Tesla Giga Berlin has received another preliminary approval to test the functionality of the factory's systems, including exhaust water and air purification systems. This approval indicates that the factory may soon be ready ready for full commissioning.
On June 1, Tesla received another preliminary approval from the State Environmental Agency. It includes authorization to test the functionality of the systems in the Paint Shop, Casting, and Body in White, according to a statement from the Brandenburg Ministry of the Environment. In addition, the installation of wastewater treatment tanks has been agreed upon.
Permitted functional tests include treatment and pressure testing of system technology, signal testing, filling systems, and functional testing of machines, apparatus, containers, and burners. According to the ministry, this is not a trial operation, since any car parts produced during the tests are not samples for possible future use, and in fact, are unusable.
This permission to test the operational reliability of systems is provided for by the Federal Emission Control Act. Accordingly, only small amounts of water pollutants and accident-related substances are used in functional tests. Emission control requirements include the requirement to optimize the efficiency of exhaust air treatment systems as part of testing.
