Tesla Giga Nevada and Panasonic bring engineers from Japan to improve battery production by 10%. Some engineers have already been deployed to Giga Nevada.
Now, ten percent of battery production improvement is about the equivalent of one production line at Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada, which Tesla operates with Panasonic.
But, Panasonic isn't planning to add a new production line at Tesla Giga Nevada for the battery production. Rather, Panasonic is reportedly looking to improve battery production at Giga Nevada through optimizations.
Thus, according to a Nikkei Asia report, Panasonic is planning on sending production supervisors from Japan to Giga Nevada to improve the factory’s efficiency. By June, dozens of staff from Panasonic Japan had reportedly been deployed at Gigafactory Nevada to provide assistance and training to the plant’s employees.
