Dynavolt Starts Production of Li-ion Batteries in China

April 09, 2017 by Jeff Shepard

Dynavolt recently inaugurated its new mass production manufacturing facility of lithium based batteries in the Southern Chinese Province of Fujian. With an investment of 400 million euros, the factory will have a yearly production capacity of 6GWh, which can be used to build 200.000 electric vehicles every year. The fully automated, intelligent high-speed lithium battery cells production line uses top leading equipment from South Korea and Japan, with an output of more than 200 units per minute, three times that of other similar plants.

Dynavolt adds this manufacturing capacity to the 6GWh per annum of another plant in the Chinese Province of Hubei. Together with further ongoing initiatives, they will serve to achieve the aim of a combined manufacturing capacity of Lithium batteries of 25GWh per year in 2020.

Wynnertech will be one of the first power electronics manufacturers to provide electricity storage installation and management hardware for these battery cells, by using its new development, an innovative compact, flexible modular system with a highly efficient battery management system and independent control of each battery series, which is aimed at commercial and industrial applications from 30kW up to utility-scale multimegawatt plants.

This combination will also be used for integration in several ongoing battery electricity storage system (BESS) developments of Durion, that provides the required experience in the provision of grid support services and its proprietary energy management system. Among them, Durion will start to build later this year a 100MW, 200MWh BESS in Eastern Germany, aimed at the provision of primary frequency regulation and other ancillary services to the grid.

These milestones are further steps of Dynavolt in building its clean energy industrial chain, and a strong guarantee to further increase the competitiveness of the affiliate companies of the Dynavolt Group in renewable power, electric vehicle and electricity storage.

Wynnertech is a Spanish-Chinese manufacturer of proprietary technology power electronics equipment and components for power generation and storage, EV charging and grid support and testing, with European design and quality standards and competitive Chinese manufacturing, resulting in the most advanced state of the art systems with the best price-performance ratio of the market. Wynnertech is part of the new energy division of Dynavolt.

Durion is a German developer, designer, integrator and operator of battery storage systems, with extensive experience in the construction and management of electricity storage systems for new energy supply and power regulation markets. Durion built already in 2013 the largest Battery Power Plant in Europe (2MWh) for commercial reserve operation, and is currently developing a 100MW, 200MWh Battery Power Plant sited in its German headquarters at the Baltic Sea. Durion is part of the new energy division of Dynavolt.
