Westfalia's automated parking systems, where automation is a sustainable choice

Noise and air pollution are on the rise due to congestion. Westfalia’s automated parking systems mitigate these problems. With a Westfalia system, you no longer have to park your car yourself. Since vehicles are not turned on within an automated garage, both air and noise pollution are reduced. This alone reduces pollutant emissions compared to a conventional parking garage.

Westfalia’s automated parking systems are eco-friendly, decreasing emissions 20% to 30% compared to a conventional parking garage. These automated parking systems reduce carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and fuel use, making them sustainable, environmentally friendly parking lots. 

Make room for green space

Due to the nature of these high-density automated systems, less building space is needed to fit two to three times the number of cars. With less space needed for the garage structure itself, there is increased space for ‘green’ areas. This is especially important in densely populated urban areas to help preserve the environment.

Protect water quality

Our eco-friendly parking lots help prevent water pollution, as well. This is because they feature less surface area for oil and other automotive fluids to run off and seep into groundwater. In addition, they can be equipped with oil interceptors to collect more pollutants before they have an opportunity to soak into the ground.

Reduce energy consumption

Because only the transfer areas and walkways connecting them are open to people, these sustainable parking solutions require less lighting and ventilation overall. Our garages only require two air changes per hour. The main storage areas don’t need to be lit because only the robotic transfer vehicle enters them. This significantly reduces the amount of electricity used, making these highly sustainable parking garages.

Build more efficiently

Our sustainable parking lot designs require smaller footprints than the traditional types. That said, smaller areas need to be excavated, which, in turn, means fewer emissions from large-scale construction equipment.
