Opel brings over a century of German industrial know-how to ACC. They've lead the way in creating robust, reliable vehicles since 1899.
THIS PROJECT IS JOINTLY SUPPORTED BY :
The French State, notably under the Future Investment Programme and the Fund for Innovation and Industry, the Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Hauts-de-France regions as well as “SIZIAF”, the Communauté d’agglomération Bethune-Bruay Artois Lys Romane and the Communauté d’agglomération Lens-Liévin ; and the European Union and the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. It received the European institutions agreement through an IPCEI project that testifies to the strategic importance of mobility for the energy transition.
Already on the road to clean, accessible automotive energy
ACC is investing to become a major player in decarbonized transport solutions. Our R&D center and testing facilities in Nouvelle-Aquitaine are just the beginning. By 2030, we aim to produce one million batteries annually.
Our R&D center, powering future innovations in automotive batteries.
This high-tech facility will allow us to optimise our processes, from product innovation to production.
Starting with 8GWh in 2023, this facility will have the capacity to ultimately ramp up to 24-32GWh.
Combining R&D with leading-edge production, this facility will generate 24-32GWh.
FROM THURSDAY 25 FEBRUARY TO FRIDAY 23 APRIL 2021 INCLUDED, THE GIGAFACTORY PROJECT ON THE DOUVRIN/BILLY-BERCLAU SITE IS SUBJECT TO PRIOR CONSULTATION WITH THE PUBLIC.

Pour développer le projet innovant et ambitieux que représente l’usine ACC de production de batteries de Billy-Berclau - Douvrin, le dialogue avec la population et les parties prenantes locales revêt une importance fondamentale. C’est pourquoi ACC s’est engagée pleinement dans la concertation qui s’est tenue du 25 février au 23 avril 2021.
Dans cette interview pour le magazine « Ingénieurs de l’Auto », Yann Vincent revient sur l’extraordinaire ambition de créer un « Airbus des batteries » en France et en Allemagne au profit de la souveraineté européenne.
