We develop the testing industry
To be the obvious test region for global actors focusing on mobility in sustainable societies.
Swedish Lapland is known for state-of-the-art winter testing.
Every year, manufacturers of vehicles, systems, components and tyres from all over the world benefit from the region's excellent testing facilities. Thousands of vehicles are tested annually and the number of overnight stays is well over 100 000.
You can benefit from more than 50 different test sites and labs. The winter test region defines the area from arctic conditions in the high mountains to a four-season testing perspective and year-round testing activities, including the coastal region with indoor testing facilities. For specific test orders, we recommend direct contact with one of our members, but the SPGA can of course also help you find the right provider if you want to find your way around the network.
SPGA works to strengthen the test region and test cluster through collaborative projects with various stakeholders, both in the region and globally. Here you will find conditions for winter testing in cold temperatures with lots of snow for several months.
We believe that a four-season context with Nordic winters is the basis for testing the next generation of robust and sustainable products. Here you will find both -40 and +30 ⁰C.
The region has world-class research and development in snow, ice, cold weather and sustainability. We work in close collaboration with institutes and local universities.
With the continued development of vehicle testing expertise and new consultancy services, the winter testing region is growing both in terms of the number of test sites and the impact on regional business.
