The inauguration of Ferrari's factory of tomorrow: Here's what you need to know

Ferrari's innovative and eco-friendly electronic building will also produce the brand's electric models in the future

Ferrari's road ahead includes gasoline engines, hybrids, and indeed, electric motors, as "each engine can assure the quintessential driving sensations typical of a Ferrari," emphasizes the team behind the "Prancing Horse." And the Ferraris that will be part of this new era will take their first breath in the newly constructed e-Building in Maranello.

A fresh facility designed for an innovative method of production has just been inaugurated in the presence of Sergio Mattarella, the President of Italy, and is set to gradually commence operations by the end of 2024.

Factory 4.0 + 1

A 25-meter-tall cube-shaped structure spans 42,000 square meters and had approximately 200 million euros funneled into its construction. Beyond the figures, this new facility falls into the category of a Factory 4.0 – it's automated, digitized, and optimized for efficiency.

In the automotive sector, there's a surge in the construction of new factories that fit this profile, yet the Ferrari e-Building project stands out as it offers a facility where every model from its lineup can be assembled. This is no minor detail, considering these are specialty vehicles produced in limited quantities, with a significant level of customization for buyers.

Ferrari stands to gain from a complete digital overhaul of its processes, potentially streamlining production. This could lead to enhancements in quality, adaptability, and accelerate the creation of new models, depending on customer demand and the pace of technological advancement.

From this perspective, one of the most cutting-edge features is the capability within the E-casing to manufacture any model from Ferrari's range, from the 296 to the 12Cilindri, including the Purosangue and the Roma. Plus, in time, it will also accommodate the upcoming electric Ferrari.

Concentrating on the Workforce

There's also the element of human resources which starts with the quality of the work setting concerning acoustic comfort, temperature, green spaces, and visual comfort that comes with the correct balance of natural and artificial lighting.

And of course, the workplace ergonomics, which are enhanced by "collaborative" robots that assist employees by adjusting their actions to meet their physical and operational needs.

The E-structure additionally includes a facility dedicated to training staff on the brand's electrification, focusing on electric motors, battery chemistry, and assembly processes: a workforce retraining initiative that commenced two years ago.

The birthplace of the inaugural electric Ferrari

As previously indicated, the production of the initial electric model is slated to commence in the E-building from the year 2025. Official details regarding the technical specifications remain under wraps. However, a notable detail concerning the production approach has been revealed early on: the essential parts such as the engine (comprising the rotor and stator), the high-voltage batteries, and the axle will be assembled on-site.

The body of a Ferrari during manufacturing

The entire facility aims to operate without emitting any pollutants by achieving total self-sufficiency in energy, which is expected next year through the setup of 3,000 solar panels capable of generating a combined power of 1.3 megawatts. This aligns with the goal of utilizing 100% self-generated and renewable energy sources.

Ferrari explains that various cutting-edge methods have been implemented to recycle energy and rainwater during the manufacturing cycle. For instance, over 60 percent of the energy consumed for testing batteries and engines is recovered through storage systems and redeployed for subsequent processes.

The same area where the campus is situated was redeveloped without using additional land, replacing old, outdated, and highly energy-consuming industrial structures, impacting approximately 100,000 square meters.

What's the route to get there? You can take a service road or a cycling path that stretches for 1.5 kilometers.
