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. As a pilot system used for the first time in a Mercedes-Benz plant, an innovative direct current network is installed in Factory 56 which feeds the power directly into the plant's DC network without power inverters or losses. A stationary energy bank based on vehicle batteries is connected to the DC network and has a capacity of 1400 kWh. This is also able to store solar power and deliver it on days with little sunshine. In addition the shop is supplied with external power from renewable energy sources.
