For a Mobility of Tomorrow – IN

The Bavarian Minister President Dr. Markus Söder emphasizes: “Here in Ingolstadt we can see that safeguarding inlet and regulating cutting-edge record go hand-in-hand in Bavaria. The IN-Campus will renovate an aged refinery into an creation core of a vehicle attention on remediated Bavarian soil. The loyalty of AUDI AG and a city of Ingolstadt will strengthen inlet and a landscape while also formulating many new jobs. This represents a transparent joining to a Ingolstadt site. Future-oriented projects such as these are evil of Bavaria and a companies.”

The matter from Dr. Christian Lösel, a Mayor of a city of Ingolstadt, focused on a following: “IN-Campus is a button of technological change in a city: What was once a refinery is now apropos an creation campus. But we are doing some-more than only constructing new buildings here. We are formulating a jobs of a destiny here, for a technologies of a future! This model creation campus is a pointer of Audi’s inexhaustible joining to a Ingolstadt site. Today’s substructure mill is therefore an critical pitch on dual fronts: a starting shot for a IN-Campus as good as a substructure mill for a continued certain growth of Ingolstadt.”

“With a IN-Campus, we are implementing an environmentally accessible remediation plan that is but equal in Bavaria. We are totally remediating a former oil refinery site instead of regulating unbuilt areas, as was a box in a past,” says Peter Kössler, Audi Board of Management Member for Production and Logistics. “At a same time, we are formulating a future, since this is where Ingolstadt’s new suspicion factory, populated with crafty people from Audi, scientists, start-ups and partner companies, will arise. It creates me unapproachable to lay a substructure mill for this today.”

Construction work on a former refinery site in a easterly of Ingolstadt has already started—in gripping with a swell of dirt decontamination. The buildings from construction territory 1 (three construction sections are designed in total) are set to be finished in 2023. The IN-Campus does not need any underdeveloped land to be lonesome up—on a contrary, a plan will breathe new life into a infested industrial wasteland. The project house is already underneath construction. It takes a form of a vast formidable done adult of 4 buildings with 42,000 m2(452,084.2 sq ft) of bureau and seminar space. From late 2020, around 1,400 developers from Audi and partner companies will work on innovative record projects in this thought factory. While a plan residence is being constructed, extensive infrastructure work for construction territory 1 is also underway.

A vital strength of a IN-Campus is a large, continual area of 75 hectares, a likes of that can't be found anywhere else in Ingolstadt or a region. It offers an event to emanate a spacious, stretchable and appealing record park in that high tech and creativity co-exist. 60 hectares will be used as a blurb and industrial park in a future, while a remaining 15 hectares will be easy to inlet and landscape. One serve advantage is a geographical location: The site is located tighten to Audi’s categorical plant and directly on a A9 highway, that is used as a digital exam area for a growth of programmed driving. The Ingolstadt-Süd highway entrance highway will get a approach tie to a IN-Campus.

Free access, open structures and atmospheric outside comforts will be a hallmarks of a campus impression of a site. The aegis area is a immature mezzanine in a east, that creates a near-natural transition to a riverside woodland. The riverside woodland and a Danube run adjacent to a north of a site. The IN-Campus connects a civic universe with a serenity of a Danube wetlands; it creates an interface between high tech and nature. From north to south, a far-reaching parkway with inexhaustible immature areas will run opposite a site in a future. This “campus vein” is a executive component in a building concept.

In further to a plan residence and a wide-ranging infrastructure measures, additional buildings will turn off construction territory 1: a vehicle reserve core with an ultra-modern pile-up arena, an IT center, a functional building together with a glow hire and an appetite control center. The latter acts as a control core of an innovative energy-based judgment for a IN-Campus. The buildings in construction territory 1 are designed to have been finished by 2023; IN-Campus GmbH will gradually rise additional future-oriented projects on a excess of a site.

The IN-Campus is being built on a former refinery site in Ingolstadt, that was in operation for 43 years. IN-Campus GmbH acquired a infancy of a site in 2015. The required cleaning of a dirt and groundwater started in tumble 2016—carried out by a operative organisation done adult of 3 dilettante companies that uses ultra-modern methods. Most of a remediation work is set to have been finished by late 2022. Groundwater remediation is expected to continue until 2028.

This elaborate remediation plan on a IN-Campus site is one of a biggest in Germany and rare as an environmental plan in Bavaria. The remediation incorporates 4 sold methods: groundwater treatment, atmosphere sparging, honeycomb mine and downstream dirt washing.

Groundwater diagnosis involves 10 wells during a corner of a site that are versed with electric pumps to pull soiled groundwater out of a soil. A diagnosis complement removes over 99.9% of pollutants.

The air sparging method is designed to fight flighty hydrocarbons, that are components of gasoline fuels. Air is blown into a belligerent by hundreds of pipelines and picks adult dissolved pollutants in a dirt and groundwater. Just underneath a aspect of a site, a atmosphere is extracted by drainage pipes and cleaned.

The soiled dirt is excavated so that a PFC excess from firefighting foams and sum petroleum hydrocarbons—left by a fuel oil—can be eliminated. This takes place by means of an innovative and high-precision technique in that hydraulic rams expostulate steel hexagons into a earth regulating vibration. In total, they are excavating 600,000 metric tons of element from a soil, mostly involving a silt and sand standard of a site.

A soil soaking facility uses H2O to purify pollutants from a dirt grains. The H2O circulates around a diagnosis system, while another complement cleans a following empty air. More than 90% of a element delivered to a trickery is returned to a hexagonal “honeycomb” holes; a rest is likely of.

Additional statements on a IN-Campus

Peter Mosch, Chairman of a General Works Council of AUDI AG: “With a IN-Campus, Audi is investing in a destiny viability and a Ingolstadt site. The new record core will assistance to supply a employees for a vital digitalization hurdles and to guarantee jobs in a region.”

The IN-Campus stands for team-work and allows dilettante and high-tech partners to work together in one place. Everyone is pulling together here—Audi, a city of Ingolstadt and all plan partners.”

Norbert Forster, Managing Director of IN-Campus GmbH (IFG Ingolstadt): “The mutation of a IN-Campus site from what used to be industrial solitude into a high-tech area with a top-class record core is a groundbreaking prestigious plan with that an critical grant to a destiny viability of a site is being made. we am really unapproachable that IFG is holding on a executive purpose here in partnership with AUDI AG.”
