Drivegreen’s equipment, technology supports nation in reducing emissions

Drivegreen, Sri Lanka’s leading-edge emission testing network, is leading the way in increasing the cleanliness of the environment and ensuring the vehicle emission programme continues to meet the government’s air quality standards.

The Drivegreen initiative which is managed under CleanCo Lanka Ltd, commenced operations in 2008 and is powered by state-of-the-art equipment, internationally recognised certifications and staff who are proficient, dedicated and responsive.

Initially, Drivegreen began its testing programme with Environmental Systems Products (ESP), a leader in vehicle emissions testing equipment and services. Since its inception, Drivegreen has continuously invested in best-in-class testing equipment using ultra-accurate Zero Class, the highest standard in testing equipment in all Drivegreen centres.

Drivegreen commissioned CAPELEC, a French-based manufacturer recognised as the most innovative brand in the world and leading supplier of the European Union. CAPELEC is renowned for producing the next generation of technological solutions supported by a state-of-the-art research and development unit offering technical solutions for improved user safety, and an environmentally responsible approach.

The use of such products enables Drivegreen to meet Government air quality standards in addition to continuously keeping abreast with global innovation.

Commenting on the technology Surendara Perera, Deputy General Manager - Operations, CleanCo Lanka Ltd, said “All systems and machines are computerized and human interaction is very minimal. Our use of advanced technology ensures the results are achieved automatically and the final vehicle emission test result cannot be changed under any circumstance.”

Maintaining transparency of the project, all online vehicle emission testing data is transferred to government authorized bodies for the speedy issuance of the e-revenue license for motorists.

Demonstrating Drivegreen’s pioneering use of equipment and processes to the highest quality, it was awarded the Vehicle Emission Testing - Special Certification ISO-IEC 17020: 2012 in 2016 by the Sri Lanka Accreditation Board (SLAB), the first company to have achieved this.

This prestigious international standard certification honours Drivegreen’s alignment and formal recognition to manage and enhance its quality of inspection, implementing controls to reduce inefficiencies, the smooth flow of activities throughout the testing process inclusive of equipment, structures and systems meeting the required specifications.

Importantly all Drivegreen’s 100 larger inspection stations are all ISO compliant providing a further pledge to customers that the accredited inspection and testing offers a technically competent service, consistently reliable results, reducing costs and lowering risks.

Understanding the importance of improving business processes, and meeting customer demands, Drivegreen have initiated a comprehensive training programme for all staff. As Drivegreen continuously strives to enhance the technical skills of all their employees, a modern training center in Kesbewa has been set-up.

Drivegreen’s strong partnership with Vocational Training Authority has ensured that the Training Center is approved and certified by the Tertiary and Vocational Education Commission.
