Northvolt starts construction of German gigafactory

Swedish battery manufacturer Northvolt has officially stated the construction of its battery gigafactory – Northvolt Drei – in the German city of Heide.

“Germany was, is, and will remain a country with a strong manufacturing base. And the production of good cars beyond the combustion engine continues to form the backbone of our industrial sector. For that, we need battery cells made in Germany, made in Europe,” said Olaf Scholz, Chancellor of Germany during the groundbreaking.

The gigafactory will utilise the renewable energy from wind power, delivering on Northvolt’s mission to mass produce the world’s greenest batteries for the automotive, industrial and energy sectors. The industrial complex is planned to employ roughly 3,000 people with a maximum annual production capacity of 60 GWh, starting first operations in 2026.

“It’s great to get this show on the road. We are deeply grateful for the support from customers, investors and public stakeholders to create this flagship project for the global climate transition. Heide feels like home to us – and if you’re looking for a mission that’s more than a job, in the region with the highest quality of life in Germany, come join us,” says Peter Carlsson, CEO and Co-Founder of Northvolt.
