The reindustrialisation of Nissan Barcelona is now a reality

Today an agreement was signed for the transfer of land, which will be a large asset center for the industry that will produce 100,000 electric vehicles by 2025. There are 650 former Nissans to invest.

Almost three years after Nissan announced that it would close its factories in Barcelona, ​​and almost a year and a half after it made the effective closure, this Monday the process of reindustrialization of the land it occupied culminated. The last necessary step will be the signing of the contract for the lease of these lands, which have been donated to the real estate and logistics giant Goodman in the project, which counts as a major asset of the industry, the center of electromobility formed by the companies QTev and BTech. , which are relatively empty and collect electricity.

The last act of Maroto?

The event is expected by the Minister of Industry, Reyes Maroto, in which the last major act is the head of the bookstores before turning to the war José Luis López Almeida for the mayor of Madrid in the final elections of May. . The trial of the matter by the Consorcio de la Zona Franca de Barcelona (CZFB), the owner of the land has already been completed at the end of February, but the formal signing between CZFB and Goodman, on the one hand, and between Nissan and the electromobility center on the other

In this way, considering 500,000 square meters, the ‘hub’ will use about 300,000, while Goodman will directly exploit about 100,000. Another 38,000 square meters will be occupied by the Nissan technical center, the only facility that will survive the old structure of the Japanese manufacturer; and the remaining 68,000, the Silence electric vehicle factory (scooters and small two-seater cars), which began operating last July and occupies 61,078 square meters.

DCL developer to relocate

At this point, the main objective is the job of the former Nissan employees who are still unemployed and who will fail to receive benefits at the end of this year. Of the 2,525 workers that the builder had in Barcelona, ​​counting 287 in the technical center, 1,100 agreed to early retirement and a little less than the 1,400 expected relocation, although another 60 found other exits and another 60 were hired by Silence.

Meanwhile, the center has promised to make 600 contracts this 2023, so that it remains to find an exit for another 650 workers. Thus, formulas such as the distribution of work through voluntary part-time contracts or services such as cleaning, which are previously withdrawn, can be considered by these workers in the first stage.

Under plans announced last year, QTev and BTech plan to build 100,000 vehicles by 2025 and have a workforce of 1,000 by then. This project was one of 10 that benefited from the support of the first Perth VEC call, with public support of 65.23 million dollars.
