Elinor Batteries: and SINTEF sign MoU on Strategic Battery Collaboration

  • Sector: Infrastructure
  • Date: January 16, 2023

Elinor Batteries and SINTEF have entered into a Mamorandum of understanding on strategic cooperation aiming to establish large scale battery production of sustainable batteries in Mid-Norway.

Through the collaboration, Elinor Batteries has secured the necessary resources needed in research and development to drive the project forward. The agreement covers technological aspects in the entire value chain for battery production, including production technology, infrastructure, management, economics and societal elements.

The global battery competition is knowledge-intensive. We have invested considerably in having world-leading laboratories for battery production and we look forward to working with Elinor Batteries to reach their industrial goals, says Alexandra Bech Gjørv, CEO at SINTEF. 

This is an essential agreement for us, as it enables us to start producing A-samples already this spring, says Terje Andersen, CEO at Elinor Batteries. The A-samples are crucial to be qualified as a supplier in an industry that has long been dominated by Asian suppliers, explains Andersen. The collaboration agreement also means that Elinor Batteries will not establish its own research lab inside the factory but can prioritize fully on production.
