Advanced battery-technology and deep-technology startup company, Log9 Materials has unveiled India's first indigenously-developed cell manufacturing facility at the Log9 Materials campus in Jakkur, Bengaluru.
The feat achieved by Log9 Materials is a step forward in the right direction for the country to become self-reliant in terms of cell manufacturing and cell manufacturing technology. Also, it meets the nation's goal to become self-reliant (AatmanirbharBharat).
Speaking about India's first indigenously-developed cell manufacturing facility by Log9 Materials, it is the largest cell manufacturing plant in entire South-East Asia.
Given the fact that most of the batteries and cells used in India are imported from other countries, a cell manufacturing plant of such a large scale is a major step forward for the country as it will reduce the country's dependency on other countries for batteries and cells.
The inauguration of the Log9 Materials' cell manufacturing plant at Jakkur also marked the startup's 7th Anniversary and the company proudly referred to the inauguration of India's first indigenously-developed cell manufacturing facility as "Day Zero".
Speaking about India's first indigenously-developed cell manufacturing facility built by Log9 Materials, the new cell manufacturing facility is built to produce a peak cell production capacity of 50MWh.
However, Log9 materials are planning to scale up the production capacity of the facility to 5GWh over a period the next 3 to 5 years.
At the Day Zero inauguration event, Dr K Sivan, Ex-Chairperson, Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) was present as the Chief Guest, and Smt. Gunjan Krishna, IAS, Commissioner, Department of Industries & Commerce, Government of Karnataka was the Guest of Honour. Whereas other notable dignitaries and guests present included Log9's investors, advisors, business partners and ecosystem partners, including senior leaders and representatives from companies like Amara Raja Batteries Limited (ARBL), CBC, Umicore, and BluSmart.
Speaking at the inauguration of the facility, Dr K Sivan, Ex-Chairperson, ISRO drew a parallel between ISRO founder Dr Vikram Sarabhai's vision with Log9's vision for India's future advancement. "Just as Dr Sarabhai many years back understood and laid emphasis on indigenous innovation to advance and reap large scale benefits of space-tech, similarly Log9's pathbreaking indigenous research and infrastructure development shall bring India closer to self-reliance in energy storage and EV sectors in the near future,"
Dr Akshay Singhal, Co-Founder & CEO, Log9 Materials said, "We at Log9 are extremely proud and happy to launch India's first cell manufacturing line, which reflects a giant leap forward in empowering India with all the flexibility and scale that would be required to give the country the right impetus for ushering its EV-led future."
Log9 Materials also claimed that the RapidX battery packs will be available in the market in the next 3 to 6 months time period and also claimed that these battery packs can charge 9X faster, 9X battery life and also provide 9X performance.
In addition to that, the RapidX battery packs are claimed to be extremely durable as these battery packs are tested to operate between temperatures ranging from -30°C to 60°C.
Mr Kartik Hajela, Co-Founder & COO, Log9 Materials added, "It is ironical but true that India despite being a talent-dense economy still starves of grounds-up innovation in the field of deep-tech and EV-tech. When we at Log9 started our journey, we could have either borrowed from what was present in the market and further built on it; but we instead chose to work on a blank canvas, and over the years, with multiple trials, errors and failures, we have been able to better our product and technologies."
Thoughts About Log9's First Indigenously-Developed Cell Manufacturing Facility
Log9's new indigenously-developed cell manufacturing facility at Jakkur will make the country one more step closer to becoming self-reliant in terms of cell manufacturing technology. Moreover, it will also reduce the country's dependency on other countries for batteries.
