Fluor wins engineering contract for industrial-scale sodium-ion battery plant

US-based engineering construction company Fluor has announced that its Advanced Technologies & Life Sciences business line has been selected by Swedish sodium-ion battery manufacturer Altris to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for an industrial-scale sodium-ion battery production facility in Sandviken, Sweden.

Altris is a Swedish sodium-ion battery maker that develops cathodes, electrolytes, battery cells and the industrialization process for these products. Sodium-ion batteries are safe and easy to recycle because they are mainly made of salt, wood, iron and air, Fluor said. The project will be managed from Fluor’s Farnborough, England office. FEED completion is scheduled for early 2024.

“This is a major step forward in battery evolution and the energy transition journey,” said Richard Meserole, President of Fluor’s Advanced Technologies & Life Sciences business line. “Altris turned to Fluor to help them bring this technology to market that will transform manufacturing to be safer and more sustainable.”
