Log9 indicates production hit on delayed visas to Chinese experts: Report
Log9 Materials' Co-founder and Director Pankaj Sharma said that the delay could practically destabilise production.
Log9 Materials has said that its production facility at Bengaluru could be affected due to the late arrrival of Chinese experts on the back of delayed visa application approvals by the New Delhi Government.
"If Chinese engineers don't arrive on time, then our cell line production will get impacted, the lithium ion battery manufacturer's Co-founder and Director, Pankaj Sharma informed Reuters.
He said that he did not know by how much, but it could practically destabilise production, the newswire reported.
Log9 depends on engineers from China to set up imported machinery and upgrade existing ones at its facility. A delay of about four months in the issue of visas would hamper the speed at which its factory reaches peak production levels, Sharma added.
Previously this month, an Indian government official said some manufacturers who rely on Chinese expertise have sought faster approval for visa applications of their vendors from China.
Log9's Bengaluru factory, its only manufacturing unit currently, has an annual installed capacity of 250 MWh of battery production, the newswire further stated.
Its batteries power the electric fleet of logistics giants such as Hala Mobility, Quantum Energy, Maersk and Blue Dart among others.
