From the City of Townsville website - https://www.townsville.qld.gov.au/about-cou...-charging-ahead

Date published: 20 March 2019

QUOTE
Two Townsville-based firms have joined the project team to build the lithium-ion battery plant proposed for the city.

GHD and Douglas Partners are now engaged through the Imperium3 consortium to build the $2 billion battery plant, which would position Townsville as an international and national leader in advanced manufacturing.

Imperium3 has also established a local office in Townsville to coordinate phase 2 project activities and engage with local contractors.

Imperium3 is a consortium of Australian and international companies working together to build the lithium-ion battery plant.

Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill said the lithium-ion battery plant would charge the city’s economy for decades.

“This is a project that will create thousands of direct and indirect jobs for in Townsville and reinvigorate our city’s manufacturing industries,” Cr Hill said.

“The battery plant project continues to progress and the opening of Imperium3’s local office is a very important milestone.

“More locals are going to be working on this project to transition our city into an international and national leader in advanced manufacturing.”

Phase two works have commenced and include technical investigations into soils, water and other environmental matters. Other works being undertaken include planning for traffic and transport, construction and finance.

Imperium3 have met with Council staff for a pre-lodgement meeting in relation to the project’s development application.

Magnis Energy Technologies managing director Marc Vogts said the project was ramping up – from international partners to the local project team.

“It is great to see the plans of the Townsville battery plant taking shape and realising enthusiastic local support,” he said.

The Queensland Government’s Department of State Development has contributed more than $ 3million to a feasibility study for the project.

Imperium3 Townsville Director Mitchell Tolhurst said: “we’re excited to be progressing the bankable feasibility study for the 15GWh lithium-ion battery manufacturing facility which is a significant milestone to establish high-tech manufacturing in Australia, bringing much needed and highly anticipated jobs to the region.”

The $2 billion battery plant will manufacture next generation lithium-ion battery cells locally, while targeting rapidly emerging industries such as electric vehicles, home power storage and industrial-scale uses.

Germans still dithering on developing their own GF - too much talk - not enough action. Meanwhile the Chinese are putting their money where their mouth is.
Running On Empty
Germany Lags Behind Asia in E-Car Battery Race

QUOTE
The Chinese conglomerate CATL wants to build Europe's largest electric car battery plant near Erfurt, Germany. Having failed to build a gigafactory of their own, German carmakers are worried the project represents a mortal threat.

Plans to Catch Up

The German market's lack of battery production isn't just worrying for car company executives. Politicians are also concerned. Federal Economics Minister Peter Altmaier, a member of the CDU, has specifically made an expansion of battery manufacturing a goal of his new industrial policy offensive. Altmaier would like consortia to be created and has set aside 1 billion euros for addressing the issue.

He would also like to see trade associations emerge on a European level. EU Commissioner Marošs Sefcovic has concluded that 20 gigafactories are needed to strongly counteract Asian dominance. French President Emmanuel Macron announced on Wednesday that, in the coming five years, 700 million euros would be invested in the construction of two battery factories. One of them is to be built in Germany. "We need a European wake-up call," Macron said.

So far, plans by German consortia have been considerably more modest. Battery-maker BMZ, based near Frankfurt, and Aachen-based scientist Günther Schuh plan on building a factory with a tiny capacity of 1 gigawatt hour by 2024, possibly in North Rhine-Westphalia, but that's yet to be decided.

Director Resignation
QUOTE
Magnis Energy Technologies Limited (“Magnis” or the “Company”) (ASX: MNS) announces
that Dr. Ulrich Bez has resigned from the Board of Directors. His resignation was submitted
and accepted by the Board and is effective 28 February 2019. The Board would like to thank
Ulrich for his services to the Company and wish him every success in his future endeavours.

The Board expects to make an announcement in the near future regarding an appointment.


and disposed 220k shares on 19 & 21 February 2019 for $64,590 via On-market trade - before his resignation took effect - could have waited until after 28/2/2019 and he would not have been required to tell the world. Wonder what's prompted this?.

The science ministry funds come on top of 1 billion euros earmarked by Economy Minister Peter Altmaier to support company alliances that are ready to invest in a large-scale production of electric car battery cells in Germany.

Announced at the KLiB Batterieforum Deutschland - 23-25 January 2019
Germany launches R&D facility for industrial-scale Li-ion cell manufacturing; €500M in funding
25 January 2019
QUOTE
The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has launched the Battery Cell Research Production Center, a new R&D and large-scale industrial manufacturing plant for lithium-ion cells; the center will receive an investment of €500 million.

The location of the new facility is to be selected by mid-2019, after which the construction phase will begin. Six German cell manufacturers have already pledged their support for the establishment and operation of research production: Leclanché, BMZ Group/ Terra E, Customcells, EAS and Liacon.

The center is part of a strategic drive to develop a German-based mass production of lithium-ion cells necessary to meet the demands of the electrification of transport and storage systems.

The objective of the facility is to act as an enabler for the development of mass industrial production based on state-of-the-art cell chemistry and cell design. The ultimate goal is building a European-based industry capable of minimizing dependence on Asian battery manufacturers.

The new center unites all previous promotion measures and programs for battery research under one roof and builds on existing competencies. The funding is bundled, realigned and coordinated in three modules: material; cells and processes; and battery cell production.

As the largest cell manufacturer within the Consortium, Leclanché will be playing a leading role by bringing industrial-scale cell manufacturing know-how.
