Qatar’s first multi-level automated car parking was formally commissioned at the Mowasalat compound in Abu Hamour yesterday. The parking facility, consisting of five levels and capable of accommodating 50 cars on different levels simultaneously, was described by the transport company officials as of “unmatchable standards, and unprecedented” in the region. They said the facility had been established at a time when Doha was facing acute parking space shortage. Speaking to journalists, executive director of the Mowasalat Ahmed Busherbak al-Mansouri said the new facility was equipped with a power generator and had the first rotating car park of its kind in the GCC states. The new facility was set up in association with local Venture Gulf Group, which is the distributor of the equipment in the country. Korea’s Dong Yang installed the facility in about three months. US firm Parkmatic, which specialises in the manufacturing of parking facility machines, supplied the equipment. It is understood that each parking lot inside the facility cost about $15,000 for manufacturing. Mowasalat Deputy Executive director Waleed Raslan al-Abdulla, director of business development Ahmed al-Ansari, administration manager Ali Abdulla Behzad, vice-president of Venture Gulf Abdulla bin Abdul Aziz al-Nasser, Parkmatic marketing director (Mena region) Rodney Skeet and Dong Yang business manager Choi Yun Ho were present at the ceremony. http://gulf-times.com/site/topics/article.asp?cu_no=2&item_no=341014&version=1&template_id=36&parent_id=16
