Hyundai SK Battery
Hyundai is partnering with SK Battery to build a new battery plant in Bartow County, bringing 3,500 new jobs to the county.
Project Description / Details
Hyundai Motor Group and SK On are following up on their MoU regarding cell supply for Hyundai electric cars made in the USA. The carmaker now announced constructing a joint battery plant with SK On in Georgia, a state that has been scoring e-mobility contracts lately.
Hyundai and SK On have selected a site in Bartow County, which is 45 miles north of Atlanta and 65 miles south of Chattanooga, Tennessee (where Volkswagen is building electric cars). Production will start in 2025, and the partners have yet to disclose planned capacities.
Officials say the new facility will be one of the largest economic development projects in Georgia history and will invest approximately $4 to $5 billion into Bartow County.
Plateau Excavation started this project with over 200 pieces of equipment on this 600-acre site, earthmoving over 14 million cubic yards.
