Additional Information

Magna Energy Storage (M.E.S.), a Czech joint-stock company, has officially opened a new plant for the production of high-capacity batteries in the František industrial zone in Horní Suchá near the city of Havířov and plans to employ between 1,200 and 1,500 people in the horizon of five years. One of the most environmentally friendly and modern factories in the world for the production of unique Czech HE3DA batteries is to start commercial production at the beginning of 2021. The factory will create large energy repositories for companies, but also smaller ones for households. The construction and technology of the factory cost approximately CZK 1.4 billion (EUR 52 million).
