France-based battery cell producer Verkor has gained the support of Capgemini SE, a French multinational corporation that provides consulting, technology, professional and outsourcing services, for its plan to build a 16 GWh battery cell manufacturing facility in Rodez, about 150 km northeast of Toulouse, in the Occitanie department of Aveyron.

Capgemini will bring its expertise in digital transformation, technology services and engineering to harness the full potential of digital and data for excellence in low-carbon battery manufacturing, Verkor said.

“One of the goals of Capgemini is to improve the manufacturing process for Verkor’s batteries, reducing waste and inefficiency, but also improving the environmental and economic performance of Verkor’s business model,” the company further explained.
