Engineering services company Stantec has been chosen by Taiwanese lithium-ion battery manufacturer E-One Moli Energy to construct a lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing plant in British Columbia, Canada.
Stantec will provide planning, design, electrical, and engineering works for the project, as well as sustainability consulting, building commissioning, and environmental services.
The project is estimated to have a value of C$1bn ($731m) and is expected to generate approximately 350 new jobs while retaining more than 100 existing positions.
The plant, which will be powered by British Columbia’s renewable energy supply, is said to become Canada’s largest manufacturing plant for high-performance lithium-ion battery cells. It is expected to generate roughly 135 million battery cells annually.
This new facility is planned to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold and Net Zero Carbon certifications.
It will also have a seven-storey mass wood office and research and development section, along with a fully integrated green roof.
