Introducing BAM-2

Group14, the global leader in silicon battery material manufacturing, is building the world’s largest factory of its kind in Moses Lake, WA. BAM-2 is expected to produce thousands of tons of SCC55™ annually, help fuel the US economy, and create hundreds of local jobs, laying the foundation for an American silicon battery ecosystem.

About BAM-2

The world’s largest silicon battery materials factory

Producing locally at global commercial scale
Two modules, each capable of delivering 2,000 tons of SCC55™ per year, are expected to begin manufacturing in 2024. We expect to build additional modules that will be capable of producing enough SCC55™ to power hundreds of thousands of EVs, millions of consumer electronics, electrified aviation, and other end-market applications.
About BAM-2

Investing in America

Enabling supply chain resiliance
Group14’s BAM-2 will help enable a domestic battery supply chain, putting Washington state on the map for U.S. battery manufacturing. More than $30 million of U.S. steel will be used to complete the construction of BAM-2’s first two modules.

BAM-2 Updates

Secretary Granholm visits

In February 2024, shortly after heavy equipment was installed, Group14 hosted Washington state governor Jay Inslee, U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, and U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell to tour BAM-2, now structurally complete at five stories tall. We discussed how Group14 is transforming American battery materials manufacturing and investment in high-paying clean energy jobs.

Momentum accelerates

Teams in Moses Lake continue their breakneck construction pace. The second module looks more like the structurally complete first module and the Operations Building core and shell are complete – this is where Group14 will monitor the advanced silicon battery materials factory when it comes online later this year.
BAM-2 Updates

Major equipment installed

By early 2024, we installed most of the heavy equipment in the first module, which now has exterior panels on all five walls. As the second module topped out, concrete walls could be seen on its first, second, and third floors, with equipment installation and steel coating also well underway.

Roof installed on the first module

By November 2023, we completed the steel structure and topped out on the fifth floor of BAM-2’s first module which could be seen from the I-90 corridor. Amid these milestones, we completed the contract for our $100M U.S. DOE award.

Construction begins

After breaking ground in April 2023, we quickly began pouring concrete and started construction on BAM-2 in Moses Lake—which will soon to be the world’s largest silicon battery materials factory. By September, steel was in the ground and our first module was on the rise.

We began construction in 2023 and expect to have our first two BAM modules completed in 2024, at which point BAM-2 will begin manufacturing SCC55™. We will continue to grow and anticipate building more factory modules and facilities in the coming years.

BAM-2’s first two modules will each enable 2,000 tons per year of SCC55™, with additional modules in coming years expected to produce enough material to power hundreds of thousands of EVs, consumer electronics, electrified aviation, and more.
