Volvo Group (NASDAQ: VLVLY) and Samsung SDI Co. Ltd. (KSE:006400) will jointly develop batteries for Volvo's electric trucks. The Swedish truck maker delivered its first battery-powered FE refuse truck and FL straight truck in February to European customers. Third-party logistics hauler NFI Industries expects to receive the first electric VNR later this year for testing as part of the 16-member Volvo LIGHTS consortium working on all aspects of electro-mobility in California.
SANTIAGO/SEOUL, June 21(Reuters) - South Korea's POSCO has pulled out of a project to build battery parts in Chile, the Asian steelmaker said, little more than a year after winning guaranteed access to cheap lithium from top producer Albemarle. POSCO, together with partner Samsung SDI, won a 2018 Chilean government tender to build a battery-parts factory in the country's northern desert in exchange for a 27-year supply of low-cost lithium. The problem, POSCO told Reuters, is that the project it proposed requires lithium hydroxide, a type of the metal increasingly favored by makers of batteries for electric vehicles (EV) but one not produced by Albemarle in Chile.
Samsung initially agreed to deliver batteries for just over 20 gigawatt hours, enough to power 200,000 cars with 100 kilowatt hour packs, before different views on production volume and schedule emerged during detailed negotiations, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the talks are confidential. The impasse cut pledged supplies to less than 5 gigawatt hours, they said. Access to vast amounts of batteries to power a growing number of electric vehicles has emerged as a new battleground for global automakers amid capacity constraints, supply bottlenecks and limited access to raw materials.
