New York Lithium-ion Battery Plant Update
Project Status and Recent Milestones
Overall project completion rate is at 47%.
Facility customisation work continues to gain momentum with equipment being moved onto the factory floor and major works continuing inside and outside the factory. The size of the factory floor is approximately 22,000sqm which exceeds three professional football fields.
The iM3NY team has collaborated with Ramboll throughout the month of November with major construction works progressing and will continue through into early 2022. iM3NY has also continued conversations with process equipment vendors who will be assisting with the installation of their respective equipment.
During the month internal and external works progressed on the dry room, cathode wet mixing room, mier oven preparation, electrical sub-station, solvent recovery system and the anode mixing room.
There were zero safety incidents in November.
Semi-Automated Production and Permits
In the coming days it is expected that semi-autonomous production will begin with a batch of cells being produced for both marketing and due diligence purposes.
Importantly all permits have been granted as previously announced.
iM3NY CEO Chaitanya Sharma commented: "The project remains on schedule and under budget as Semi-Automated production is about to begin. Major progress continues to be made and we look forward to providing updates to all our stakeholders."
