Impact Clean Power Technology has started the construction of a modern battery systems factory – GigafactoryX – for the public transport, railroad sector, and stationary energy storage for both the professional energy sector and individual users. The investment will multiply the company’s production capacity up to 5 GWh per year.
The GigafactoryX project assumes the construction of a giant battery factory for electric vehicles. Power systems will be based on lithium-ion cells in technologies: LTO, LFP and NMC. Construction of the GigafactoryX will involve the employment of approximately 200 new employees. The start of production planned for 2024 will guarantee the security of the supply of battery systems for the world’s largest brands.
“The main goals of our business are safety of transport, respect for the environment and customer trust. We want to further develop the company in the area of new products, as well as diversify our activities and increase production capacity. The decision to start the construction of GigafactoryX confirms our ambitious plans. I am convinced that the construction of this technologically advanced plant will be a strong impulse for the development of the electromobility and renewable energy industry in Poland and worldwide. The GigafactoryX is also the next step in the field of energy production and transformation of public transport and industry, which will consistently reduce CO2 emissions. So far, electric buses powered by batteries from Impact have traveled more than 100 million km, which means carbon dioxide reduction by about 115 million kg of CO2” – says Bartek Kras, CEO and co-founder of Impact Clean Power Technology S.A.
“According to the forecasts of leading companies analyzing the market, we estimate that in the next five years the growth of demand for battery systems in Europe will be maintained at a double-digit level. Such a significant increase in production capacity will allow us to maintain our position as a leading manufacturer of e-mobility solutions for public transport and industry. For our customers, the GigafactoryX is a guarantee of large order volumes, availability of service and on-time delivery based on the European supply chain”, comments Filip Jankun, sales director at Impact Clean Power Technology S.A.
The new production lines will be highly automated, which will affect not only production efficiency and the quality of produced batteries but also the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. The company will also take care of the ecological production process. It will be powered by photovoltaic installation stabilized by energy storage built from recycled battery systems previously used in public transport. Ultimately, half of the raw materials used in production will also come from recycling.
