2023 has been targeted as the start of production in Britain's first Gigaplant, one of Europe's largest manufacturing plants, situated on the old coal stocking yard of the former Blyth Power Station in Cambois, Northumberland.

The 93 hectare site will co-locate key supply chain partners and sustainable low-carbon energy production systems to manufacture and distribute world-leading lithium-ion batteries using sustainable, highly advanced manufacturing techniques. The main project will comprise a new build manufacturing facility, building-related MEP, process plant, office and clean room space, as well as associated infrastructure works. Planning consent was granted for the scheme in July 2021 and construction commenced on site in Q3 2021.
