To this day, SK Innovation has been actively engaging in petroleum production across the globe. As Korea’s first successful developer of LiBS, it has kept its edge in both the information and electronic material industry, and the automotive sector. SK Energy is Korea’s number one refinery, while our chemicals subsidiary, SK Global Chemical, has been at the forefront of innovation in the petrochemical industry. SK Lubricants supplies high-quality base oils to over 50 countries and finished lubricant products to 25.

SK Innovation started the development of lithium-ion batteries for hybrid electric vehicles in 2005 and moved on to production in 2006. The first milestone came in 2010, when we were selected as a battery provider for Hyundai’s BlueOn, Korea’s first electric vehicle, and Kia’s Ray. Only a year later, we started supplying batteries to SLS AMG E-Cell, the first electric supercar of Mercedes-AMG. This is how SK Innovation has become a proven, trusted and widely used partner for automakers across the globe.

Technology, production:

SK on Hungary is SK Innovation’s first European battery plant to produce third-generation battery cells for Global auto maker using pouch technology. The geographical location of the city – the proximity of the German and Czech, as well as Slovak and domestic automotive plants, as well as the proximity of logistics routes -, the availability of skilled and experienced workforce and the attractive offer of state investment played a decisive role in the selection of the Komárom production site.

Battery cells are manufactured through three major technological processes: Electrode, Assembly, and Formation. The product of the Electrode is the anode and cathode electrode, which is placed in a reel in the Assembly, where the cell is assembled in four major steps. The semi-finished product leaving the Assembly process acquires its final shape and characteristics during the Formation, the latter by charging and recharging.
