EV battery Gigaplant gives Northumberland jobs boost

Global construction specialist ISG is set to start construction of a new 2.7m sq ft ‘gigafactory’ for Britishvolt, the British electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturer, in Northumberland.

The project, worth an estimated £300m, will create more than 2,500 jobs during its construction once it begins in late autumn/early winter 2021.

Richard McDonell, Britishvolt Project Director, said in Construction Enquirer: “Today is a historic day as it marks the start of construction on the UK’s premier Gigaplant, Britishvolt – a landmark event for UK manufacturing and the automotive industry on the road to zero.”

Peter Millett, High Tech Managing Director for ISG’s Engineering Services business added: “The positive momentum, passion and sense of genuine excitement that underpins this nationally important project is driving the entire team forward at pace, and this significant construction milestone demonstrates our collective commitment to UK manufacturing and to supporting communities across Northumberland.”
