Reon and Redco International Qatar partnered to build the first solar bus charging depot in Al Lusail for the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Bus Charging Depot has been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the largest bus charging station in the world.
The project aims to support transportation operations during FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and beyond. Roughly 23,700 fans will be facilitated daily through the operation of 241 buses during the matches. The main goal of the project is to increase public transit ridership and to switch to clean energy in transportation to improve overall air and climate quality in Qatar.
The project will achieve an annual energy generation of 7,843 MWH and achieve carbon savings of 4,823.98 tonnes.
