The Paint Shop was the very first building to undergo construction at Gigafactory Berlin. The robust design will house Geico Taikisha's zero-impact paint shop. Due to the ban on drone flight from the north side of the building, for a few weeks we could not see how the interior works were progressing, but today we were lucky enough to get a glimpse from frames of a new video.
flybrandenburg/YouTube managed to fly the drone close enough to see some detail. As you can see from the photos, internal work is progressing rapidly. The floors already have cement screed, so the rooms look very neat. It can also be seen that pipes have already been installed in some places along the columns.
You can see that there are many boxes with equipment on the floor. In early December, the State Environmental Agency authorized Tesla to begin installing equipment at Giga Berlin's paint shop. In connection with obtaining preliminary permission, the company began to install equipment that had been at the construction site for some time in warehouses nearby.
The installation of air ventilation systems has already begun in one section of the Paint Shop. There are ventilation pipes installed on one of the walls. There are many boxes in this room with equipment that will be installed there soon.
Tesla Giga Berlin will get the world's most advanced paint shop. Using the new painting technology, Tesla cars will have a special, attractive, and lively look, as the shop will be able to apply paint in three layers. Several layers of paint give the color a realistic depth, which makes the colors brighter than possible with traditional paint systems.
The paint shop equipment will be supplied by Geico Taikisha, a world leader in the design and construction of turnkey automated body paint shops. With the Pardis Project, launched in 2005, Geico Taikisha was the world’s first company to offer a zero environmental impact paint shop, reducing consumption by 70%. The Smart Paintshop by Geico revolutionizes auto body paint shops with innovative and energy-efficient 4.0 technologies. It received the SurCar Cannes Innovation Award for the best research and innovation worldwide.
