One of the most ambitious projects presented in this field is named VENERGY+, headed by Envision, Acciona and Silence which includes the participation of Teknia. The VENERGY+ project is expected to invest €2.5 billion in the construction of a giant battery factory in Navalmoral de la Mata (Extremadura), which will be operational in 2025.

The goal of this project is developing a battery ecosystem and boosting electric mobility in Spain. Teknia will contribute to this project by developing battery components thanks to its global multi-technology capabilities. The project will involve Aluminum High Pressure Die Casting (HPDC) technology, in which the Group has extensive experience and technological specialization and is crucial for new mobility. This technology is developed at Teknia Ampuero plant, in Cantabria.
