BMW AG:
Production-Oriented Power Supply for
Motorcycle Production Hall in Berlin

The requirement – area-wide power supply and high flexibility

The automobile and motorcycle manufacturer BMW has responded to the positive sales development of recent years with a modernisation offensive in the Berlin motor cycle plant. BMW has invested a total of almost 120 million EUR in the expansion and modernisation of the Spandau Factory, particularly in a 16,000 sq m extension for the motorcycle assembly with a new state-of-the-art paint shop and extension of the engine production for motorcycles.

The first motorcycle to be produced in the new production building rolled off the assembly line in autumn 2002.

In addition to the increase in capacity, increased flexibility in motorcycle production was a prime objective. In future it should be possible to respond faster to customer requirements and to developments in the market.

For this reason, the power supply of the two-floor production hall has also been implemented with increased flexibility so that a reliable area-wide power supply can be ensured and adapted easily to any production changes at any time.
