Italvolt Spa has signed a partnership with AECOM for the development of Italy’s largest gigafactory in Scarmagno, which will produce lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles.
AECOM, a leading infrastructure consulting firm, will provide professional services to optimise the project’s operations. When fully operational, the gigafactory will be one of the largest in Europe, with a battery production capacity of 45GWh.
“We’re excited to be working with Italvolt to progress its ambitious gigafactory, which is set to play an important role in scaling up electric vehicle battery production in Europe. Our team brings global expertise in the delivery of world-class industrial facilities and will be led by our local team in the region. Italvolt’s ESG ambitions align with our own objectives and we look forward to working with them to embed strong ESG principles across their procurement processes and help leave a lasting legacy for the community in Piemonte.”
A total of 3.4 billion EUR has been invested in the gigafactory’s development, which will push Europe’s transition to electric mobility by producing lithium-ion cells for a full range of electric vehicles, including private cars and public transport.
Alongside AECOM, Italvolt has partnered with ABB for electrification and automation, TÜV SÜD for control and certification of production processes, and American Manganese for the recycling of lilithium ion batteries.
“We are delighted to be working with one of the world’s leading infrastructure consulting firms. AECOM is the latest industry leading, technical service provider to join our project, underscoring its huge potential for the global battery industry. AECOM’s extensive experience supporting large industrial projects globally will enhance the extensive skills of our team and ensure that we deliver a state of the art facility. Our partnership reflects our shared commitment to sustainability and creating a truly circular economy for battery production and recycling in Europe.”
