Rosatom opens an assembly plant for lithium-ion batteries at MPZ in Moscow
MOSCOW, December 14 – RIA Novosti. Rosatom opened a new assembly plant for lithium-ion energy storage systems in Moscow – its first products, St. They are traction batteries for trolleybuses that will operate on the streets of St. Petersburg.
The opening ceremony of production, located on the territory of the Moscow Polymetal Plant (MZP, part of the TVEL fuel company Rosatom), was held on Wednesday.
“The first samples collected at the construction site were traction batteries for trolleybuses with increased autonomous operation, designed to operate on city roads in St. Petersburg,” TVEL said in a statement.
Mass production of batteries for electric transport and stationary energy storage systems was created by the company Renera, part of TVEL, integrator of the nuclear industry in energy storage systems. The capacity of the new production at the MZP is 10 times greater than the pilot production site created at the enterprise in 2021. The annual production volume will be up to 150 MWh batteries for stationary systems (total capacity of manufactured devices) or around 2,000 traction batteries for electric vehicles.
The portfolio of production orders for 2023 includes traction batteries for urban mass electric transport. It is also planned to produce prototype batteries for a number of Russian-made electric passenger vehicles. The approved requirement for stationary energy storage systems is at least 50 MWh.
