LITHIUM PROJECT

A Made in Italy project for the energy transition in Europe

In Teverola (CE), the subsidiary FIB S.p.A. has built and started up the first plant in Italy for the production of li-on cells, modules and lithium batteries, and the first in Europe by European companies, as part of the reindustrialization project of the former Indesit (Whirlpool) industrial area.

The new plant has an initial installed capacity of about 330 MWh/year of li-on electric accumulators for Motive Power, Naval, Military and Storage (ESS) applications, and has been designed to be expanded over time according to market demand.
FIB, repeating what has already been done for lead-acid batteries, intends to control the entire supply chain of the production of electric accumulators, manufacturing all the components of the battery: anode and cathode, cell assembly, cell formation, module assembly and battery packs. It also produces the BMS (Battery Management System) internally, which makes it possible to manage and control the accumulator and communicate with any connected equipment.

The European Commission, within the program called IPCEI (Important Projects of Common European Interest) has approved a facility for a total amount of Euro 3.2 billion in favour of 17 companies operating in the following European countries: Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Sweden.

The Project (Investment Programme) of the subsidiary FIB, presented in February 2019, was examined by the Ministry of Economic Development and the EC and was considered innovative and consistent with the objectives of the Project.

The IPCEI Project is part of the policies aimed at encouraging the energy and ecological transition, providing incentives for electric mobility and reducing emissions, as a strategic objective for Europe.

The energy transition to electric mobility

The project is part of the energy transition to electric mobility and emission reduction, which is a highly strategic objective for Europe and requires an extraordinary effort to develop advanced technologies and autonomous European production chains. The project also is also enabling the development of technologies for the recycling of end-of-life batteries, in compliance with the principles of the Green Economy and Circular Economy.

FIB, as it has already done for lead-acid technology, produces all the components of lithium accumulators, controlling the entire production chain: anode and cathode, cell assembly, modules and lithium accumulators, and also produces the electronics for the BMS, which allows the management and control of the accumulator.

Starting with the recovery of active material and exhausted batteries, and thanks to the fully integrated supply chain, including the BMS electronics, a safe and innovative product can be brought to market, able to guarantee a superior performance by adapting to every customers' needs.

330 MWh/year of lithium accumulators for customized applications

FIB offers to the market integrated solutions allowing a total control over the performance of the accumulator and customizing it to the customer's needs and produces high performance lithium accumulators for tailor-made applications.

The company has improved the performance of the cells, compared to the initial project, and is very satisfied with the work carried out by its technicians who designed and managed, in-house, with the help of leading international suppliers, the construction of the plant.
