Vincent Yang, CEO and founder of ProLogium:
“To accelerate the transition towards decarbonised transport, ProLogium is committed to introducing to the wider public solid-state batteries combining exceptional performance, commercial viability and a reduced environmental footprint. Setting up a gigafactory in Dunkirk is key to this objective. Located in the “Battery Valley” in the Nord region of France, the production centre will be able to benefit from low-carbon energies and at the same time from the power of this battery ecosystem and the talent of the Hauts-de-France region. In order to integrate well into the territory and produce mutual benefits, we are committed to investing substantial amounts of capital and technology into the local area. This will lead to the creation of 3,000 jobs and set up a battery supply chain that will contribute to the local ecosystem.
ProLogium’s teams have come together to launch this project and are working flat out to prepare the opening of the new factory in Dunkirk as part of a public consultation which starts in September. It is our wish to work in harmony with the citizens of Dunkirk in the near future. Together we will contribute to the transition towards sustainable and green transport.”
