ProLogium to build Dunkirk EV battery factory

The grant from the French government will serve as a backing for ProLogium's R&D for EV batteries.

ProLogium selected France as the location for its first large-scale solid-state battery manufacturing plant outside Asia. The grant from the French government, approved by the European Commission under the European framework for state aid for research, development and innovation (RDIF), will serve as a backing for ProLogium’s project in researching and developing a new generation of batteries for electric vehicles and to set up a 48 GWh gigafactory in Dunkirk, France.

The company said the support of its European manufacturing site will not only supply the European automotive industry with advanced batteries manufactured using decarbonized energy, but will also play a pivotal role in the French government’s green re-industrialization strategy.

“The approval of this grant is a testament to ProLogium’s potential contribution to achieving net zero in France and Europe, as well as the value of our innovative solutions,” Vincent Yang, founder and CEO of ProLogium, said. “This grant will serve as a powerful financial backing for ProLogium’s Gigafactory project, empowering us to make steady progress in Dunkirk towards our goal: implementing local supply and manufacturing for European OEM customers.”
