It has an initial annual production capacity of 13 gigawatt-hours and is planned to be gradually expanded to 40 gigawatt-hours. The German plant in Kaiserslautern is scheduled to start up in 2025 with a similar initial capacity of 13.4 gigawatt-hours, increasing to 40 gigawatt-hours by 2030. Together with the Italian plant in Termoli of the same size, the total capacity of the three plants is expected to eventually reach 120 gigawatt-hours per year.
