A positive mood on the Energieküste:

Northvolt's construction start spreads optimism

We are Drei!
The official start of construction of Northvolt Drei on 25 March 2024 in Dithmarschen was a lasting highlight for the guests. Numerous representatives of the press also shared the "green economic miracle" that is unfolding on the Energieküste with Schleswig-Holstein and the whole of Germany. 

Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz also celebrated the launch of the important battery cell gigafactory on site. He said: The production of good cars remains the backbone of our industry. "For this we need battery cells made in Germany - made in Europe."

This is how we secure our technological sovereignty and how we secure value creation in Europe.
Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz

Of course, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs Robert Habeck, Minister President of S-H Daniel Günther, Northvolt CEO Peter Carlsson and Northvolt Germany CEO Christopher Haux also celebrated the launch of the most sustainable battery cells in Europe. Optimistic views of the future included.

Many people from Schleswig-Holstein will come back to work here.
Peter Carlsson, CEO Northvolt

We are Drei!

Peter Carlsson sees a huge upswing for the entire region and would like to see many applications from female engineers and technicians for Northvolt Drei. He also hopes that many other tech companies will settle on the Energieküste: "The perfect location, onshore and offshore - right in the centre. And a good place to live."

The start of construction was officially symbolised with a boßel ball toss, which reflects the tradition and community spirit of the region. Energieküste sends its warmest congratulations to everyone who made this milestone possible!
