Ferris wheel, music, food, drink and e-cars: Tesla invites you to an open day at Berlin’s construction site for the factory the final approval is still missing. The festival is a matter for the boss.

Grünheide (dpa) – Thousands of visitors are expected for the open day on the construction site of the first European factory of the US electric car manufacturer Tesla. CEO Elon Musk presented himself to his fans in Grünheide today. He has agreed to come and has already landed at the capital’s airport.

At the Tesla County Fair, for example, visitors can take a tour of the construction site. A Ferris wheel can be seen on the site from afar. The police expect traffic disruptions on the motorway 09 and on the premises. The company called on guests to come by train if possible. Reserved tickets, in which there was great interest, are required to participate.

Approval is considered likely

The factory for E – Cars at the gates of Berlin has been one of the most important industrial projects in East Germany for years. Tesla hopes that the system could go into operation this year. However, the company has not yet received a final environmental permit from the state of Brandenburg. Tesla builds at your own risk via early approvals. However, approval is considered likely. Environmentalists and residents fear, among other things, that the settlement will lead to a drinking water problem and damage the water protection area in which the site is partially located.

Tesla has two exemptions for the festival from the responsible district Oder-Spree caught up: Up to 9000 instead of 5000 Visitors can participate at the same time, and Tesla can organize the major event, even though the construction site is in the drinking water protection area. The district considers the planning suitable that the Corona regulation is otherwise adhered to and also sees no danger for the protected area.
