Daimler begins the development stage for a brief moment battery plant at their backup ACCUMOTIVE’s site in Kamenz, making a further ensuing stride towards electromobility. With a venture of around 500 million euros, the site in Kamenz will be one of the greatest and most cutting edge battery industrial facilities in Europe.
“By 2025, our traveler auto item portfolio will contain more than ten completely electric vehicles. In the meantime, we are consistently pushing our module cross breed hostile and the presentation of 48-volt-frameworks. Very productive battery frameworks are a critical part of our procedure. They are a necessary part of the vehicle engineering and not an instant item. The improvement, generation and joining of those unpredictable frameworks into our vehicles is one of our center abilities”, expressed Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber (Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development).
Arrangement creation of the EQ with a scope of up to 500 kilometers will begin inside this decade in the SUV fragment. A model hostile will take after in this way, supplementing the arrangement of Mercedes-Benz Cars with zapped models. ACCUMOTIVE will convey the batteries for the main EQ creation show.
The new creation office is wanted to begin operations amidst 2018. The range of around 20 hectares is situated in quick nearness of the current battery production line in Kamenz, around 50 kilometers from Dresden. With the development of the second office, the creation and coordinations range will be quadrupled to around 80,000 square meters. ACCUMOTIVE will step by step increment the quantity of representatives in the coming years. The workforce will twofold before this present decade’s over.
The new plant will be developed as a CO2-impartial industrial facility. Creation offices will be controlled by a cogeneration unit and a photovoltaic framework consolidated with stationary vitality stockpiling frameworks. Sun based modules with the surface of two football fields will be introduced on the housetop of the new generation building. This equivalents a limit of 2 megawatts. The new battery processing plant will likewise be benchmark for Industry 4.0 with most present day offices and advances.
Later on, Kamenz will deliver lithium-particle batteries for all jolted vehicles of Mercedes-Benz and shrewd – incorporating module cross breeds and also completely electric vehicles. On top of that, Kamenz will create batteries for stationary Mercedes-Benz vitality stockpiling units and additionally 48-volt-frameworks. The 48-volt-framework will slowly be coordinated into various model extents.
