Taiwanese solid-state battery technology company ProLogium Technology is searching for the location of its first overseas solid-state gigafactory.
The company said its overseas gigafactory would have an estimated total investment of more than $8 billion and a total expected capacity of up to 120GWh when the plant is completed by 2031.
Shortlisted locations in the US, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and the UK have been identified after a feasibility study for potential sites.
A final decision is set to be made by the first quarter of 2023.
The battery maker has established more than 4,000 quality control items in its production processes, achieving 99.9% yield for its single-layer cell manufacturing and 94% yield for multi-layer cells.
The company has held meetings with US and French government officials, including France’s president Emmanuel Macron.
Earlier this year, car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz concluded a technology cooperation agreement with ProLogium to develop next-generation EV battery cells.
In July, Vietnamese EV maker VinFast entered into strategic cooperation with ProLogium to secure next-generation solid-state battery supplies to expand its smart mobility solutions globally.
