Amana announces completion of solar PV powered Al Futtaim Auto Park

Works have been completed on the 14,000sqm Al Futtaim Auto Park in Al Ain, according to design-build specialist Amana. The Auto Park is said to feature a complete showroom and workshop facility for servicing motor vehicles. It also boasts a solar photovoltaic (PV) system that can generate 800MWh.

The project is the first automotive facility to operate all brands under one roof, as well as being the only multistory automotive facility in Al Ain, which can hold almost 70 new and used cars on both floors. Its end-to-end offering includes commercial vehicles, in addition to passenger cars, new and used, for sale, leasing, and renting, a statement from Amana noted.

Its 487.9kWp solar PV plan is expected to generate 800MWh of energy, whilst offsetting 334 metric tons of carbon dioxide during its first year of operation.

“The Al Futtaim Auto Park in Al Ain has become a signifier of a greener, smarter future for the nation. Building it with a solar PV system, we combined significant energy production with seamless architectural integration. Thus the project opens up new prospects for the deployment of renewable energy. Solar photovoltaic systems are a critical solution to help decarbonise the construction sector, responsible for more than one third of global annual greenhouse gas emissions,” said Amana CEO Jihad Bsaibes.

Its strong and diversified portfolio of capabilities, beyond standard industrial contracting, enabled a seamless and successful installation, even as construction of the building was ongoing, explained Bsaibes.
