Porsche to develop 3D printed battery gigafactories for Sakuu

Porsche Consulting will develop lithium metal and solid-state battery manufacturer Sakuu’s first 3D printed battery gigafactory for commercial production.



“We’re thrilled to become an integral part of Sakuu’s journey as it embarks on building gigafactories that break all norms in commercial-scale energy manufacturing,” said Gregor Harman, CEO of Porsche Consulting, North America. “Their seminal and scalable additive manufacturing approach can bring incredible innovation to major industries transitioning to new energy solutions— automotive and beyond.”

Porsche Consulting’s expertise in large-scale factory design, particularly in the automotive space, will enable Sakuu gigafactories that prioritize sustainable design, while maximizing manufacturing efficiencies that can be replicated efficiently across locations around the globe.

Sakuu’s first plant design will accommodate roll-to-roll manufacturing for its novel line of safe, high energy density lithium-metal batteries, followed by a series of first-of-their-kind plants utilizing Sakuu’s pioneering Kavian™ platform solution to produce its Swift Print™ solid-state battery line via advanced multi-material additive manufacturing.

“With respect for its deep expertise in automotive plant ideation and execution, we ultimately selected Porsche Consulting due to our belief that its team exhibits mastery in designing large-scale manufacturing plants—start to finish,” said Robert Bagheri, Founder and CEO at Sakuu. “We look forward to breaking ground on our first gigafactory with Porsche Consulting’s contributions and support.”
