Polish company Impact Clean Power Technology (Grenevia Group) has unveiled a rendering of its planned GigafactoryX, a large-scale battery factory for EVs and energy storage in Pruszków, near Warsaw.
The facility will produce batteries with maximum dimensions of 1400 mm x 1000 mm x 400 mm and a maximum weight of 500 kg. The production area of GigafactoryX will be 16,300 square meters. The factory will include a battery testing facility and an R&D center.
The factory will produce batteries for various types of electric vehicles, including those for public transportation, such as e-buses, e-trucks, and the rail sector. It will also produce energy storage systems designed for the commercial electricity industry, including for large-scale storage.
The battery systems will use lithium-ion cells with lithium titanate (LTO), lithium iron phosphate (LFP) and nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) chemistries. A 1 MWh energy storage facility is also planned for the PV plant and power grid. The GigafactoryX public transport battery production line is supplied and installed by teamtechnik Production Technology Poland. The first-phase line will produce 16,000 battery systems annually by 2024, up from 2,500 today.
“The effect of the technologies used will be a rapid assembly cycle of a single battery, which will be only 11 minutes,” said Bartek Kras, CEO of Impact. “The first phase of the investment will allow us to increase production capacity to 1.2 GWh per year as early as next year, and in 2027, production will reach 4 GWh per year.”
