RESPONDING to AMTE Power’s announcement that Dundee is the company’s preferred site for their new battery manufacturing factory, Minister for Business, Trade, Tourism & Enterprise Ivan McKee said:
“The Scottish Government welcomes the news that AMTE Power has selected Dundee as the preferred site for its first Mega Factory.
“Battery technology is critical to many sectors – from transport to industry – in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Today’s announcement builds on AMTE’s current presence in Thurso and has the potential to deliver hundreds of additional sustainable, green jobs, aligning with the Scottish Government’s aims to strengthen Scotland’s position in new markets and industries and a leader in zero emission mobility, generating new, well-paid jobs from a just transition to net zero.
“The Scottish Government will continue to work alongside our Enterprise Agencies and local partners to help support AMTE in progressing their plans.”
