The ‘Service Station of the Future’ by Enoc Group is now open to the public at Expo City Dubai as part of the Expo’s lasting sustainable legacy.

According to Khaleej Times, Expo City Dubai is now ready to host 145,000 residents and workers.

The UAE’s first 15-minute city with amenities is in close proximity to the 85 start-ups and small businesses that will occupy the commercial space later this year.

Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, Enoc, said: “Since it was unveiled, the ‘Service Station of the Future’ has supported the logistical needs of the entire Expo 2020 Dubai’s fleet ahead of and throughout the event.

Inspired by the UAE’s rich heritage in the form of its national tree, the Ghaf, more than 43,000 sqm of carbon-fibre has been used to construct the canopy in addition to 37 tonnes of carbon-fibre which was used to build the 133 multi-layer canopy frames that house clear, innovative leaf shaped Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) cushion canopies and are powered with more than 3,800 LED light modules.

The 5,841.87-sqm station harnesses renewable energy through 283 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels installed to generate 143MWh of solar power, in addition to a 25m wind turbine, which will generate 12.7MWh of wind energy annually, within the 4.38km2 World Expo site. (NewsWire)
