Swedish battery developer and manufacturer Northvolt has delivered what is said to be Europe’s largest factory for energy storage solutions.
The firm confirmed last week that it has now finished construction work on the new Northvolt Dwa factory in Gdańsk, Poland.
Commenting on the development, Robert Chryc-Gawrychowski, CEO of Northvolt Poland, said: “The facility is powered solely by electricity from renewable sources.
“This aligns with our company’s business model, which focuses on using only green energy in all our factories located in Poland, Sweden, and Germany, as well as utilising recycled materials.”
The development of factory has been supported by $200m (c.£162m) in funding.
When up and running, the 50,000 sq. m. complex is expected to deliver an initial annual output of 5 GWh, with a potential future capacity of 12 GWh.
The factory is set to begin production by the end of the year; this will coincide with the official opening of the factory.
The factory’s team are set to move into their new offices by the end of the month.
