Chinese battery specialist Dynavolt has this week opened its new lithium battery production plant in Fujian, southern China.
The fab has been built at an investment cost of €400 million and boasts an annual production capacity of 6 GWh, which – according to Dynavolt calculations, is enough to produce 200,000 electric vehicle batteries per year.
Solely lithium-based, the facility was constructed using equipment and machinery supplied from South Korea and Japan, and the fab can pump out 200 units per minute. Dynavolt already has 6 GWh annual lithium battery production capacity in Hubei, and aims to reach 25 GWh capacity by 2020.
Spanish-Chinese power electronics firm Wynnertech has already signed a deal with the facility for the supply of Dynavolt’s flexible modular lithium batteries for installation in a range of C&I storage applications from 30 kW in size up to multi-MW storage systems.
German battery integrator Durion has also signed a supply deal with Dynavolt. The firm will install Dynavolt’s batteries at its new 100 MW (200 MWh) battery electricity storage system (BESS) in Germany, which is being developed to provide primary frequency regulation and other ancillary services to the grid.
