5 February, 2018
The Swedish Energy Agency today announced it will support the establishment of Northvolt’s demonstration line, Northvolt Labs, in Västerås, Sweden, with a grant up to SEK 146 million.
Northvolt Labs, which in addition to the demonstration line also will include a research facility, will be used to qualify and industrialize products and processes together with Northvolt’s partners and customers. The launch of Northvolt Labs is a key step towards the establishment of Northvolt’s large-scale lithium-ion battery factory in Skellefteå, Sweden, which will serve as the main production site and include active material preparation, cell assembly, recycling and auxiliaries.
