A complaint from environmental organizations about Tesla Giga Berlin's early permission to start system tests was rejected by the Berlin-Brandenburg Supreme Administrative Court. This decision is final and not subject to appeal.
In early June, Tesla Giga Berlin received a permit issued by the State Environmental Administration (LfU), which allowed system tests to be carried out. It includes authorization to test the functionality of the systems in the Paint Shop, Casting, and Body in White. In addition, the installation of wastewater treatment tanks has been agreed upon. Permitted functional tests include treatment and pressure testing of system technology, signal testing, filling systems, and functional testing of machines, apparatus, containers, and burners.
However, environmental associations Nabu and Green League, whose participation in the process is questioned even by local politicians, filed a complaint about the suspension of testing. This complaint was dismissed as it had no compelling reasons. But, this did not stop environmental organizations and they appealed with an urgent application to the Supreme Administrative Court of Berlin-Brandenburg.
On July 14, the Supreme Administrative Court unequivocally dismissed the complaint and announced that this decision was final and therefore not subject to further appeal. In addition, the court ruled that the complaint could not be complacent as it was inadmissible. Such a court decision once again shows that Nabu and Green League deliberately intended to delay the process, trying in every possible way to harm Tesla, even if there is no real reason for this.
