Case study
  • The challenges

    • Contribute to the construction of the first European gigafactory, intended for the production of Li-ion batteries in sufficient volumes for the global electric traction market

    • Improve the availability of these components essential for clean mobility and for which there will be great demand in the coming years

    • Optimise production times and costs to tackle competition from Asia

    • Reduce the environmental footprint and energy expenditure of the utilities of this gigafactory, particularly its dry rooms•

  • Our Solutions

    The design, supply and installation of technological equipment for the creation of a Li-ion battery production unit in Sweden encompasses:

    • Design and creation of an ISO 6 48,000 m² dry room (dew point -40)

    • Electrolyte storage and distribution

    • Utility management (heating water, ice, process water, compressed air)

    • Considerable back office engineering fire power on our French sites

    • A team dedicated to the project is seconded to site, integrating perfectly with the customer teams

    • A single point of contact to limit interfaces

    • Permanent value engineering: optimisation of costs and lead times to be in the time-to-market imposed by this booming market
