Al Jahra Court, Kuwait
For the second time, a Robotic Parking System automatic garage earned the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Automated Parking Facility” in the world. The record was officially awarded to the company in February 2018.
Robotic Parking Systems was contracted for the design, manufacture of the machinery and automation, installation, start-up of operations and maintenance for a 2,314 space automated parking facility for the Al Jahra Court Complex in Kuwait. M A Kharafi was the general contractor on the project for Amiri Diwan of Kuwait – the office of the Amir of Kuwait. This facility was designed as a combination of 684 concrete ramp parking spaces with 2314 automated spaces on top. The Robotic Parking System provides almost 3.5 times the number of parking spaces in approximately the same volume.
Peak traffic throughput for this Robotic Parking System is 425 cars per hour delivered through the 12 grade level entry / exit bays that service the garage. That’s a capacity to deliver almost 7 cars each and every minute! The performance of the facility exceeded the contract requirements of 400 cars per hour throughput and an average of 220 seconds single retrieval time.
