Electrive writes that this will include sustainable battery manufacturing, battery pack integration, but also mining and refining. Furthermore, end-of-life solutions, such as recycling will also be a point of interest for the project.
Freyr CEO Tom Einar Jensen said that "Freyr's vision for this coalition is to accelerate the energy transition across key sectors by scaling up clean battery production from Freyr’s gigafactories under development, and to incubate and develop innovative technology solutions together."
Freyr purchased a battery cell factory site in the United States, which could come on line sometime and 2024 and will have an initial annual production capacity of 34 GWh. În the project, Siemens is said to be working mostly in the space of battery cells for the e-mobility sector.
