Making the world's greenest batteries
Skellefteå is a breeding ground for a sustainable industry with a low climate impact. One of Europe's greenest battery factories is being built in the Bergsbyn industrial area. The factory is built in stages and is expected to be fully completed in 2026.
At the Bergsbyn industrial area in Skellefteå, Northvolt Ett is being built. This is where Northvolt will have most of its production. The factory will be one of Europe's largest battery factories, producing the world's greenest lithium-ion batteries for electric cars and energy storage. The area is as large as 71 football fields and Northvolt's establishment will generate about 4,000 jobs in Skellefteå when the factory is fully completed in 2026.
The construction started in 2018 and is divided into stages. The first stage included four production buildings that were completed at the end of 2021.
When the entire Northvolt Ett is in operation, the factory will be able to deliver batteries equivalent to 60-gigawatt hours per year, which is enough to manufacture about one million electric cars.
Between 2021 and 2022 new roads have been built adjacent to the area to create better traffic flows. An extension of Torsgatan from Northvolt to road 372 has been constructed, as well as a new roundabout from road 372 to the entrance of the area.
To ensure that employees feel safe cycling or walking to work, a new pedestrian and cycle path has been built. It runs parallel to Torsgatan and was completed in early 2023.
On site you can also find Revolt Ett, Europe's only large-scale recycling factory. It has he capacity to recycle materials needed for battery production and is the key to creating the world's greenest batteries.
