Russia: World’s Largest Lithium Battery Plant to Open in Russian Far East

Novosibirsk — Liotech, a joint venture between RUSNANO and Chinese holding company Thunder Sky, has launched the world’s largest high-capacity lithium-ion battery factory near Novosibirsk. Investments in the project exceed 13.5 billion rubles. The plant, which covers more than 40,000 square meters, was built in record time-nine months from start to finish.

RUSNANO CEO Anatoly Chubais, First Deputy Governor of Novosibirsk Oblast Alexei Khomlyansky, and Liotech CEO Alexander Erokhin participated in the opening ceremonies.

The Liotech plant will produce batteries of various capacities (200 Ah, 300 Ah, and 700 Ah) using environmentally safe nanostructured cathode material of lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4). Among all materials used in mass production, this one provides the best battery properties.

The new factory has design capacity of more than 1 GWh or approximately one million batteries per year. Capacity is sufficient to equip 500,000 electric buses with batteries.
