(JW Insights) May 10 -- Major Chinese power battery maker Eve Energy(亿纬锂能) made a deal with Hungary's local government to buy a piece of land in the country to build a battery factory, reported Yicai Global.

The operating entity Eve Energy set up in Hungary will buy 450,000 square meters of land in Debrecen for EUR12.9 million ($14.2 million) to build a cylindrical battery plant, announced the company based in Huizhou of southern China's Guangdong Province on May 9.

Eve Energy announced in March last year that it had reached a preliminary investment agreement with the Huangary's government of Debrecen to build its first European plant there.
