The new FENECON CarBatteryReFactory in Iggensbach - supported by
the EU Innovation Fund and the Bavarian Economic Development Corporation

Official launch of FENECON CarBatteryReFactory

On 27 March 2024, FENECON’s Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry was offi­ci­al­ly ope­ned. FENECON wel­co­med num­e­rous guests of honour from poli­tics, busi­ness and sci­ence to the inau­gu­ra­ti­on of the spe­cia­li­sed elec­tri­ci­ty sto­rage pro­duc­tion site. Read our press release here.

The Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry will crea­te around 100 new jobs in the regi­on in the long term.

“We are very plea­sed about the gre­at inte­rest in our Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry and would like to thank all guests for their sup­port. For us as a com­pa­ny, the ope­ning is an important milestone.

The mar­ket for lar­ge sto­rage sys­tems in trade and indus­try as well as for solar and char­ging parks is curr­ent­ly gro­wing very dyna­mi­cal­ly. The signi­fi­cant expan­si­on of pro­duc­tion capa­ci­ty for our award-win­ning FENECON Indus­tri­al series the­r­e­fo­re comes at exact­ly the right time and enables us to offer very com­pe­ti­ti­ve pri­ces,” explains Franz-Josef Feil­mei­er, foun­der and CEO.

The 24,000 squa­re met­re FENECON site next to the A3 motor­way with modern pro­duc­tion halls and warehou­ses, deve­lo­p­ment labo­ra­to­ries and offices has suc­cessful­ly gone into ope­ra­ti­on. The pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses have thus been sca­led up in series:

The home sto­rage line has been run­ning sin­ce Janu­ary, with lar­ge-sca­le pro­duc­tion of the FENECON Indus­tri­al models fol­lo­wing in Febru­ary. Only new elec­tric vehic­le bat­te­ries from Ger­man pre­mi­um vehic­le manu­fac­tu­r­ers are used in the com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al sto­rage sys­tems with capa­ci­ties ran­ging from 82 kWh to 1,288 kWh.

The three series sto­rage plat­forms from FENECON ful­ly uti­li­se the many advan­ta­ges of the­se bat­te­ries - such as the high pro­duct qua­li­ty and long ser­vice life, the par­ti­cu­lar­ly high effi­ci­en­cy, the easy trans­por­ta­bi­li­ty and the liquid-based tem­pe­ra­tu­re management.

Modern, sustainable energy concept

It is not only the pro­ducts crea­ted in Iggen­s­bach that are inten­ded to con­tri­bu­te to the 100% ener­gy tran­si­ti­on. The ener­gy for the Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry its­elf is also lar­ge­ly gene­ra­ted from rene­wa­ble sources.

FENECON uti­li­ses a lar­ge amount of roof and faça­de space at the site for the opti­mal, year-round pro­duc­tion of solar power: the roof pho­to­vol­taic sys­tem com­pri­sing almost 800 modu­les has an out­put of 307 kWp, while the around 550 faça­de PV modu­les pro­vi­de 204 kWp. All PV modu­les, inver­ters and the sub­s­truc­tu­re of the faça­de sys­tem come from Ger­man manu­fac­tu­r­ers. In addi­ti­on, two heat pumps pro­vi­de a hea­ting out­put of 250 kW. In sum­mer, the­se can also be ope­ra­ted in coo­ling mode. Two FENECON Indus­tri­al M sys­tems loca­ted on site sup­port the company’s own pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses with tem­po­r­a­ri­ly stored ener­gy (avo­i­ding grid expan­si­on) and peak shaving: The com­bi­ned out­put of both sys­tems is 352 kW, with a capa­ci­ty of 656 kWh. All 29 car parks in the company’s own char­ging park are equip­ped with char­ging sta­ti­ons for elec­tric cars. The com­pa­ny car park is com­ple­te­ly electric.

Short­ly befo­re moving into the Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry, the Bava­ri­an Minis­ter of Sta­te for Housing, Con­s­truc­tion and Trans­port Chris­ti­an Bern­rei­ter (CSU) visi­ted the new FENECON pro­duc­tion site on 1 Decem­ber 2023.

Wolf­gang Hai­der, the first mayor of the muni­ci­pa­li­ty of Iggen­s­bach (UBL), and CSU mem­bers of par­lia­ment Ste­fan Mey­er and Josef Heisl were also guests at the ultra-modern plant in Iggensbach.

FENECON CEO Franz-Josef Feil­mei­er explai­ned the plans for the new site in detail to the guests from the world of poli­tics. Minis­ter of Sta­te Chris­ti­an Bern­rei­ter show­ed his delight at the deve­lo­p­ments in Iggensbach.

In the future, inno­va­tions for the ener­gy tran­si­ti­on - Bat­tery ener­gy sto­rage sys­tems for the home, com­mer­ce and indus­try - will be pro­du­ced in the new factory.

