The reliable and efficient power distribution network is an important building block in the construction of Europe's largest and most advanced lithium-ion battery factory, to be built by Northvolt in Skelleftea in northern Sweden. ABB will provide power supply infrastructure from the local grid right into the production facilities. The power system network will be commissioned incrementally, starting in 2021, when battery production is scheduled to start.

Electrification and storage of renewable energy are prerequisites for a carbon neutral society. By building Europe's largest battery factory, Northvolt is helping to drive the energy transition to a carbon neutral society. The factory will initially have a production capacity of 16 GWh per year.

ABB's delivery, which will ensure stable and reliable power for the factory, includes project management, design, procurement of all 3rd party equipment, monitoring of installation, and commissioning. The scope of supply includes transformers, switchgears, cables and installation materials, protective equipment and control systems.

The power supply to the battery factory is designed for high energy efficiency and low losses. The cost-effective design is jointly evolved by ABB and Northvolt, based on Northvolt's specific needs and requirements for reliability.
