Smyrna, TN

JESCO’s Mechanical-Electrical Division provide the mechanical design and the mechanical & plumbing installation for Yates Construction on Nissan North America’s Electric Vehicle Battery Plant in Smyrna, Tennessee. One of four of its kind in the world, this facility supports the production of the world’s first electric vehicle competitive with standard gasoline sedans.

The plant consists of a pre-engineered metal building with a standing seam roof and includes 9,800 yards of concrete, 380 tons of steel, and a large clean-dry room. Between entering the dehumidification units and leaving the heat recovery wheel, grains of moisture per pound are reduced from 132 to one, and the facility is capable of producing thousands of advanced-technology batteries each year.

In addition to the Smyrna facility, JESCO has also provided mechanical and plumbing services for Nissan in their Mississippi and Mexico facilities.