Construction work almost complete:
Moving in at the turn of the year 2023/2024

Right on sche­du­le: after a good year of con­s­truc­tion, the new FENECON site is almost com­ple­te at the begin­ning of Decem­ber. By the end of the month, the respon­si­ble buil­ding aut­ho­ri­ty will be noti­fied of the start of uti­li­sa­ti­on and the fac­to­ry buil­ding will be lar­ge­ly occupied.

Pro­duc­tion can then start at the begin­ning of 2024. The FENECON home sto­rage line will move in first, befo­re indus­tri­al sto­rage sys­tems are also pro­du­ced in lar­ge series from zero, first and second-life vehic­le bat­te­ries in the Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry. The lar­ge indoor cra­ne is alre­a­dy rea­dy for this. The ver­ti­cal pho­to­vol­taic faça­de is almost com­ple­te­ly instal­led. Dry­wall work, the tech­ni­cal fit-out and inte­ri­or fit-out as well as the two-storey office fit-out have been completed.

Our FENECON team is loo­king for­ward to the start of this sus­tainable pro­ject for the con­s­truc­tion of Bat­tery ener­gy sto­rage sys­tems from elec­tric vehic­le bat­te­ries, which is sub­si­di­sed by the EU Inno­va­ti­on Fund and the Bava­ri­an Eco­no­mic Deve­lo­p­ment Agency.

FENECON celebrates topping-out ceremony

FENECON cele­bra­ted the top­ping-out cerem­o­ny in Iggen­s­bach, whe­re the Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry is being built. At the end of 2023, FENECON starts manu­fac­tu­ring lar­ge ener­gy sto­rage sys­tems made from EV-bat­te­ries at the new facility.

After the con­s­truc­tion work had pro­gres­sed accor­ding to sche­du­le and the ear­thworks, cana­li­sa­ti­on, con­cre­te work and instal­la­ti­on of pre­cast con­cre­te ele­ments had been com­ple­ted, the top­ping-out cerem­o­ny was cele­bra­ted in June 2023 - tog­e­ther with the com­pa­nies, trades and pro­ject teams involved. 

“Long live the buil­ders who have given their strength to the con­s­truc­tion.” - From the top­ping-out speech.

Location for the 100% energy transition

In Novem­ber 2022, con­s­truc­tion work began on the future new main site with office buil­ding, pro­duc­tion and warehouse in Iggen­s­bach. The new plant will enable FENECON to increase its pro­duc­tion capa­ci­ties from the end of 2023. 

Modern pro­duc­tion and sto­rage faci­li­ties, deve­lo­p­ment labo­ra­to­ries and offices are being built on the site, which is loca­ted direct­ly on the A3 free­way exit Iggen­s­bach. All par­king lots will be equip­ped with char­ging sta­ti­ons for elec­tric cars. FENECON uses sui­ta­ble roof and faca­de sur­faces for solar power production. 

Indus­tri­al pro­duc­tion is sche­du­led to start at the end of 2023 and grow along with it, for well over 90 new employees, a third of whom are jobs for engi­neers. In 2024, the new office buil­ding oppo­si­te the Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry is to be occu­p­ied and the FENECON main site inaugurated.

Breaking ground for a climate-friendly future

The Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry is being built in Iggen­s­bach, Lower Bava­ria, in the dis­trict of Deg­gen­dorf. The pro­ject is fun­ded with 4.5 mil­li­on euros by the EU Inno­va­ti­on Fund, which sup­ports par­ti­cu­lar­ly sus­tainable and cli­ma­te-fri­end­ly pro­jects.

In addi­ti­on, FENECON recei­ved 1.7 mil­li­on euros from the Bava­ri­an Eco­no­mic Deve­lo­p­ment Cor­po­ra­ti­on for the con­s­truc­tion of the elec­tri­ci­ty sto­rage fac­to­ry. At the future pro­duc­tion site, indus­tri­al sto­rage sys­tems will be manu­fac­tu­red from zero-, first- and second-life vehic­le bat­te­ries from the end of 2023.

FENECON has alre­a­dy been pro­du­cing lar­ge con­tai­ner sto­rage sys­tems from elec­tric vehic­le bat­te­ries sin­ce 2017. Small series pro­duc­tion is curr­ent­ly still taking place at the plant in Künz­ing; indus­tria­liza­ti­on for lar­ge series pro­duc­tion is then to take place at the Car­Bat­tery­Re­Fac­to­ry in Iggensbach.

Grand opening ceremony

FENECON wel­co­med num­e­rous guests of honour from poli­tics, busi­ness and sci­ence to the inau­gu­ra­ti­on of the spe­cia­li­sed elec­tri­ci­ty sto­rage pro­duc­tion site on the 27.03.2024. Click on the head­line to read our press release on the ope­ning cerem­o­ny.

The home sto­rage line at the new plant has been run­ning sin­ce Janu­ary, fol­lo­wed by lar­ge-sca­le pro­duc­tion of the indus­tri­al models in Febru­ary. The factory’s pro­duc­tion capa­ci­ty is around 500 lar­ge sto­rage units and 30,000 home sto­rage units per year.
