Omni awarded new On-Site Training Center

Omni Architects is designing a new training center for ECTC to support the BlueOval/SK Battery Park in Glendale, Kentucky.

Omni Architects has been selected to design a new On-Site Training Center for ECTC, to support the new Blue Oval/SK Battery Park in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. “A cutting-edge, flexible training facility designed to meet both the initial startup and long-term educational and training needs at BlueOvalSK is critical to the success of the most significant economic development project in Kentucky’s history,” Gov. Andy Beshear said in the release. “Once constructed, it will provide the classrooms used to train the employees who will produce these electric vehicle batteries. It will also include the laboratories that will be used in research and development of this advanced technology, as well as provide offices and meeting space for the faculty and staff.”
The training facility will educate the workforce for BlueOval SK Battery Park, which is the site of twin lithium-ion battery manufacturing plants. The battery park is a joint venture between Ford Motor Co. and SK Innovations to produce batteries for Ford’s next generation of electric vehicles.
