Construction work has started on the $14 million Battery Innovation Center at the technology park near Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center in southwestern Indiana.

Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman and several local officials took part in a groundbreaking ceremony Monday for the project that is a collaboration among state and local governments and businesses.

The 32,000-square-foot facility is expected to open this year with about 35 staffers working on developing battery technologies. The facility will include a clean room for lithium ion battery prototype manufacturing and a variety of temperature, humidity and altitude chambers for battery cell testing.

The Greene County Daily World said Congressman Larry Bucshon said the Battery Innovation Center can help maximize energy research being done at Crane.
