Northvolt AB

Northvolt AB

Northvolt is a supplier of sustainable, high-quality battery cells and systems and was founded with the mission to build the world´s greenest battery.

Northvolt introducing a new concept inspired by the semiconductor industry, focusing on; scale, customized customer solutions, vertical integration and highly controlled manufacturing. The execution is fundamentally different compared to current battery production facilities.

Northvolt is dedicated to create a circular system, and has the highest ambitions regarding life cycle management: their approach covers cradle to grave. Building the factory in the Nordic region, given its carbon free power base, will enable us to rely on fossil free energy.

Northvolt´s first large-scale battery factory will be established in Skellefteå in Northern Sweden. The factory, Northvolt Ett, will serve as the main production site and the first part of the factory will be completed in 2020 and it will be expanded gradually until full capacity of 32 GWh is reached. Northvolt industrial partners and customers are ABB, BMW Group, Scania, Siemens, Vattenfall, Vestas and the Volkswagen Group.

In Västerås, Northvolt has established, Northvolt Labs. Northvolt Labs is a demonstration line, which includes a research facility, that is used to qualify and industrialize products and processes together with Northvolt’s partners and customers. Northvolt Labs is a key step towards the establishment of Northvolt’s large-scale lithium-ion battery factory in Skellefteå, which will serve as the main production site and include active material preparation, cell assembly, recycling and auxiliaries.

In addition to the gigafactory in Sweden, Volkswagen and Northvolt plan to set up a 50/50 joint venture to establish a 16 GWh battery cell factory with an intended location in Salzgitter, Lower Saxony, Germany.

Since its official launch in March 2017, Northvolt has grown from 12 to almost 300 people, and now employs over 45 different nationalities from companies such as Tesla, Daimler, LG Chem, Panasonic, Spotify and Google. In 2018, Northvolt delivered its first product – a battery pack – to Epiroc’s fleet of underground mining machines, as well as produced its first battery cell.
