In January 2018, SK Innovation, the third biggest company in South Korea, started building one of the largest battery factories in Europe – a total investment of 280 mio. euro creating 410 new jobs.
The factory will produce lithium batteries for electric vehicles and it will be located on a 430,000 square metre site in the industrial park of Komárom in the western part of Hungary.
The new factory is scheduled to commence mass production in the beginning of 2020, and when completed in 2022 the manufactured battery capacity will be around 7.5 GWh per year – able to supply 250,000 cars with batteries.
From the beginning of the planning phase back in 2017, we have been cooperating with the designer providing datasheets, drawings, technical descriptions etc. Later, the contractor OK BAU Kft., one of the biggest special civil engineer companies in Hungary, came to visit our headquarters in Denmark and thus, got knowledge about the quality and the scope of our product range prior to choosing our solutions for the factory.
