Northvolt is coming to Canada

We are establishing a new gigafactory – Northvolt Six – in Montreal, Canada. It will host facilities for cell manufacturing and cathode active material production.

The facility will also feature a recycling plant enabling the recovery of metals from end-of-life batteries and scrap, for use in the production of new cathode active material.

Construction of the first phase of the project is expected to begin in the fall of 2023 and the first operations are set to commence in 2026.

Is it dangerous to work in battery cell production?

As in all production environments, there are risks. In battery cell production there are various chemicals and materials that require special training in handling and storage, as well as special protective equipment. As part of your initial training, we’ll introduce you to all of this, and thereafter provide ongoing opportunities to expand your skills and experiences to prepare you for growing into more senior roles.

What is the factory environment like?

Production of battery materials and cells requires highly controlled environments in order to assure high-quality products. Therefore, it’s important that much of the cell production process takes place in clean & dry rooms – environments that limit dirt and particles and are temperature and humidity controlled. Working in a clean & dry room is similar to working in a lab environment, and it requires specific training and protective clothing. For other parts of the production, regular personal protective equipment is enough.
