- ENOC Group will open 16 new service stations by end of 2020 and 24 stations by end 2021
Dubai: ENOC Group today announced its plans to open 40 new service stations by the end of next year, which will increase its retail network to 192 stations.
The Group is on track with its plans to open 16 service stations across Dubai, Sharjah, and the Northern Emirates by end of this year, as well as to open an additional 24 service stations by end of 2021.
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, ENOC Group, said: “As a leading energy player, we are committed to developing a robust retail infrastructure to serve the UAE for the next 50 years in alignment with the vision and aspirations of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.
“Our promise is to ensure that customers have access to an uninterrupted supply of fuel as well access to best-in-class automotive and retail services. Despite the challenging times, we have demonstrated our resilience and remain committed to serve the nation.”
The Group plans to build two marine stations at Dubai Harbour and Umm Suqeim to serve marine fueling needs of boat and yacht-owners. Both stations will be operational in Q4.
The new service stations will follow global best practices in retail fuel services in construction and automation standards and will be equipped with CCTV surveillance as well as automatic number plate detection cameras to ensure high security.
The stations will also feature new generation dispensers with retractable hoses to refuel cars on both sides. The fuel system has been designed to allow maximum safe flow rate as per the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) standards to reduce the overall refuelling time. Supported by its Auto Tank Gauging and electronic leak detection system, the fuel system is fully automated and reduces the potential for human error and the need for intervention.
Other energy efficient features include the LED lighting system, which is not only environment-friendly but also requires zero maintenance and safeguards against electrical and fire hazards. The lighting will help achieve 50 per cent reduction in the station’s overall energy consumption. Further, the air-conditioning uses modern VRF technology to reduce energy use by 35 per cent.
In line with directives that encourage community members to maintain social distancing, modern and safe contactless payment methods including VIP, ENOCPay, NOL, Dubai Now are accepted across all stations.
The service stations also have ZOOM C-stores, which offer customers over 7,500 products including confectionary and snacks as well as hot and cold beverages.
