Sustainability Efforts Continue at Qatar Foundation as First Trams Arrive in Doha

Sustainability Efforts Continue at Qatar Foundation as First Trams Arrive in Doha :Qatar Foundation (QF) has placed sustainability at the top of its agenda, and, with the first batch of trams for its ground-breaking QF Tram System officially arriving in Doha recently, it is now one step closer to transforming its flagship development, Education City, into an environmentally-friendly ‘smart-city’.

“We have firmly placed sustainable development at the top of our agenda,” said Engineer Saad Al Muhannadi, President of Qatar Foundation.

“QF’s dedication to sustainability is at the core of many our activities, and the tram system is just one example. We believe that the planning, design, and construction of green infrastructure is integral to the continued growth of our nation, and our efforts are reflected in a wider, national program that is designed to preserve and protect the environment.”

“We are delighted that the first shipment of trams has arrived. We are now one step closer to the QF Tram System launching in Qatar. And with the trams having the potential to be one of the most energy-efficient forms of public transport, the ground-breaking system will fulfill our ultimate goal of transforming Education City into a ‘smart-city’, and becoming a benchmark for green development.”

Siemens, the German-based company tasked with the project, is set to provide a total of 19 trams. With a capacity of 234 passengers per tram, including 60 seated, the system is set to transport an average of approximately 3,000 people in each direction every hour, with 17 trains operating, some at four-minute intervals during peak times.

Additionally, QF is set to open a comprehensive visitor’s center, which will serve as a hub dedicated to the introduction of the brand-new QF Tram System to the public. The center will feature a full-scale model of one of the trams, as well as information about the planned network.
