First portable petrol station opens in Dubai
Catering to the growing need for petrol in and around the emirate’s newer residential communities, the Enoc Group has introduced a revolutionary new concept that has seen the opening of the group’s first portable petrol station in Arabian Ranches. The pilot station is designed to cater to residents living in residential communities and is equipped with one tank fuel dispenser and a vending machine.
Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Enoc Group CEO, said: “four more stations are underway and set to be completed in the first quarter of 2019. Each fueling unit can be dismantled, relocated and reinstalled at locations in just 30 days. The 30,000-litre tank at the compact station can provide fuel to around 400 cars per day.”
With the fuel tank stored above the ground, the station can easily be reassembled and moved to other locations and offers several smart pay options. The double wall design and build of the tanks are certified to international standards and the community’s CCTV cameras are connected to the petrol station and the security center.
Completely sustainable, the compact fueling station is equipped with solar PV panels and is fitted with technologies that contribute to enhancing energy efficiency. One such technology is the vapor recovery system that enables the recovery of up to 70% of gasoline vapor emissions.
