The battery cell manufacturer SVOLT Energy Technology, which emerged from the Chinese car manufacturer Great Wall, plans to build global production capacities totalling 100 GWh by 2025 and is also planning a factory in Europe.

For the construction of the European plant the exact location still has to be determined, but construction is scheduled to start in the second half of 2020 and be completed in 2022. General Manager Yang Hongxin told the news agency that it would deliver an output of 20 GWh at launch. A research centre is also planned at the same location.

The plant’s first customer will probably be Great Wall Motor itself, but SVOLT is also in talks with “German and French car manufacturers”. The investment will amount to around two billion euros, Yang said. Part of it – around one billion yuan or 145 million dollars – is to be collected this year in the USA as part of a financing round.
