Tesla Giga Berlin Update: General Assembly Building Construction & More

Tesla Giga Berlin Update: General Assembly Building Construction & More

Featured image: @RalfThomas/Twitter

The popularity of Model Y continues to grow and Europeans are looking forward to ordering their own. This will be possible when the construction of Phase 1 of Giga Berlin is complete. Assessing the progress that the team has made in Grünheide, it can be assumed that the first Model Y made in Germany will roll off the assembly line ahead of schedule.

Previously, the construction of General Assembly proceeded at a relatively slow pace. In August and early September, the installation of pillars continued there, around which, eventually, the shell of the building will be assembled. However, after all the major Phase 1 buildings have made soldi progress and have taken shape, we will likely then see the focus of work shift to General Assembly.

@Gf4Tesla/Twitter reports that the installation of roof structures on General Assembly has begun, marking another milestone in the building's construction. It was observed that, after the start of the installation of the roof structures, construction of all buildings on the site moved quickly thereafter.

The Tesla equipment will be supplied by SCHOLPP, a subsidiary just a few miles from Giga Berlin. SCHOLPP is available as an industrial transport and assembly service provider for all OEMs and industrial suppliers supplying machines and systems for Tesla's new factory in Germany. At SCHOLPP in Berlin there is a team of almost 80 project managers, project engineers, assembly managers, and specialist fitters who have significant experience in the automotive industry.
