CATL plans battery cell output of 60 GWh at German plant
Reuters | 2019/1/25

BERLIN -- Chinese battery maker Contemporary Amperex Technology is targeting annual production of 60 gigawatt-hours by 2026 at its first European production site in Germany, a senior CATL manager said on Wednesday.

Matthias Zentgraf, CATL's regional president for Europe, told a business conference in Berlin that the battery cell factory in Erfurt would start production in 2021 and that the company would create 600 new jobs at the site.

CATL, the world's largest maker of battery cells for electric vehicles, said in July it would build its first European production site in Erfurt and the plant would supply carmaker BMW with lithium ion batteries
