Elon Musk confirmed that Tesla is now using some prefabricated construction methods to speed up the construction of its new factory.
When Tesla focused on the goal of accelerating the production of electric vehicles, it found that it needed to study “machines that make machines,” or factories.
In order to increase the output of new cars, the automaker has been focusing on manufacturing.
One way to do this is to quickly build new production facilities.
Tesla has grown from a factory in California to now operates 3 major factories around the world, and is currently building two other large factories.
In less than a year, Shanghai Gigafactory has changed from a piece of land to a factory producing cars, which left a deep impression on people.
Tesla is currently expanding its factory to prepare to start producing Model Y.
The automaker is also currently building Gigafactory Berlin from the ground up. The new plant will use all the greatest manufacturing technologies that Tesla has developed over the past few years.
However, the expansion of the new factory itself is also very interesting.
After some regulatory issues and the COVID-1
A new drone video shows that Tesla has erected a wall at the site:
CEO Elon Musk commented on the rapid development of the site last night and said that Tesla is using “prefabricated construction methods”:
“Giga Berlin will come together at a speed that seems unachievable. German prefabricated construction methods are impressive.”
In the past few decades, prefab construction has gained great momentum for development.
It is mainly known for its use in the residential construction industry, but it is now becoming more and more common in commercial and even industrial construction projects.
It includes the use of manufacturing methods in factories instead of construction processes to manufacture parts for new buildings offsite to produce easy-to-assemble profiles, thereby reducing construction time and labor.
So you can say that they are building a new factory, and the factory itself is (at least partly) established in the factory.
