Britishvolt says it is collaborating with Pininfarina to build the UK’s first large-scale battery gigaplant at the former Royal Air Force base of Bro Tathan in Wales.

“At Britishvolt, we believe in prioritising an innovative design to match the future quality of our lithium ion cells,” said Britishvolt CEO and founder, Orral Nadjari.

“With Pininfarina bringing the full force of its elegance and heritage in automotive design to architecture, we believe we can accomplish this desire.

“Britishvolt’s aim to become the world’s first zero carbon battery manufacturer aligns with Pininfarina’s expertise in creating green, high tech and innovative environments. With carefully selected sustainable materials that take into account the entire building’s life cycle, Pininfarina’s appreciation of social impact is what drew us to this partnership.”

For his part, Pininfarina SVP of Architecture, Giovanni de Niederhäusern added: “2020 marks the 90th anniversary of Pininfarina.

“Over the years, we have been able to draw on the expertise gained in the automotive world and apply this to architecture, starting from Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) methodologies for off-site construction, up to the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) to evaluate and improve the building’s life-cycle performance.”
