The fit out of ITM Power’s new 1GW factory in Sheffield, UK will begin tomorrow, the energy storage and clean fuel company said today.
It includes an extension to the existing offices, extension of the stack manufacturing and production areas, as well as a test room for factory acceptance testing of products, all coupled with a 5MW power supply on site for factory testing of products.
The factory will enable ITM Power, through standardisation, modularisation and the employment of world class practices to reach a capacity of 1GW within three years.
The programme of works, to be carried out by Clegg Group, will last 30 weeks and the site will be ready for occupation in Q3 2020 by staff, and open to visitors shortly after that.
Graham Cooley, CEO, commented: “I am delighted that this milestone has been achieved and look forward to welcoming Clegg on site in early January.”
“This fit out will see ITM Power undertaking state-of-the-art manufacturing and reducing costs and lead times to access the many opportunities arising from the joint venture with Linde.”
“I look forward to welcoming shareholders to the site in Q3 2020 to see the factory in operation.”
