BMW’s largest and most environmentally friendly facility.
China: April 2013
Abacus has completed the installation of columns and masts for the new $1.8 billion BMW Brilliance Automotive plant in the Tiexi district of Shenyang, China. The new BMW plant will produce the BMW X1 and BMW 3 Series for the local Chinese market and covers more than 2 million square metres.
Abacus have supplied over 330 columns and masts ranging from 19 metres to 35 metres in height. The exacting BMW requirements led to numerous design changes to ensure that the lighting infrastructure was future proof enabling the development plans and expansions to be accommodated without any changes.
This new plant is BMW’s largest and most environmentally friendly production facility in the world, employing over 3,000 people. The plant utilises the latest technology to maximise solar and wind power, reducing energy requirements and overall CO2 emissions.
