French battery startup is to use design tools from Dassault Systèmes to build a digital twin of its proposed gigafactory.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will develop best practices for virtual, end-to-end development of products and manufacturing processes that improve innovation and efficiency, and mitigate technical risks throughout the product lifecycle.
This will use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault with expertise from its transportation and mobility, and energy and materials industries. The deal covers product, process and flow simulation, supplier collaboration and total quality management.

Verkor will use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to build the virtual twins of its batteries and the manufacturing process starting with the first gigafactory in Dunkirk, France.
“Our collaboration with Dassault Systèmes will enable us to address the end-to-end product lifecycle process with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform,” said Christober Raj, Head of Digital, Verkor.
As part of the roadmap, Verkor is deploying Dassault Systèmes’ “High Performance Battery” and “High-Tech Smart Factory” tools for collaboration, modeling and simulation in one virtual environment.
“Batteries are a cornerstone of a more sustainable Europe. Our 3DEXPERIENCE platform and our battery sector solutions empower battery innovation, from their chemistry definition to the design and engineering of the most advanced gigafactory,” said Stéphane Sireau, Vice President, High-Tech Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “As Verkor leads the way in this sector with its ambitious gigafactory project, we can help them leverage virtual twin experiences to accelerate innovation in the development and production of sustainable and high performance battery cells.”
