Heavy Duty Tractor Dyno Cell

Project Summary

Heavy-Duty Chassis Dynamometer Test site is a unique 10,000-square-foot expansion to the NVFEL laboratory, which will allow EPA to test the largest buses and semi-tractors for fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions.  The ground up facility was a challenging project with project footprint location and poor soils.  The major scopes of work involved earth retention, concrete, structural steel, mechanical equipment & controls, electrical systems, insulated metal panel siding, and architectural glazing.  This project was a huge success and very rewarding with it being one of only a few tractor dynamometer test sites in the world
