients around the world at its Trappes Test Center in France. Furthermore, in Aachen (Germany) FEV has additional cell and pack testing benches for everything related to both predevelopment and innovation. In the field of battery cells, a broad range of cell test channels are available at EVA Fahrzeugtechnik GmbH in Munich as well as FEV UK in England. Aachen, England, and Munich mainly focus on development tests, while France primarily focuses on endurance tests.
Due to the steadily increasing demand for high-voltage battery tests in recent years, the FEV Group decided in 2019 to set up another test facility where all development and validation tests required by the industry could be carried out under one roof. That is how the company came to begin building the world’s largest and most modern test center for various types of battery modules and high-voltage batteries. Almost all types of electrical tests (both performance and endurance), environmental, mechanical, safety, and abuse tests will be offered in approximately 12,000 m² of building space.
In 2 weeks from today – on September 25, 2020 – the eDLP will be officially opened.
