These fuelling stations will be placed in the parking areas of urban locations. The pilot station is in Arabian Ranches to serve adjoining communities too. With an anticipated capacity of 30,000L, ENOC will be able to fuel 400 vehicles per day.
The fuelling unit can be dismantled, relocated and re-installed at locations to fuel in 30 days. The compact fuelling station has been equipped with solar pv panels and several technologies to enhance energy efficiency, such as the Vapour Recovery System.
The pilot station is also equiped with a fuel tank set up above the ground, which facilitates the re-assembly and moving process to a new location. In addition, the pilot will deploy the installation of overfill prevention valve, audible alarm, pressure vacuum vents, and emergency vents for the inner and outer wall.
“The anticipated 25 million visitors expected to visit the UAE ahead of Expo 2020 Dubai presents a need in the market to innovate and offer our customers a new fuelling offering, which will serve areas where it is difficult to build new stations”, said ENOC Group CEO, Saif Humaid Al Falasi.
