PowerX has planned to establish Power Base, its battery assembly plant in Tamano City, Okayama Prefecture.
Power Base will begin pilot production in 2023, followed by product delivery for EV fast chargers and other battery energy storage systems in Spring 2024.
Power Base did not reveal its investment plans for the battery unit.
Power Base is equipped with an annual production capacity of 5 GWh, equivalent to producing around 10,000 units of battery energy storage per year.
PowerX campus-like site also houses facilities such as R&D centers, offices, and conference rooms.
Power Base will lead to the employment of over 100 professionals, including engineers, technicians, and manufacturing operators.
