Nørre Allé

Copenhagen's smallest automated parking facility next to beautiful St. Johannes Church

The City of Copenhagen is a pioneer in making its city greener by creating additional outdoor leisure space and an environment with less cars on the city´s streets. With these in mind the City of Copenhagen chose to implement three automated parking systems within a year after a robust public tender process.

Westfalia's Solution:
The Nørre Allé parking garage is located in the immediate vicinity of the beautiful St. John's Church from 1861. Once having parked the vehicle in one of the two transfer cabins and having answered the questions on the display system, the vehicle is moved on a lift to be handed over to a transfer car delivering the vehicle to its allocated storage position. Upon request the transfer car retrieves the vehicle and delivers it to the lift that transports the vehicle back to the transfer cabin. To make the system even faster, it is equipped with 4 horizontal transfer cars. The system is operated by Westfalia´s Savanna.NET® software. The Nørre Allé parking garage is equipped with an algorithm counter which documents the frequency of vehicle use. Based on this evaluation, the most used vehicles are placed near the elevators to reduce waiting times for the user to a minimum.
