The construction of Tesla Giga Berlin is advancing rapidly and now, on the site, an obvious result is noticeable.

This week, Tesla presented new documents for a planned factory near Berlin, according to the State Department of the Environment. These documents differ from those presented in December 2019.

Major changes include:

  • support by piles of some parts of the foundation;
  • reduction of water consumption by the plant;
  • a change in the overall design of the factory, thanks to which the space will be used better than previously planned.

The State Environmental Agency is currently considering new documents. After that, they should be publicly displayed at the State Environmental Agency in Frankfurt (Oder), in the municipalities of Grünheide and Spreenhagen and in the city of Erkner, and also published on the Internet.

Economy Minister Jörg Steinbach suggests, that the project will be approved. “It all depends on the quality of the documents submitted,” Steinbach said on Wednesday at the Economic Committee of the State Parliament in Potsdam. If everything is “in place”, he will not rule out that “something like a shell” can already be seen in September.

At the moment, a second tower crane has appeared on the Tesla site.

According to the drone video, construction work is progressing rapidly. Trucks with steel often arrive on the territory to build the foundation. In addition to the construction of buildings, road construction continues.

Tesla plans to begin production of Model Y from mid-2021, but if progress continues at such a pace, then probably the production will begin ahead of schedule.
