CBAK Energy Commences Operation of Nanjing Lithium Battery Manufacturing Facility
DALIAN, China, Nov. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CBAK Energy Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBAT) ("CBAK Energy", or the "Company"), a leading lithium-ion battery manufacturer and electric energy solution provider, today announced that the Company had begun operations at its lithium battery manufacturing plant in the city of Nanjing in China's Jiangsu province.
The plant is equipped with an initial annual capacity of 0.7 GWh for the Company's new 32140 battery model that target the light electric vehicle ("LEV") and electric vehicle sectors. These batteries are being gradually delivered to customers as the plant's output is progressively expanding to full production capacity. Additionally, CBAK Energy is on track to complete the first construction phase for its Nanjing facility (the "Project") by the end of 2022 when the total capacity of the first phase is expected to be expanded to 2 GWh per year. Meanwhile, the Company raised the planned capacity for the second phase of the Project to 18 GWh per year from the original 6 GWh per year to meet growing customer demands. CBAK Energy plans to commence construction of the second phase by the end of this year.
CBAK has also started operating a new production line at its Dalian facility to make an annual 0.4 GWh of its new 26700 battery model, an upgrade from its original 26650 battery model, for the LEV and energy storage sectors. Output from this new production line was ramped up in earlier November, and production in Dalian facility will last until the second quarter of 2022 to fulfill the number of orders already received. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic containment measures recently adopted in Dalian by the local government, operations of this new production line, along with CBAK's existing production lines in the city, have been suspended and may continue to be suspended for additional time. The Company is closely monitoring the situation and will resume production once the local containment measures ease.
Mr. Yunfei Li, Chief Executive Officer of CBAK Energy, commented, "We are very delighted about our progress in expansion. The new capacity of these batteries enales us to capitalize on emerging opportunities in a broader market and development space. Along with the development of electric vehicles, we will continue to enhance our production and supply capabilities to address the robust demands for cylindrical lithium batteries."
