SCP Foundation Facility Dossier


Official Designation: Special Production Site-DE15

Site Identification Code: AUN-DE15

General Information


Usage: Site-DE15 is the southern logistics and production center of the German-speaking Foundation. In this location, Foundation-owned technologies and products as well as goods that are not readily available on the open market are manufactured and shipped to the other Foundation sites. In emergency situations, Site-DE15 is authorized to also use the production capacities of the immediately adjacent Audi factory. Due to the sensitive nature of this site and its proximity to a major population center, no anomalies are regularly contained here in the longer term, with the exception of Safe and Thaumiel anomalies that support Site-DE15's production capabilities.

Founded: 3. July 1948

Location: Ingolstadt, Bavaria

Cover: Part of the Audi production facilities

Function: Production, Trial production and storage of goods for the Foundation

Size: 1.700.000 m2, not counting above ground Audi production facilities (2.737.500 m2)

Main access: Site-DE15 can be entered via a separate building on the grounds of the Aud factory. This building is specially secured against intrusion from the outside and is designated for Audi employees as a research building for top-secret projects. Inside the building are some administrative offices and a truck access to the actual site, normally locked by steel bulkhead.

  • Staff Guard Post: In addition to the Audi plant security guards on the factory grounds, there is a guard room underground at the entrance to Site-DE15 that is manned by at least five guards at all times. They are all equipped with one HK SFP9, pepper spray, taser pistols and telescopic baton each, and have access to three HK MP5N submachine guns in case of emergency. The driveway is also equipped with spikes that extend from the ground to disable the tires of intruding vehicles. In extreme cases, armored barriers can also be deployed. As a last resort, the access way can be buried with a controlled explosion.
  • Side access points: Normally inaccessible and camouflaged emergency exits are located on the Audi factory perimeters, normally sealed by multiple lifting bulkheads that are unsealed only in the event of a catastrophic emergency. Additionally, buryable employee access points are located in several locations throughout Ingolstadt, all of which are sensor and video monitored and lead to the main entrance guardroom.

Main Building: The above-ground portion of the site houses the administration and parts of logistics management, but not site management. The building itself is clad in metal from the outside, with walls of 50-cm-thick reinforced concrete behind it. All windows are made of two-centimeter-thick bulletproof glass, and doors inside the building are made of two-centimeter-thick armored steel. In the event of an enemy takeover, the building's archives can be set on fire and all data will be retrieved by the security AI KIRA and sent to Site-DE2 for storage.

Subteranean Structure

Site-DE15 has several extensive basement levels divided into factory floors. Several freight elevators, which can be buried in case of emergency, connect all levels except basement Floor 8. Floor 9 can be reached by a separate elevator, which was built to be especially robust to withstand aggressive anomalies.

  • Basement Floor 1: This floor houses the staff quarters, site administration, the infirmary wing, and the barracks of the site's own RTF DE15-𝔐 (15-Manfred "Die Mechaniker" (i.e. The Mechanics). Due to the close proximity to Ingolstadt, recreational facilities are not provided to personnel at this site, however, Site DE15 does distribute discount vouchers to all of its employees for shopping and recreational activities within the city.

Production line for Class A Amnestics.

  • Basement Floor 2-4: The floors are each separated by five meters of concrete and contain extensive production facilities for the mass production of goods for Foundation use, including weapons, munitions, Scranton reality anchors, amnestics, and construction parts for containment cells. These production facilities are largely supplied with robotic arms and assembly lines. Because of the irreplaceable value of these facilities, contingency measures consist of flooding the facilities with poison gas to make them inaccessible to possible adversaries.

  • Basement Floor 5-6: These floors are divided into smaller halls where one-off production is carried out, such as special containment equipment, instances of SCP-150-DE, parts for other production facilities on the upper floors, or components for the Foundation AIs KIRA and KAI. Even though there is a high degree of mechanization here, most of the work steps are basically manufactory work.

