The article has been updated with the information received.

Tesla is planning further site expansion for its new plant in Grünheide. For this, it will be necessary to further clear the industrial forest that is located on the territory. 

The head of the emission control unit in the Ministry of the Environment, Frank Beck, said that they are checking the requirements for permission right now. Beck made this comment Wednesday, as part of the Landtag economic committee in Potsdam, according to Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

At the moment, about 90 hectares of forest have been cleared on an area of ​​300 hectares. Tesla plans to add another 100 hectares. This area will be used for the construction of a logistics area. At present, it is being clarified whether this requires an environmental impact assessment. The image provided by @tobilindh/Twitter shows the alleged cleaning.

The area that has already been cleared is marked in red, and at the moment, construction work is underway there - Phase 1. Phase 1b of forest clearing is highlighted in pink, Phase 1c is highlighted in green.

    Final environmental approval for Tesla's Giga Berlin could be obtained before the end of the year, according to Minister for Economic Affairs, Labor and Energy Jörg Steinbach.

    "When the approval for the entire project comes, is closely related to the development plan procedure. Both should be signed and sealed in mid-December," he said.

     



    The minister believes that, in the next ten years, Giga Berlin can employ up to 40,000 people, depending on the market situation. "In perspective, the Tesla factory in Grünheide could--depending on the market ramp-up--have up to 40,000 employees," Steinbach said.
