– The exclusive partnership is intended to promote services in process and plant design
Italvolt Spa, a company founded by Lars Carlstrom, has entered into an exclusive partnership with EQUANS *, the newly created European market leader for process and environmental efficiency.

Innovation and efficiency are among the core values of Italvolt’s battery production, which will be located at the former Olivetti site in Scarmagno in northern Italy. The site is strategically located at the crossroads between the east-west and north-south Mediterranean corridors.
