Tesla Giga Berlin has received another prior approval from the Brandenburg State Environmental Administration, which allows for the installation of parts of technical systems, namely tanks for antifreeze liquid and windshield washer fluid, gas cylinders for storing nitrogen and carbon dioxide, as well as containers for a sprinkler system.

The construction of Giga Berlin is already nearing completion and the main efforts of the company are focused on the installation of equipment and various parts of the system. Tesla received another prior approval from the State Environmental Administration on Wednesday to build its plant. It involves installing a portion of the system technology that the company has claimed. In particular, it is the installation of tanks for antifreeze and windscreen washer fluid. The company can now install the tanks, but commissioning—that is, filling the tanks with liquids—has not yet been permitted, according to a statement from the Brandenburg Ministry of the Environment.

In addition, the company received permission to install gas cylinders for the subsequent storage of nitrogen and carbon dioxide, as well as system technology and containers for the sprinkler system. This all brings the manufacturer one step closer to starting production at Giga Berlin. Tesla's applications to install additional parts of the building's technical equipment, as well as to verify the operational reliability of other parts of the system, are still pending.

At the moment, the final environmental permit from the land of Brandenburg for the construction of the Tesla factory has not been received, so the company is building with preliminary approvals. There is now a three-week discussion of all the objections that have been filed against Giga Berlin, which will then be evaluated by the State Environmental Agency.
