UK automotive test facility hosts low carbon event

Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle event to take place this week at the Millbrook vehicle testing grounds in the UK.

Millbrook will once again become the central hub and meeting point for the low carbon technology industry, as it hosts the ninth annual Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV) event on 14th and 15th September. Up to three thousand industry professionals are expected to attend, with the exhibitors set to make use of Millbrook’s unique testing facilities to showcase the latest in low carbon technology.

Millbrook’s tracks, including a constant high speed bowl, city courses and hill routes, are designed to simulate a wide range of driving conditions. Exhibitors will demonstrate their low carbon solutions and product updates. The extensive site allows for significant indoor and outdoor exhibition space and will feature four locations to host the full seminar programme.

Visitors to the Millbrook stand (C3-606) will be able to find out about the Company’s full capabilities in the UK and Finland, across Powertrain, Safety, Vehicle, Tyre, Special Vehicles, and Compliance services. Delegates will also have the opportunity to experience the road testing facilities first hand, with site tours running frequently on both days.

As part of the event’s extensive seminar programme, Millbrook Group President, Alex Burns, will discuss “Matching Drive Cycles and Energy Storage Solutions”. Later in the programme a senior engineer – fuels and lubricants, Liam Kennedy, will be covering “Impact of Traffic on Inner City Driving Cycles, Vehicle Emissions and Fuel Economy”.

To mark the opening of Millbrook’s new crash roll over facility, a live demonstration will take place at lunchtime on the second day of the event. Supplementing the site’s existing capabilities, the corkscrew roll over facility enables customers to test vehicles for roll over protection, detection and occupant ejection. A limited number of delegates will be able to view the test first hand.

Alex Burns, President of Millbrook Group explains: “As the leading independent vehicle test, validation and engineering service provider to customers in the automotive, transport, petrochemical, defence and security industries, Millbrook is the ideal location to host the UK’s number one low carbon vehicle event.

“We are looking forward to exhibiting at LCV2016 and hope that the highly visual element of this year’s stand will prove to be a popular draw for people who may not be aware of the full scale of services we offer here at Millbrook.”
