Crash testing

The Kistler Group has won a £12 million sterling contract to supply instrumentation for three new crash test facilities to be built in India. Their bid won against strong global competition on both technical and cost grounds.

Rapid expansion of the Indian automobile industry in both domestic and international markets has created a need for modern crash test facilities to meet international environmental and safety standards. Building modern crash test centres in Delhi, Pune and Chennai will be the responsibility of the National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project (NATRIP), an autonomous project set up by the Indian Government within the Department of Heavy Industries. The crash test centres will be built and equipped over the next eighteen months.

“Our acquisition of MSC Automotive, Corrsys-Datron and KT Automotive last year has given Kistler the capability to bid for major international instrumentation contracts,” said Kistler group CEO, Rolf Sonderegger, “We are now shaping ourselves into a systems partner of the automotive industry able to provide a single source of instrumentation solutions and services.”
