The Safa 28 residential project is located at Al Nada and Al Qairwan areas in Riyadh and is owned by the Safa Investment Company. It plans to establish 140 housing units within 10 buildings and then further expand to develop 921 buildings.
ABB is providing two kinds of chargers for this project, which are going to be installed within 12 weeks, 13 ‘AC Terra Single Phase 7.4kW’ which will be installed in the basement of the buildings for the apartments and 4 ‘AC Terra Three Phases 22kW’ with Metering function’ and radio frequency identification (RFID) cards, which will be installed for the villas.
