Flexible, digital, efficient and sustainable: Factory 56 at the Sindelfingen plant embodies the future of production at Mercedes-Benz and sets new standards for the automotive industry. Factory 56 is producing on a CO2-neutral basis from the start and thus becomes the Zero Carbon Factory. All in all, the energy requirement of Factory 56 is 25 percent lower than that of other assembly shops. On the roof of Factory 56 is a photovoltaic system which supplies the shop with self-generated, green electric power. This is able to cover around 30 percent of the annual power requirement of Factory 56. Some of this power flows to an innovative direct current network which will improve the energy efficiency of the assembly shop during operation in future. This powers infrastructural systems such as ventilation units for example.
