Today, TÜV SÜD Group (hereinafter referred to as "TÜV SÜD") Changzhou New Energy Vehicle Testing Laboratory was officially opened to boost the development of Chinese new energy vehicle industry, improve the quality of Chinese new energy vehicle EV battery, and better protect the driving safety of consumers.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Axel Stepken, Chairman of the Board of Management of TÜV SÜD, Mr. Dirk von Wahl, CEO, North Asia of TÜV SÜD, Mr. Hailiang Xu, Managing Director of TÜV SÜD Changzhou New Energy Vehicle Testing Laboratory, Mr. Liu Yong, Secretary General, the Energy Storage Applications Branch of China Industrial Association of Power Sources, Mr. Lu Zaigui, Chief of Industry Transformation and Upgrade Section from Industry and Information Technology Department of Jiangsu, Mr. Li Lin, Deputy Mayor of a Changzhou Municipality, Secretary of CPC in Wujin District Committee, and Secretary of the Party Working committee in Wujin National Hi-tech Zone, attended the opening ceremony and unveiled TÜV SÜD Changzhou new energy vehicle testing laboratory. The establishment of the laboratory aims to meet the needs of new energy vehicle enterprises, EV battery and battery components production in the Yangtze River Delta and nationwide, as well as the research and development testing, quality assessment and export certification of enterprises, comprehensively guarantee the safety of EV battery, and assist in regulating market order.
Nowadays, the development of Chinese EV battery industry is about to enter a new stage of rapid development. The safe, long-life and high performance energy EV battery will become the mainstream of industrial demand, and the demand of EV battery inspection will continue to grow.
In order to meet the growing demand of EV battery quality testing and R & D testing, ensure the safety of EV battery in an all-round way, TÜV SÜD strives to build Changzhou new energy vehicle testing laboratory and provide professional one-stop testing and certification services for new energy vehicle manufacturers. The laboratory covers an area of 6,000 square meters, equipped with advanced large-scale vibration table, safety testing and explosion-proof room, high-precision and high-power charging and discharging devices, air purification and other facilities as well as complete fire-fighting facilities.
The laboratory is mainly divided into three platforms: battery performance testing and evaluation, environmental reliability testing and evaluation, and safety abuse testing and evaluation. Its testing capability covers EV battery unit, module, pack (battery pack) and various products at system level, which can meet several international standards and Chinese national standards. As one of the laboratories in China that has set up a EV battery safety testing room with scientific design, perfect configuration and safety and environmental protection, the laboratory can cover high-power battery system, and the single channel of imported high-precision charging and discharging equipment can meet the test requirements of 1200V/1200A battery pack. Based on the understanding of "V-model" product development, TÜV SÜD Changzhou new energy vehicle testing laboratory implements supplementary construction per German technical requirements, comprehensively supports customized projects required by industry and enterprise research and development, and conducts comprehensive EV battery test evaluation and analysis covering the full life cycle.
The establishment of the laboratory marks another implementation and promotion milestone of the development plan of TÜV SÜD's new energy vehicle testing laboratory in China. "As the world's leading third-party testing and inspection organization, TÜV SÜD is committed to continuous technological innovation and always provides quality, safety and sustainable high-quality solutions for enterprises and consumers." Xu Hailiang, Managing Director of TÜV SÜD new energy vehicle testing (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd., said, "I believe that the newly built new energy vehicle testing laboratory will provide more customers with high-quality services, meet the industry demand, ensure the safe driving of new energy vehicles, and assist the orderly and healthy development of Chinese new energy vehicle industry."
In face of the fast development of new energy vehicle market, TÜV SÜD has been concentrating on and actively solving industrial problems, highlighting the safety and quality of EV battery, and providing international and domestic one-stop inspection and certification services for enterprises based on independence, fairness and professionalism.
The newly opened Changzhou New Energy Vehicle Testing Laboratory is the world's third laboratory of TÜV SÜD which covering monomer, module and system full test project (safety, environment, performance and abuse) after Germany and Canada. It is also the largest invested power battery testing base of TÜV SÜD in the world. In the future, TÜV SÜD will continue to explore the Chinese market, promote the comprehensive development plan of Chinese new energy vehicle testing laboratory, assist Chinse new energy vehicle enterprises improve their competitiveness domestic and overseas, improve the safety and performance of the EV battery, and guarantee the safe driving of more consumers.
