The MCF is the building block for Morrow's mission to provide state-of-the-art production technology, as well as, product and process innovations to guarantee the highest quality products at a competitive cost.
Morrow plans to use the MCF to manufacture battery cells on a smaller scale before ramping up production towards mass-production at the giga module Eyde 1.
The facility is equipped with similar production equipment as Eyde 1, with the aim of demonstrating mass-production capability and scale-up, as well as attaining valuable battery production experience with a focus on production processes and quality management.
One of the many advantages of the Eyde Energy Park location is its access to a significant amount of renewable energy, making it ideal for battery production. Furthermore, the area is ready for construction to start, and it enjoys port access a few kilometers away, with a new road prepared for autonomous transport.
Veidekke, the Norwegian construction company, is responsible for constructing the Morrow Cell Factory. POs for all manufacturing equipment were issued in May 2023, and manufacturing is well underway.
The combination of the Eyde Energy Park's strategic location, state-of-the-art production technology, and select product and process innovations will undoubtedly lead to the manufacturing of the greenest battery cells in the world.
