Performance Test Cell Upgrade

Detroit Diesel - Detroit, MI

As part of the DDC development program for the off-highway engine line, ACS delivered four performance test cells along with corresponding control rooms and a 5,000 sq. ft. mechanical penthouse. The complex renovation was executed in an operating test and production environment and was delivered utilizing a phased work plan to meet the needs of ongoing operations.

Key Performance Features:

  • Mechanical penthouse was built utilizing open space on existing facility roof
  • Maximized existing available space by converting the component test area into a new control room and emissions equipment room
  • Siemens PLC systems installed for testing critical utilities including combustion air, fuel systems, engine coolant, aftercooler, and engine exhaust
