Almeria

Almeria

The CEMA testing centre is located in southern Spain. It spans 4,500 hectares at the foot of the volcanic La Sierra de Gata mountains and stretches into the Cabo de Gata natural park.


With sunshine in winter and high temperatures from May to October, the unique Andalusian climate means that the tracks at CEMA, the Centro de Experiencias Michelin Almería, can be used 24/7 year-round for tests in extreme conditions on all types of vehicles, from cars to earthmovers, trucks, ATVs, motorcycles, and more.

The different track surfaces - asphalt, off-road, dust and gravel – are designed to meet your needs for tests including airtightness, corrosion, endurance, vibration, noise, handling and component testing.

The site also offers fully equipped workshops, air conditioned offices and meeting rooms with ADSL and WiFi, weather stations, and washing and fuel facilities to make your time at CEMA both practical and comfortable.
