The Northvolt Battery Factory
På svenska. So…done deal, right? Sort of. It’s going to take a while.
Upon completion, Northvolt Ett will be Europe’s largest battery factory, producing lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles and energy storage.
So, it should come as no surprise that Northvolt Ett is a work in progress, even if some parts of the factory have been working full tilt for several years.
This is no ordinary battery factory: at Northvolt Ett, circularity has been a part of the process from the start.
Skellefteå Kraft was decisive in enabling rapid establishment of the battery factory. We did so by, for example, providing land, electrical networks, district heating, cooling water, steam, fibre connections and waste-heat facilities.
Today, Skellefteå Kraft is one of the company’s shareholders.
We need more accessible batteries.
The factory may be operational in some areas, but that does not mean we’re finished. Skellefteå Kraft continues to work with the delivery of renewable power, as in the manufacture of battery cells.
Renewable processes are also implemented across all areas of production. Recycled batteries are used to create new ones while innovative technologies make batteries cheaper and even more accessible.
In the transition to a 100%-renewable energy system, every effort counts.
