CATL’s battery unit operates in compliance with COVID curbs

SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Chinese battery maker Contemporary Amperex Technology Co’s Yibin plant, which mainly supplies battery cells to Tesla Shanghai, said it is operating in compliance with COVID-19 control measures required by local government.

The Yibin plant is operating under a so-called closed-loop management that required workers to sleep near production lines and out of contact with others outside.
