Swedish battery supplier Northvolt has announced that it will create 350 new jobs at its production facility and R&D centre in Gdańsk over the next 18 months. The company is to invest $200 million (€163.66 million) in the project. The company has received financing for the implementation of its investments from sources such as Vestas, Siemens, ABB, BMW, Scania as well as loans from the European Investment Bank and an investment from Goldman Sachs, with a total value of more than €1 billion.

Northvolt was founded in Sweden in 2016. Currently, Northvolt employs 150 people in the city of Gdańsk.

In October 2018, Northvolt announced creation of 100 jobs related to an investment in a battery module assembly plant, consisting of battery cells, electronic control and temperature control systems, and special housings, which are then used in energy storage systems or industrial mining machines.
