The Emitech Group has just acquired Vitesco Technologies’ technical centre in Osny. This new test centre reinforces the Emitech Group’s testing capabilities, in particular for the validation of all vehicle technologies and more specifically its powertrain.
With its development experts, its 3 engine test benches, its climate chamber and its emission chassis dyno for measuring regulated pollutants up to Euro 6d Full, this new site reinforces and completes the group’s expertise in powertrains, whether thermal, hybrid or electric.
Thus, in the Emitech Group, the Achères, Bosroumois and now Osny sites, all near Paris, concentrate the Group’s powertrain activities under the EMC banner.
This acquisition is only a starting point, as the Emitech Group is investing several million euros to ensure the development of test facilities for testing batteries, electric motors and their electronics, as well as hydrogen fuel technologies. Lastly, the vehicle chassis dyno will be upgraded to enable it to measure vehicles that are compatible with the Euro 7 standard, in advance of the regulations that will be coming into force by 2025.
With an electrical power of 2x800kVA, a technical centre of more than 1000m2 and a 6000m2 ground, the Osny site is an ideal base for the development of the batteries and electric motorisation activities within the Group.
Supporting our customers in their mobility solutions that respect the energy transition is a strategic area of investment for the Emitech Group. This is translated by skills increasingly linked to vehicle synthesis. Thus, the Emitech Group has 4 complementary roller test benches: climatic roller bench, acoustic roller bench, electromagnetic compatibility roller bench, emission roller bench – the latter being located on the Osny site.
These skills and expertise are initially aimed at the automotive industry, but extend to all road vehicles, as well as the railway, marine, energy and aeronautics sectors.
