ABB providing substation for LG Chem EV battery factory in Poland

ABB is providing a substation for LG Chem’s electric car battery factory in Poland, Europe’s largest. Key equipment supplies include transformers, surge arrestors and gas insulated switchgear that will ensure safe and reliable power supplies.

The new car battery plant in Kobierzyce, near Wroclaw will be capable of supplying up to 250,000 electric cars with batteries per year. It is also the first large-scale lithium-ion battery plant for automotive applications producing all battery components, from electrodes to cells, modules and packs.

The substation is a key element of the power supply system, linking the grid and the power supply to the plant. Its proper operation is crucial for the energy security of the plant, especially in case of highly automated facilities, where power supply issues can result in costly downtime.
