The total investment of the Vale will be 450 million crowns, which is expected to start production at the end of 2019. A new hall with an area of 4,000 square meters generates up to 1,2 million cooling modules annually.
Valeo develops and produces the thermal systems of batteries needed for the operation of best electric vehicles, their resilience and reliability. Battery cells must be maintained at a temperature range of 15 to 45 degrees Celsius, ensuring their efficiency and service life, with all cells inside the battery running around & # 39; r a temperature. The company offers a different sized cooling system for all types of vehicles, whether it is hybrid, flexible or close to electricity. Thanks to the super-flat construction, the boards and tubes are in the best interest with the battery and thus reach uniform temperatures and uniforms.
Operate the company of Valeo in Žebrák
Valeo is one of the largest automotive employers in the Czech Republic with more than 4500 employees in five factories. He employs 850 people in Žebrák. There are seven million air-conditioners and 200,000 heating gas recovery heaters each year.
The company has been operating in the Czech Republic since 1995, when it opened its first factory in Rakovník. Gradually, other plants were established in Žebrák, Humpolec and Podbořany. It produces air conditioning components, gas reorganization devices, control panels, front grille with active grin and bracket clutch and hydraulic components. In 2002, he established a research and development center in Prague. In 2013 in Milovice, she created test polygons for testing of sensors and systems for autonomous control.
Subsidies on batteries
Chronicle for electric cars is a major issue for all carmaker and also to the EU. The European Union intends to authorize state support to investigate electric batteries. Companies wishing to build large plants for production will then offer co-financing in billions of euros.
Brussels is concerned that the car industry, which employs around 13 million people in the EU, can lose the race to build the electric cars market due to its dependency on Asian batteries.
Electromobility raises money for everyone, manufacturers, state and people
The advent of electromobility is not just a technical emergence for automatists, how to develop cars for electricity that people want to buy but also financially. Investing in the development of electromobility is very expensive and the profits are very uncertain. READ OUT
About 80 per cent of current battery capacity is planned in the world, according to Bloomberg's data in Asia, only in China is 69 percent. The US has 15 per cent and the EU is only four percent.
Regions that want to support the sector can apply for € 22 billion in regional funds.
BASF has chosen the Harjavalta French town as a location for the first of the proposed network of battery materials to supply the European automotive market. The company will be located near the nickel and cobalt refinery that belong to Norilsk Nickel (Nornickel). "BASF also signed a long-term market agreement with Nornickel to deliver key raw materials from local burghs," the companies said.
"BASF moves closer to achieving its vision: an increase in the driving range of electric vehicles per pay of 300 to 600 km, half the life of the battery on twice the life of the service, and a reduction of 15 minutes in the charging time, by 2025 , "said Jeffrey Lou,.
The construction of Harjavalta is part of a 400 million euro-multi-million multi-phase investment plan announced last year by BASF. BASF supports the EU and EU energy storage agenda.
"If European companies were not investing in electromobility, they would probably miss similar opportunities as they offered in the 1980's, the internet in the 1990s, and solar panels in the last decade. The producers speak clearly: the sale of electric vehicles during the first six months of this year has risen in almost all EU countries in tensile order to hundreds of percent, with an average increase of 40.3% for the Union as a whole ", emphasizes Chief BASF Spol Executive Officer. s.r. Filip Dvořák.
"Last October, the European Commission Vice President Maroš Šefčovič, a battery league, who invited BASF to this project also started. This European league has the right to achieve competitiveness and a third part of the world's battery market -eang, even with a BASF contribution, "added Filip Dvorak.
The full launch of Harjavalta traffic expected at the end of 2020 will ensure the supply of battery materials for approximately 300,000 electric vehicles per annum.
"By investing in Finland, BASF will be present in every major global region that offers local production and increased customer proximity to electromobility," said Kenneth Lane, Catalyst Director of the Catalyst Department.
BASF is currently looking for other European venues for the construction of battery factories. On other continents, however, its operations are already: research and development centers around the world.
Other electro-battery chronicles are created elsewhere in Europe. A French battery manufacturer, Saft, works with Siemens, Solvay and Manz to develop cheaper and powerful semiconductor batteries. Production could start seven years. Northvolt gave EUR 52.5 million from the European Investment Bank (EIB) to build a demonstration line and research capabilities of $ 100 million. The facility will open next year. Its aim is to build the largest European plant with an annual production of 32 gigawatthodin by 2023.
Unicore is building a cat's plant in Poland to start operations by 2020 and is expected to publish a Varta German battery maker and a US carmaker Ford to produce joint car batteries.
The lack of raw materials the EU intends to tackle, for example, by recycling old electronics, but it has also started mapping the mineral resource in Europe. According to Šefčovič, cobalt deposits, lithium, graphite and nickel have been located in France, Finland, Portugal, Spain and the Czech Republic.
The accumulation of electro-battery is dominated today by Japanese Panasonic, Chinese automated automaker and South Korea LG Chem and Samsung. Even this year, Big Bosch Germany was also targeting this year, but in March, suddenly, it re-evaluated its plans and canceled the 20 billion euro investment plan to build the factory.
