Green bus to get batteries for Liotech plant  (Source: EVworld)
Plant will make batteries for EVs and more

The world's largest lithium battery production plant has opened in Russia. The Liotech plant, which is a joint venture between RUSSANO and a Chinese holding company called Thunder Sky, is located near Novosibirsk and the total investment in the plant has been 13.5 billion rubles. The massive plant measures 40,000 square meters.
 
The Liotech will make batteries in various capacities for different uses including in the EV transport industry. The lithium iron phosphate batteries produced at the plant will be 200Ah, 300Ah, and 700Ah.
 
The new Liotech plant will have a capacity of nearly one million batteries each year. That would be enough to supply batteries for 500,000 electric buses. Liotech's batteries will be known for high energy density and can work in a wide range of temperatures. The batteries that are used in transport are said to be capable of being used in the electric power industry for ten to 15 years after they are no longer usable in EVs.
 
"The new factory is an outstanding example of the local impact of transferring the foreign high technology. It has led to construction of modern production facilities. When plant capacity has been met, more than 500 individuals will be employed. In realizing a program to replace imports, we are creating an entire cluster of new high-tech production for materials and components related to the batteries and also an engineering center which is an excellent synergy," RUSNANO Managing Director Sergey Polikarpov said.
 
Uses for batteries made at the Liotech plant, other than EVs and electricity storage, include mobile emergency power and uninterruptable power supplies. The firm's batteries have no memory effects after lots of charge and discharge cycles.
 
The service life for the batteries in an EV will be more than 600,000 kilometers.

The Russians did say they would take over the world. It looks like they've done it.




Patents? What are those?

Transferred how, exactly?
