Unitronics automated car park for 1,400 vehicles to be built in Calgary, Canada, for a premier hotel chain. Unitronics Systems Inc., a subsidiary of Israel-based Unitronics (1989) (RG) Ltd (EuroNM: UNITB; TASE: UNIT), announced that it has entered into a binding letter of intent with Prestige Properties Corp for the design, supply and installation of an Automated Vehicle Storage and Retrieval System (“AVSRS”) in Calgary, Canada, for $24 million. Under the terms of the deal, Unitronics is expected to provide approximately 1,400 parking spaces for a premier hotel chain. A formal contract is expected to be signed between the parties once Prestige receives a development permit from the relevant authorities, and proceeds with the project later this year. “We are delighted to have been chosen to build the largest automated car park in North America, which is a tremendous achievement and further affirmation of our proprietary design and advanced robotics technology,” said Haim Shani, CEO of Unitronics. “Having previously built one of the world’s largest, automated smart warehouses for the pharmaceutical industry, this new project validates the strength of our offer for automated solutions. We look forward to delivering this project and achieving another milestone for our business.” Unitronics, a leading global provider of industrial automation products, smart warehouses and automated parking solutions, has developed an advanced proprietary AVSRS comprising an array of automated robots, elevators and command-and-control software designed to enable the automated, fast and efficient storage and retrieval of cars, on average, within approximately two minutes (to store or retrieve a car). Overall, Unitronics’ system is designed to enable up to three-times more cars to be parked than a regular parking garage in the same space. Additionally, Unitronics reportedly offers the only AVSRS solution in the world that is more cost effective than conventional parking for such projects. Unitronics parking solutions provide benefits such as, savings in valuable real estate; environmentally friendly, low electricity consumption, reduced fuel emissions, and reduced noise and risk of groundwater contamination; reduced maintenance costs; and improved accessibility for people with disabilities. In addition, the company’s automated car park is designed to offer high personal and asset security. unitronics_HQ Unitronics 1989 (R.G.)
