Construction kicks off for Gigafactory 4

Large  Small Date:2020-02-17  From:ICC

The construction preparations for the planned European Gigafactory of Tesla in Brandenburg have begun. The clearing of a 91 hectare pine forest began on Thursday evening. Brandenburg’s Minister of Economics Jörg Steinbach announced the launch via Twitter.

“It’s starting. Construction preparations have begun. A historical photo from a few minutes ago”, the SPD politician twittered early Thursday evening, along with a photo showing heavy equipment in the pine forest. The current clearing start is necessary to ensure Tesla’s ambitious schedule. As is well known, the Californians want to start production in Grünheide as early as summer 2021.

Tesla has now started the clearing work at his own risk. Although the State Office for the Environment has granted permission for early clearing and has also approved preparatory construction measures for the electric car manufacturer (such as the construction of construction roads), final approval is still pending. In practice, this means that Tesla is allowed to start, but must reckon with a shutdown of activities if the worst comes to the worst.

As reported yesterday, the Americans have in the meantime announced an environmental protection package as compensation and in response to demands by conservationists. Tesla wants to replace the trees cut down and reforest three times as many trees elsewhere. The company has also announced plans to hang up nesting boxes, relocate forest ant colonies and reptiles and install protective fences, among other things. The question of water supply has also been clarified – at least in the first stage of expansion.
