Qatar's public parks are set to receive additional mobile phone solar charging stations.

Ras Laffan Industrial City’s Community Outreach Programme (RLIC-COP) has offered support to Al Shamal Municipality to install solar-powered charging stations for mobile phones in three public parks of Al Shamal Area.

The additonal 10 solar-powered charging stations will soon be set up in Al Ruwais, Ain Sinan and Abu Dhalouf.

The solar-powered mobile charging station is called the 'Solar Multi-Function Charging Tree' with each having two light poles which can provide eight hours of continuous lighting.

Nearby beaches in Abu Dhalouf and Al Ruwais, will also offer 34 shaded areas with solar lights.

The project is part of Al Shamal Municipality’s environment preservation efforts and sustainability development initiatives.

RLIC-COP offers support enterprises that benefit the local community in Al Khor and Northern Areas of Qatar.

The initiative was established by the seven leading energy companies operating in Ras Laffan Industrial City: Qatar Petroleum, Qatargas, RasGas, Al Khaleej Gas, Dolphin Energy, Pearl GTL and Oryx GTL.

Qatargas is managing the project on behalf of the RLIC-COP and Qatargas public relations manager Azzam Abdul Aziz al-Mannai described the initiative as a commendable step in line with the objectives of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