  • Basement Floor 7: Floor 7 houses the research of Site-DE15. It is here where new manufacturing processes for Site-DE10's designs are developed, with close collaboration with Standort-DE12. Quality control is also housed here, as all Site-DE15 products must meet strict standards. The quality inspectors are not on Site-DE15's payroll, but on Site-DE1's to avoid influence from the administration.
  • Basement Floor 8: On Basement Floor 8 are the warehouses for raw materials and finished products. The railroad station of the underground maglev and its maintenance facilities are also located here. Site-DE15 is connected by rail to the sites -DE10, -DE17, -DE18 and -DE21. Since most of Site-DE15's goods are shipped by maglev and raw materials are received in the same manner, this rail station is the most developed of all the Germanophone Foundation sites and has numerous hoisting cranes to load and unload the train quickly. In addition, the reserve train of the underground magnetic train system is stored here. Because this location is a weak point in Site-DE15's defenses, special security precautions are in place here, implemented by round-the-clock security personnel and automatic KBA machine guns that extend from the walls.
  • Basement Floor 9: Containment cells are located on this level for temporary containment of the most common anomalies picked up in Site DE15's area of responsibility. In addition, a separate wing house the anomalies from which Site-DE15 derives its benefit. Since this wing is particularly secure, it also houses the nuclear reactor that supplies the facility with electricity. It is currently deactivated, however, as the sand site currently draws its power from SCP-183-DE-1.

Additional Information

Site DE15 was established by the parent Foundation in 1948 and at that time still bore the name "Provisional Production Site-41". The north of Ingolstadt had been chosen as the site because here hidden infrastructure of the SKP could continue to be used. Sondereinrichtung-5, as it was called during World War II, had specialized in the production of war-essential goods using anomalous means, but the successes were not outstanding enough to impress the regime leadership due to the lack of financial resources from 1944 onward. After the capture of Ingolstadt by American troops in April 27, 1945, the Foundation claimed the SKP premises for itself, removed the anomalous components, and continued to use the remainder for the production of its own goods to better contain anomalies of the SKP and other groups on the ground. This practice continued after World War II and the site was renamed Site-DE15 in 1962.

Due to an error in clarifying ownership, the responsible authorities failed to formally assign the area of Provisional Production Site-41 to the Foundation, leading the Ingolstadt administration to believe that the land still belonged to the city. However, this oversight was recognized too late, not until 1958, after Auto Union GmbH, formerly located in Chemnitz, had purchased the property and published plans according to which a new automobile plant was to be built there. This created a dilemma for the Foundation, because on the one hand, doctrine forbade it to interfere in state and economic affairs as long as there were no anomalies involved; on the other hand, it was important to preserve an established site. The site director at the time, Dr. Huggins, proposed a middle ground to the O5 Council, which was granted. Dr. Huggins' proposal had been to discreetly notify Auto Union management of the existence and operation of existing infrastructure on the acquired property and to properly compensate the group. However, this plan failed due to the resistance of the works council under Fritz Böhm, which, however, had also not been informed of the special circumstances. Since Auto Union GmbH was thus unable, for a number of reasons, to give up the site without suffering considerable damage, it was negotiated by Dr. Huggins that the Foundation, using numerous cover identities, would buy up a large part of Auto Union's shares and financially support the construction of the plant. In return, Auto Union GmbH agreed to make parts of its production capacity temporarily available to the Foundation upon request. The Foundation continues to make regular use of this right to this day, but takes care to only provide Auto Union GmbH and its current legal successor, Audi AG, with parts that can reasonably be declared as vehicle components. These include numerous Scranton reality anchor components, machine parts for containment efforts, and spare parts for the Foundation's fleet of submarines and ships.

When Volkswagen AG bought out Auto Union GmbH in the mid-1960s, the Foundation had to repeatedly engage in cover-ups, as the proup regularly made internal inquiries about the Ingolstadt factory's underutilized capacities. At this time, measures were taken to have leverage against Volkswagen AG if necessary, should a cover-up occur.

After the merger of Auto Union GmbH with Neckarsulmer Motorenwerke AG in 1969, a survey of employee data at the parent company revealed that Dr. Huggins, who had returned to America at that time, had made considerable profit from the group's shares. He denied any influence of financial gain on his decisions, went unpunished for lack of evidence, and retired with full honors in Ireland in 19782.

Toward the end of 2014, the Foundation was exposed by Volkswagen AG with the help of a defector. Even though knowledge of the organization was limited to management, billions in retroactive compensation was sought for using Volkswagen resources without the group's knowledge. The AG threatened to disclose the Foundation, which it countered without warning in 2015 by tipping off U.S. authorities, resulting in the VW emissions scandal. Representatives of the Foundation noted at another meeting with VW representatives that it would take further such steps if the proup continued to obstruct the organization in its work, whereupon Volkswagen AG ceased all activities against the Foundation and has not bothered Site-DE15 with inquiries since then.
