Honeywell to build first Volts gigafactory in UAE for battery cell delivery

Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON) and Volts United Arab Emirates (UAE) announce plans to join forces for the construction of the first gigafactory in Abu Dhabi focused on delivering battery cells for Residential Energy Storage Systems (RESS). Building on sustainability discussions that took place at COP28 in the UAE, the gigafactory is slated for completion by the end of 2026.
As part of the collaboration, Honeywell will provide advanced solutions for equipment and software – with a focus on factory automation, digitalisation and closed loop control systems – while serving as a key technological partner for Volts.

George Bou Mitri, VP & GM, Honeywell Industrial Automation MENA, said, “There is a clear link between the UAE’s commitment to sustainability and Honeywell’s global focus on its three megatrends, in this instance specifically the energy transition. This collaboration with Volts will serve to further the nation’s drive toward sustainable and renewable sources of energy and support the realisation of the closing agreement at COP28, which helped lay the framework for an equitable energy transition.”
 
Operating in the Middle East for more than 70 years, Honeywell’s solutions blend physical products with advanced software to create value for customers while supporting long-term national development visions and economic diversification across the region. The company has a range of technologies geared towards supporting the sustainability – and wider environmental, social and governance (ESG) – objectives of customers across the region.
