  • The overall investment in the general construction of the Jhongli gigafactory has reached NT$ 4 billion.
  • GUS Technology also joins hands with global companions to produce a lithium battery ecosystem; production expectred in third quarter of 2023.

GUS Technology has inaugurated as well as opened up Taiwan's first battery gigafactory in Jhongli Industrial Park. The firm's facility will help in Taiwan's lithium battery industry reach a new milestone. GUS Technology focuses on lithium titanate (LTO) as well as NCM product systems. The factory participated in the layout, growth, as well as production of battery modules for EVs as well as energy storage given that completion of 2019. The overall financial investment in the total construction of the Jhongli gigafactory has gotten to NT$ 4 billion.

The battery gigafactory that is finished and also ushered in by GUS Technology is first of its kind in Taiwan that will create large-scale lithium batteries. The gigafactory is preparing to start production in the third quarter of 2023, and also the production capacity will certainly grow from 250MWh to more than 1GWh in the 2nd quarter of 2024.

Dr. CC Chang, Chairman of GUS Technology stated, "With the integration of Taiwan's industrial resources as well as talents with cutting-edge resources and core technologies, GUS Technology has actually made it possible for Taiwan to secure a key position in the global energy market with its high-end and also personalized R&D abilities. The world will certainly soon see Taiwan's battery R&D development and also manufacturing strength."

Simultaneously, GUS Technology has actually additionally announced the finalizing of a MOU with international partners consisting of Echion Technologies of the UK, Beyonder of Norway as well as Midwest Energy of India to collaborate in different facets like battery cell anode materials, energy storage space equipment, and also basic materials.

GUS Technology has the r & d competence of upstream materials, cell style, and production and modules to application end. It has introduced high-quality products into battery production, enhanced the general item return, and also created lithium batteries with independent technology that has the features of high security, high discharge rate, high storage power, large working temperature level variety, and also lengthy cycle life.

GUS Technology states that it aims to make Taiwan a R&D and also production center for key materials of new energy batteries and key components of high-end equipment on the planet as well as likewise promote circular economic situation of Taiwan's lithium battery.

The Facility

Taiwan's initial battery gigafactory has 2 structures: a major manufacturing base to produce lithium battery cells, as well as a R&D facility. Furthermore, the gigafactory implements energy conserving and carbon reduction procedures and adopts a green and low-carbon emission plan, allowing the better equipment in the gigafactory to conserve greater than 70,000,000 kWh of electricity each year.

The gigafactory additionally has a wastewater recycling mechanism to properly save water sources. Ultimately, GUS Technology conducts strict carbon footprint assessments to satisfy international standards in order to add to ecological sustainability.
