The Berlin-Brandenburg authorities grant two more preliminary permits to the Tesla Gigafactory Berlin to start production before this year ends. The approval of these new permits was required by the local government because Tesla had made some changes to the original plans.

According to the local observer and Tesla Giga Berlin YouTuber Tobias Lindh, these permits include rain & firewater basins and all the planned buildings and road networks of this massive electric vehicle manufacturing plant.

Tesla’s modified plans include the construction of intermediate floors in multiple buildings. Also including several infiltrations and sedimentation basins, the rainwater retention basin, the extinguishing water retention basin as well as the intake structure and pipe shaft pumping station.

Tesla had applied for these approvals back in May 2021, due to the beureaucratic structure and public participation in the approval process in Germany, it took 4-5 months for the whole procedure.

The Brandenburg Ministry of Agriculture, Environment and Climate Protection (MLUK) published the following press release to announce the new approvals (Auto-translated by Google):

Tesla had submitted the application for approval of the early start for the construction of several infiltration and sedimentation basins, the rainwater retention basin, the extinguishing water retention basin as well as the intake structure and pipe shaft pumping station in May 2021. A decision on the application could only now be made because a change in the project in the ongoing approval process required renewed public participation. After all authorities involved, including the new objections presented, once again confirmed the positive approval prognosis for the project in accordance with Section 8a of the Federal Immission Control Act, this decision had to be made now.

This also applies to a further approval of the early start, with which the modified construction of buildings is permitted. Because the changes to the project as a result of the application of June 3, 2021 also resulted in changes to the building envelope, the Tesla company applied again for the already approved construction of buildings in an adapted form. With the current approval, the construction of the completely modified building envelope including the changes to the warehouse now intended for battery cell production is permitted. The planned pile foundations are not part of the approvals.

Furthermore, Tesla builds at its own risk and had to undertake to dismantle the plant if the final approval is not granted. In the approval process, the online consultation is expected to start next week to discuss the objections raised in all three objection periods.

Giga Berlin is expected to start limited production of the European Tesla Model Y before the end of this year. Production will gradually scale in the next year. Currently, Tesla is delivering China-made Tesla Model Ys in Europe.

In anticipation of production start, Tesla allowed local media to record the inside footage of Gigafactory Berlin last month. These developments indicate that the factory is not far behind on the production start schedule this year.
