Doha, 14/01/2015 -
Under the Patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Saoud Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Chairman of Qatar Fuel (WOQOD), a new center for vehicle inspection (FAHES) in Mesaimeer was inaugurated today, Wednesday 14 January 2015.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by WOQOD Board members, WOQOD CEO, Engineer Ibrahim Jaham Al-Kuwari, in addition to representatives from the Traffic Department, concerned public authorities and departments, WOQOD's management team and honorable guests.
On this occasion, Engineer Al-Kuwari issued the following statement: "We are pleased today to inaugurate the second center for vehicle inspection in Mesaimeer region. The center which occupies an area of 6500 square meters and has an estimated cost of 18 million Qatar Riyal, is the second among WOQOD's Smart FAHES inspection projects following the inauguration of the first center in December 2014 at Wadi Al- Banat ( North University ) . It comes as part of a series of smart inspection centers that are being currently developed by WOQOD in various regions of the State. Four new centers are currently in the design and construction phases in the regions of: Al-Wakra, al-Shamal, Al-Shihaniyyah and Al-Khour. These projects are expected to be inaugurated and operated during 2015. As part of its future strategic plan, WOQOD will also establish several new smart inspection centers in its fuel stations where there is sufficient space to establish such centers.
About the technical inspection mechanism in the new centers, Eng. Al-Kuwari added: "We are proud that these centers are a pioneering experience in the technical inspection of vehicles, as they are built according to the highest modern standards of the single window system to ensure comfort and smooth workflow.
FAHES Smart inspection centers guarantee the accuracy and centralization of the inspection data, hence minimizing the incidents of manipulating inspection data by employees or other agencies and ensuring high reliability of the electronically produced reports (paper reports were completely replaced/dismissed). Through the single window system, these centers also allow the client to pay traffic violation tickets and insurance premiums, if they desire so, with the center playing an intermediary role between the client and local insurance companies".
In the same context, WOQOD's future prospects and strategic plans include the continued development of the smart inspection systems currently implemented at the main center in the industrial zone and other branches, with the objectives of simplifying the process, minimizing the waiting time, making these systems more suitable to the modern daily lives, and making a quantum leap in the service delivery.
Finally, WOQOD is sincerely grateful to all the public and civil authorities that contributed to the completion of this project. Special thanks and gratitude is extended to His Excellency Sheikh Abdullah Ben Naser Al Thani , Prime Minister , and Minister of Interior for his unlimited support to our company. Our thanks is also extended to the Ministry of Municipalities and Urban Planning, and all other concerned authorities and stakeholders.
We would like to thank the Chairman Sheikh / Saoud Bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani and the board members for their Continuous sound guidance to accelerate the opening and operation of the technical vehicle inspection centers ( FAHES ) and several petrol stations to cover different areas in the state and to serve the citizens and the expatriates .
