The solution

Northvolt is building a next generation lithium-ion battery factory under a new concept that focuses on scale, vertical integration and highly controlled manufacturing. The execution is fundamentally different to current battery production facilities, with the aim of creating a circular supply system and using clean energy in production. The factory has a capacity of 125 MWh/year (demo line and research facility) to 32 GWh/year (main production site), with a high level of automation.
