The first gigafactory includes over 60,000 m2 of workshops, with an initial production line featuring a capacity of more than 13 GWh, rising to 40 GWh by 2030
Automotive Cells Company (ACC) recently inaugurated its first gigafactory for electric vehicle batteries in Billy-Berclau/Douvrin in the Hauts-de-France region.
The first gigafactory, a flagship on a European scale, includes over 60,000 m2 of workshops, with an initial production line featuring a capacity of more than 13 GWh, rising to 40 GWh by 2030.
Ultimately, two other gigafactories will open their doors in Kaiserslautern (Germany) in 2025 and Termoli (Italy) in 2026, thereby enabling ACC to reach 120 GWh at full industrial capacity by 2030.
ACC represents the culmination of the collaborative effort between TotalEnergies, Stellantis and Mercedes-Benz, and should accelerate Europe's transition towards a sustainable mobility accessible to all.
Founded in 2020, ACC is a joint venture between Stellantis, Mercedes-Benz and TotalEnergies, through its affiliate Saft, which is behind the technology used by ACC. ACC is positioned as a key player in the battery industry to equip high-performance, low-carbon electric vehicles that are accessible to the greatest number of people.
As a multi-energy company, TotalEnergies is contributing to Europe's energy transition, which involves the electrification of energy uses. Our contribution to the development of ACC, as well as our investments in the development of batteries, the deployment of recharging infrastructures and the production of electricity, particularly renewable electricity, are all part of this process. TotalEnergies is thus contributing to the transformation of the European energy landscape and the emergence of a more sustainable economy.
