UAE’s fuel retailer Emarat has signed a partnership deal to supply gas cylinders directly to households in Dubai.

The partnership agreement with Aquacool Metering, a subsidiary of Dubai Investments’ Emirates District Cooling (EMICOOL), will make Emarat an exclusive distributor of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for Aquacool’s entire residential, commercial and industrial portfolio.

The deal is the first stage in Emarat’s growth strategy in the LPG market. The company seeks to increase its customer base and provide innovative services and solutions across various industries within the UAE.

“[The initiative will] allow us to distribute LPG cylinders directly to the end users in the emirate of Dubai, through our exclusive partnership with Aquacool,” said Ali Khalifa Al Shamsi, director general of Emarat.

“We are aware that there is intense competition out there, but our strengths and in-house capabilities equip us to face all kinds of market challenges,” Al Shamsi added.

With the partnership, Aquacool’s customers in Dubai will get their LPG cylinders from Emarat via a fully integrated and automated online portal and application, which will be available 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

Customers will also be allowed to use contactless card machine payments when they book a delivery, to adhere to public health and safety measures during the coronavirus pandemic.
