Europe’s largest LFP factory set to commence production in Q3 2024

Morrow Batteries ASA (“Morrow”) will commence mass production at Europe’s first gigawatt-scale factory for LFP batteries in 2024. In 2024, Morrow has reached significant milestones in technology, market, organisation and financing.

The company will present an Industrial Update at a webcast on Tuesday, May 28, 2024.

“During 2024, we have successfully advanced our preparations for the industrial scale-up of our battery production in gigawatt scale. We follow a step-wise plan, mitigating risk efficiently, and in Q3, we will open the first 1 GWh factory based on the proven LFP technology in Arendal, Norway. We have already shipped thousands of sample cells from our customer qualification line in Korea, and we recently announced significant improvements in the lifespan and energy density of our LFP batteries. The strategic sales agreement with Nordic Batteries, which we signed in April, demonstrates the quality of our products and our industrial platform,” says CEO of Morrow Batteries, Lars Christian Bacher.

The company announced yesterday that it had raised capital in a directed share issue towards existing shareholders. The main shareholders, Å Energi, PKA, Siemens Financial Services, ABB, and some minor shareholders participated.

“We are proceeding well on our track to become a profitable Norwegian battery production company, and we appreciate the backing from our shareholders. As we advance, we will continue to raise capital as we gradually scale up. We plan to apply for NOK 1.5 billion from the new government scheme for green industrial financing, which is expected to be launched shortly. This will be crucial for releasing more private capital as we scale up,” says Lars Christian Bacher.

While Morrow’s first factory will initially produce LFP batteries, the company continues to advance the technology for LNMO batteries, driven by a highly qualified team with 25 nationalities based at Morrow’s research centre in Grimstad.

“Based on our proven LFP technology, in the medium- to long term, we will target a gradual scale-up and introduce our proprietary LNMO technology with significantly lower costs and longer battery life. Morrow has the potential to take a global cost- and sustainability leadership position for all battery use cases,” comments Bacher. Our go-to-market strategy is energy storage and niche segments, which both have substantial growth prospects and represent higher profit margins.
