RENERA will build a plant in Kaliningrad region for production of lithium-ion cells and energy storage systems

The plant’s production is supposed to be consumed mainly by domestic car manufacturers

RENERA will build a plant in Kaliningrad region for production of lithium-ion cells and energy storage systems

Moscow, September 17 - Neftegaz.RU. RENERA, Rosatom's integrator company for energy storage business, and the Government of Kaliningrad Region have signed an agreement on accomplishment of an investment project, aimed at building of a plant for production of lithium-ion cells and energy storage systems in Russia’s Western exclave region.

Enertech International, a South Korean manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries and RENERA’s 49% subsidiary since 2021, will be the technological partner of the project.
Its expertise and developments will enable manufacturing of products meeting high international standards.

The preliminary need for personnel at the new plant is estimated at 2 000 people.

The plant for the production of lithium-ion cells and energy storage systems, the so called «Russian gigafactory», will be launched at the Baltic NPP site already in 2026.
Construction of the manufacturing facility will contribute to development of this industrial site.
The full production capacity of the plant will be at least 3 GWh annually (the total energy volume of the produced batteries).

Emin Askerov, Director General of RENERA, said:
  • The signals we receive from the Russian market indicate that the production volumes we planned a year ago may be insufficient
  • To fulfill the current plans for electric transport development, we are considering a possible growth of the plant's production capacity up to 12 GWh
Energy storage is an end-to-end technology in Rosatom’s portfolio of new businesses, which makes it possible to create high-tech products which are in demand in the new technological paradigm in compliance with the energy transition concept.

Russian-made lithium-ion batteries should be used, in particular, in electric vehicles, power grids, uninterruptible power supply systems and energy consumption balancing systems.
