Battery pioneer Britishvolt will anchor its UK battery scale up facilities in the West Midlands, with an investment exceeding £200 million with partner Prologis, the logistics real estate operator, that will create and sustain upwards of 150 highly skilled and well-paid technology jobs. The facility at Prologis Park Hams Hall enables Britishvolt to rapidly ramp up cells that are production ready to be manufactured in larger volumes at its Northumberland Gigaplant.

New facilities, based at Hams Hall, will spearhead new cell formats and electro chemistries to create higher performance, production ready, batteries of the future whilst helping lower cell costs for more affordable EVs, aiding mass adoption. The Hams Hall facilities are net zero carbon in construction and will achieve an EPC A Rating in operation.

According to Paul Franklin, Property Director, Britishvolt, Hams Hall is destined to become a centre of excellence for all things EV/Electrification, with major automakers close by. The facility will complement the Britishvolt value proposition for customers at Cambois, Northumberland and support the smooth start-up of Gigaplant operations in 2024.

Practical completion of the development is anticipated in July with fit out and equipment installation to be undertaken through to end Q3, 2023.
