In a recently published YouTube video, Tobias Lindh has shared a construction update on Tesla’s Gigafactory in Berlin, Germany.
Drone footage of the under-development facility, located in Gründheide, Germany, showcased a number of new tent structures. The tents will most likely be used to store equipment as construction progresses.
Over half way through the video, a massive maze of rebar makes an appearance. The fairly large structure will support Giga Berlin’s four-storey tall battery production facility which, once completed, could produce up to 250 GWh worth of batteries per year.
Soil preparation on the 80-hectare parcel of land Tesla cleared earlier this year as part of Giga Berlin’s latest footprint expansion also looks to be coming along nicely.
Rumors of Model Y pre-production at Gigafactory Berlin beginning in May started making the rounds back in February, and Model Y body frames were spotted on the premises in April, adding further weight to the hearsay.
However, Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently decided to give Giga Berlin another six months to become fully operational, moving the official start of production at the factory from July 1, 2021, to the “end of this year”.
