At its Berlin plant, Tesla intends to increase production capacity annually

Tesla has applied to the German state of Brandenburg for permission to modify and expand the current plant site as part of the Giga Berlin project. The Berlin Gigafactory will be able to create cars at a rate that is twice as high as it can now, according to the plan.

A Tesla spokeswoman stated that Tesla has applied to increase its production capacity from the existing 500,000 vehicles per year to 1 million vehicles per year. This information was provided by a representative of the Brandenburg State Environment Agency (LfU). It is important to remember that the Berlin Gigafactory has not yet surpassed a production pace of 500,000 automobiles annually.

An interesting statement made by Tesla in the application was that “By completely treating and recycling the wastewater generated during the production process, the planning and production process has been optimized so that the water consumption previously used as the basis and already contracted is sufficient to meet this expansion. In other words, Tesla implied that it could build 500,000 cars with the same amount of water as it could build 1 million.

Since the factory’s construction, the corporation has struggled with the Berlin Gigafactory’s water consumption issue. Opponents claim that the area lacks water and that the Gigafactory Berlin endangers the water supply of the locals.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, stated during an early visit to the Berlin Gigafactory location that the project will make every effort to minimize and optimize its water consumption. Tesla will recycle as much water as feasible, according to Musk as well.
