Technology and Automotive Cells Company (ACC) have agreed to work together on developing solid-state batteries for electric vehicles (EVs).

ProLogium and ACC sign MoU

According to the companies, “ProLogium Inside” EV battery solutions will be created for clients using ProLogium’s solid-state battery technology and subsequent supply chain and business agreements reached by both parties.

Vincent Yang

founder and CEO of ProLogium, said, “We are very thrilled to cooperate with ACC and further build on our pioneering position in allowing the swift transition to electric driving. With our high-performance, affordable, and safe technologies.

We are a major innovator in battery technology with established manufacturing capabilities, and we aim to develop a large overseas manufacturing footprint and cross-cultural operational capability as a driver for a more sustainable world.

ACC’s Mission

“With an emphasis on safety, competitiveness, and performance, ACC’s mission is to design and manufacture battery cells for electric vehicles while assuring the greatest level of quality and the smallest possible carbon footprint.

ProLogium, one of our important partners, will assist us in providing EV goods with cutting-edge battery technology and in setting up a sufficient supply chain to provide a more pleasurable and secure driving experience.” ACC CEO Yann Vincent remarked.

ACC announced earlier this year that it would build its first gigafactory in Billy-Berclau, Hauts-de-France, with the goal of having 120 GWh of installed capacity in Europe by 2030.

In view of the expected exponential rise in demand for electric vehicles over the following ten years, ProLogium has also revealed that it is looking for its first overseas gigafactory location for next-generation solid-state batteries in Europe, Asia, or the United States.

The battery manufacturer had discussions with numerous organisations in these areas.

The company was established in the 2020s, according to ACC, as a consequence of an effort by Stellantis, TotalEnergies, and its subsidiary Saft. Mercedes-Benz also joined the initiative, and France, Germany, and the EU also provided significant support.

ProLogium is also searching for a location for its first gigafactory outside of the United States so that it can expand manufacturing of its unique batteries with an eye on the automotive industry. In order to construct a multiphase 120 gigawatt-hour battery production facility in Europe, it wants to invest $8 billion over the following ten years.

France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, and the United Kingdom are among the current host nations on the short list. The location will be decided in Q2 2023.

A state-of-the-art Pilot Plant in France, Nersac, and a new R&D Expertise Center in Bruges, according to ACC, are already operational. It is currently constructing its first gigafactory in Billy-Berclau Douvrin, Hauts-de-France.

In Germany, a second lithium-ion gigafactory is scheduled to open in 2025 together with a new applied engineering centre. And a new gigafactory in Termoli, Italy, has been announced.

According to ACC, the existing projects have a total investment of EUR7 billion ($6.9 billion).
