Romeo Power Technology, an energy storage technology company, completed its fully-automated 113,000 square-foot lithium-ion battery pack manufacturing facility near downtown Los Angeles.
Romeo Power Technology’s new factory is slated to produce 1 gigawatt hour by end of year and will quadruple capacity by 2018 to 4 gigawatt hours.
All Romeo lithium-ion battery packs for EVs and stationary applications are designed, engineered, tested and produced on site, and the facility features the only research and development and testing lab on the West Coast.
The battery packs are designed and optimized based on specific power and energy density needs, ranging in size from 1 kWh to 1 MWh.
The company currently has contracts and design agreements in place that span U.S. and European automakers, manufacturers of motorcycles and forklifts, industrial players such as Power Designers, robotics companies, among others. Romeo is now ramping production of its lithium-ion battery pack and stationary storage technologies and is fulfilling orders at full capacity.
