BMW Santa Caterina Plant
Araquari, Santa Caterina, Brazil
With a production capacity of over 30,000 vehicles annually, this BMW production site also features a body shop, a paint shop, administrative and auxiliary infrastructure, and logistic activities. The facility covers an area of 1.5 million m2 (16.1 million square feet). The plant produces the Mini Countryman, the BMW 1 Series and 3 Series sedans, and the X1 and X3 SUV models.
The production site maintains an on-site water and sewage treatment plant to meet local environmental regulations. The project contractor specified PENETRON ADMIX to ensure durable structures for the large storage tanks. This treatment protects the concrete tank structures against any moisture ingress, including the chemicals found in the plant’s wastewater.
