Early November and for almost 2 weeks, FAAR Industry took part in COP 22 – the annual United Nations Climate Change Conference in Marrakesh, Morocco. This event gathered signatories of the United Nations convention on climate change and all the interested stakeholders aiming to enhance the climate state.
Since our foundation, at FAAR Industry, we work on technological solutions to protect the environment. We developed several concrete projects such as an electric vehicle Supervisor, the Cross-Drive patent or autonomous driving technologies to enhance energy saving.
Our participation in this major event started days before the official inauguration in Casablanca, Morocco, where our Director of Innovation, Mr Randolph TOOM, attended the first conference on sustainable mobility – “Assises de la mobilité durable” – organized by Moroccan Railways Company (ONCF). Mr. TOOM spoke there (see the video here) and gave our vision on how the new technologies that we implement, can develop sustainable mobility in Morocco and other African countries.
The official launch of COP was on Monday, November 7. Together with our partner VEDECOM, we presented a new democar «VFLEX» at the booth of Universtiy Mohammed V of Rabat, in the green zone (zone of innovation). This demonstrator is an 100% electric car which integrates some autonomous driving technologies together with wireless induction charging system.
During the Conference, we received various special visitors like Moroccan and European politicians, media and scientists, who shown a great interest in our platform. Princess Lalla Meryem of Morocco was one of our main guests. The Minister of Industry, Trade, & New Technologies, Mr Moulay Hafid ELALAMY, The Minister of National Education and Vocational Training, Mr. Rachid Belmokhtar Benabdellah and The Ambassador of the European Union, Mr. JOY Rupert also visited our booth.
Our demonstrator drawn attention of local and international media. 2M, one of the official channels in Morocco, interviewed our CEO, Mr. Khalid AYOUCHE (find the video below), who introduced our innovative platform to the large public.
