Listen: Thermal rush behind the fire at Northvolt’s factory

  • On Saturday morning, the rescue service in Västerås was alerted to Northvolt’s factory in Västerås where a fire broke out in a number of batteries.

  • The rescue service first thought that the fire was caused by an explosion, but later stated that it was a so-called thermal rush.

  • Fredrik Eriksson, rescue leader at the rescue service in Västerås, however, sees no general fire risk in Swedish battery factories – as long as you follow safety routines.
