Tesla Gigafactory 4 Berlin News, Disposal WWII Bombs Operation Went As Planned

Tesla Gigafactory 4 Berlin News, Disposal WWII Bombs Operation Went As Planned

World War II bombs were detonated at the site for the planned Tesla factory  in Grünheide (Oder-Spree) on Sunday. Police told media that the ammunition was defused "without any problems."

Unexploded bombs are often found in German cities and around them, as well as in other parts of Europe. For example, last week a 500 kg (1,100 pounds) bomb was found in the western city of Cologne.

According to local authorities, the ammunition found at the site of the future Tesla settlement is most likely an American air bomb. To date, according to the Brandenburg Ministry of the Interior, about 85 kg (187 pounds) of ammunition have been found in the forest area to be cleared. On January 6, ammunition recovery teams camped in the Gigafactory 4 forest in Grünheide. And now it's time to remove some WWII bombs found in the area.

Authorities approached the removal of these bombs with caution. Unauthorized personnel were banned in the area where the bombs were discovered. This part of the Gigafactory 4 forest has been fenced off from the public.

At 9:30 a.m. EST, all access roads to the site of the shell explosion were blocked and a 600-meter (0.37 mile) barrier circle was created. Police and firefighters attended the venue in order to ensure safety.

At 11:30 a.m., local time, two explosions could be heard. Thanks to the @GF4Tesla ..... # GigaBerlin, we can hear how it was.

Just a few hours later, @GF4Tesla.....#GigaBerlin, thanks to the assistance of local fire officials, was able to inspect the place where the bombs were detonated.
