First process equipment for Northvolt Ett battery gigafactory

Northvolt, Stockholm, Sweden, has announced that the first process equipment for Northvolt Ett battery gigafactory arrived at the port of Skellefteå in northern Sweden. “Of course this is just the beginning – thousands of tons of machinery will arrive through the port as we establish Europe’s first homegrown gigafactory”, the company says.

The European-built equipment delivered today consists of vessels and tanks for installation into the upstream portion of Northvolt Ett, where active material is produced; these are large units – three over 20m long, with two weighing close to 30 tons and a third one weighing in at 44 tons. The equipment will soon be on-site at Northvolt Ett, just 10km from port, for installation.
