Electronic production | 25 November 2021

CBAK Energy Technology, a lithium-ion battery manufacturer, started operations at its lithium battery manufacturing plant in Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province of China.

The plant has an initial annual capacity of 0.7 GWh for the company’s new 32140 battery model which targets the light electric vehicle (LEV) and electric vehicle industries. These batteries are gradually delivered to customers as the plant’s output gradually increases to full production capacity. In addition, CBAK Energy is on track to complete the first phase of construction of its Nanjing facility by the end of 2022, when the total capacity of the first phase is expected to be increased to 2 GWh per year, reports a Press release. The company has also increased the capacity planned for the second phase of the project to 18 GWh per year, from 6 GWh per year initially to meet growing customer demands. CBAK Energy has announced its intention to start construction of the second phase by the end of this year. CBAK has also started to operate a new production line at its factory in Dalian to produce 0.4 GWh per year of its new battery model 26700, an upgrade from its original battery model 26650, for LEV and energy storage sectors. Production on this new production line was ramped up in early November, and production at the Dalian plant will last until the second quarter of 2022 to meet the number of orders already received. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic containment measures recently adopted in Dalian by the local government, the operations of this new production line, as well as CBAK’s existing production lines in the city, have been suspended and could continue to be suspended for an additional period.
