  • LG Energy Solution to supply ICPT with around 200,000 units of battery modules for electric bus application for 3 years
  • Battery modules manufactured at the LG Energy Solution Wrocław facility to be assembled into battery packs and systems at GigafactoryX ICPT in Pruszków
  • The deal to put Poland at the center of a comprehensive European supply chain for electric public transportation, with Solaris Bus & Coach - a leading electric bus producer in Europe - being one of the first European customers to receive batteries
  • LG Energy Solution to apply NCM chemistry which enables higher density to its batteries, realizing longer driving range and enhanced durability

SEOUL, December 7, 2023 – LG Energy Solution (KRX: 373220), a leading global manufacturer of advanced lithium-ion batteries, and Impact Clean Power Technology(ICPT), a top global supplier of heavy-duty battery systems for public transportation, announced that they have signed a supply agreement for NCM lithium-ion battery modules.

Over the next three years, LG Energy Solution will deliver around 200,000 units of battery modules manufactured at its Wroclaw plant in Poland to ICPT’s GigafactoryX in Pruszkow, where they will be assembled into battery packs and systems. The supplied batteries will be capable of supporting the manufacture of nearly 3,000 large commercial electric vehicles.

With the entire process from battery manufacturing to electric bus production taking place in Poland, this deal aims to establish a comprehensive supply chain for Europe’s electric public transportation system. The partnership also signifies the concerted efforts of both companies to drive forward the electrification of Europe.

The agreement also marks a major milestone for both companies in solidifying technological leadership in the highly demanding commercial vehicle sector. Batteries for commercial vehicles like electric buses must withstand a much higher energy flow, up to around 11 times higher than passenger cars, which is why LG Energy Solution will apply NCM chemistry to its batteries to enhance their durability and driving range.

- Our partnership with ICPT, a highly trusted battery systems provider for public transportation, presents us an exciting opportunity to introduce our outstanding battery technology to the fast-growing European commercial vehicle market,” said Seungtaek Hong, head of Advanced Automotive Battery OTS Marketing Department at LG Energy Solution. “Capitalizing on our Wroclaw plant, which is the biggest battery manufacturing facility in Europe, we are committed to establishing a robust supply chain in Europe and expediting its transition to sustainable mobility.”

LG Energy Solution Wrocław is Europe's largest producer of lithium-ion batteries for the automotive industry. Located in Biskupice Podgórne (Kobierzyce commune), the plant’s current capacity is 70GWh and covers an area of about 100 hectares. All battery components are manufactured up to the point where they are ready for installation in a car. LG Energy Solution Wrocław makes Poland the European leader in the industry.

"Our partnership with LG Energy Solution will strengthen our leading battery offering in the bus market. Together, we can provide our customers with exceptional, advanced solutions tailored to the demanding conditions of this market,” said Bartek Kras, Vice President of ICPT. “Considering the strong global demand, this is a significant added value for this sector. This way, we can offer both our current and new customers the highest quality and guaranteed supply assurance.”
