The company Tesla Energy Storage, part of the Czech Tesla group, will build in the Free Zone in the city of Brăila, in the south-east of Romania, an equipment factory for energy storage, following an investment of 92 million euros.
The storage systems that will be produced by Tesla Energy Storage will also be intended for wind and solar parks.
“Investors chose to build the energy storage equipment factory in Brăila because the area has potential. We offered them tax facilities specific to the free zone regime. The strategic position near the Ring Road, the port on the Danube from where products can be sent all over the world and the openness of the local authorities contributed to the realization of this investment. In addition, Tesla has other plans, related to wind and solar parks”, said the mayor of Brăila, Marian Dragomir, on Tuesday, September 6, during a press conference where the project was announced.
Construction of the factory will begin in 2023 and the investment will create 200 jobs.
The TESLA Group was founded in the 1950s as a vertically integrated electrical equipment manufacturer. Tesla Energy Storage, the company that will carry out the investment in Brăila, is part of the Czech group TESLA, manufacturer of energy equipment (batteries for energy storage and systems for green energy projects).
Brăila is one of the most sought-after counties in our country for investors in green energy. The city of Brăila became attractive for investors also thanks to the suspension bridge over the Danube.
