Asgard Hi-Tech Solutions has settled into the site of its new project in Sunderland for a Japanes electric vehicle battery technology company.
The new project sees Asgard work for the Wates Group on its construction for Envision AESC, a world-leading Japanese electric vehicle battery technology company.
Envision's second Sunderland factory will deliver a six-fold increase in UK electric vehicle battery production in the UK. Envision has doubled in size since production began and now employs more than 470 people in Sunderland.
Globally AESC batteries are found in 800,000 electric vehicles operating with zero critical incidents. The state-of-the-art facility will produce AESC’s latest generation batteries, with 30% more energy density to improve range and efficiency, and manufacture enough batteries to power 100,000 electric vehicles annually.
The new phase
The new compound is in Sunderland, UK and the Asgard team says it is looking forward to working on this exciting project as part of the Wates Group project team.
As part of the project, Asgard will be providing a full turnkey fit-out package inclusive of dry cleanrooms and MEP services for an Envision Gigafactory Battery Plant on the International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP).
In recent weeks, Asgard has now settled into their presence at the site.
