Tesla Giga Berlin Construction Continues As The Water Shortage Problem Solved

One of the biggest problems associated with the construction of Giga Berlin for local residents is the issue of the water supply of the plant. But at the moment, all relevant decisions have been made, and this is no longer an obstacle.

On Monday evening, in Rüdersdorf (Märkisch-Oderland), a meeting of the responsible water association Strausberg-Erkner (WSE) was held. As announced and approved at the meeting, there is currently the required amount of drinking water. The association said that about four million cubic meters of water are available, which more than covers all the water needs of the region.

In addition, it was announced that the Berliner Wasserbetriebe is currently accepting a written commitment to treat the wastewater generated at the Münchehofe treatment plant in the Hoppegarten community.

Earlier, as one of the options, the construction of a separate line from the Tesla site in Freienbrink to the existing WSE network in Erkner was considered, and the network had to be “adjusted” accordingly, explained the head of the Henner Haferkorn association.

Before this decision was made, the water association Strausberg-Erkner has applied for an increase in production capacity. At the same time, Tesla has reduced its water requirements. Both parties' actions reveal that the water association and the automaker are determined to figure out a solution to the people of Grünheide’s concerns about Giga Berlin's water supply.

"We are also working to ensure plenty of clean drinking water through water-saving measures in the factory as well as a structural solution with and for the community in the medium term," said Tesla.

Meanwhile, site preparation for the future Tesla factory shows impressive progress. The pine plantation has been cleaned and the roots of trees are being dug up and chopped at the moment.

Last week, Frauke Zelt, spokesperson for the Ministry of the Environment, reported that Tesla received permission to level the ground on the site. The company can remove the topsoil from the cleared area and level it.

Upper soil removal of up to 12 inches was allowed. The State Department of Environmental Protection has announced that only soil materials suitable for use in water protection zones can be introduced. The company must comply with environmental requirements when working.

For several days, Tesla leveled the land on part of the territory, and now it takes on the features of a real construction site. You can see how much the site for Giga Berlin has changed, the progress is truly impressive.

 

Despite the fear of the coronavirus, the planning and construction of the planned Giga Berlin will go according to plan. According to Mayor of Grünheid, Arne Christiani, this is will not delay the construction of the planned Tesla's Giga Berlin from the current point of view.
