Elinor Batteries and SINTEF have entered into a strategic cooperation agreement aimed at establishing a giga-scale factory for manufacturing sustainable batteries in central Norway.

As part of this collaboration, Elinor has secured the necessary research and development resources to drive the project forward. SINTEF will open its battery laboratory almost simultaneously with the start of Elinor's plans for a battery factory. 

The agreement covers technological aspects along the entire value chain of battery production, including production technology, infrastructure, management, economy and societal aspects.

 

“Competition in the battery sector is knowledge-intensive. A Norwegian battery factory needs to excel in terms of sustainability along the entire value chain and have a knowledge edge in electrochemistry, materials technology and mass production to be successful. We have invested heavily to establish world-leading battery production laboratories. We look forward to working together with Elinor to achieve its industrial goals,” says Alexandra Bech Gjørv, CEO of SINTEF.

“This is an important agreement for Elinor Batteries, which allows us to start production of A-samples as early as this spring. The A-samples are crucial to qualify as a supplier in an industry that has long been dominated by Asian suppliers,” says Terje Andersen, CEO of Elinor Batteries.
