Al Bandar Al Raha Beach features an unique residential development that focus on enhanced quality of living environment and added value to the property. Carbon emissions was dramatically reduced by the replacement of fossil fuel driven RCV’s (Refuse Collection Vehicles) with STREAM Automated Waste Collection Systems (AWCS), which allowed a fully sealed underground vacuum pipe network to ensure that no waste or odour entered the surrounding areas. The removal of waste became a STREAM-lined and efficient process that saved energy, protected the environment, and improved air and ground quality immensely. The operation of the system is built on a 24/7 reliability. The system is fully computerised and automated, with any issues arised that may caused the system malfunctioning is indicated at the control centre by alarm signals. The frequency of the emptying cycles can be easily changed inline with localised circumstances and additional discharging may be programmed for particular areas with higher waste output.
