DUBAI: ENOC Group recently opened two new service stations in Lehbab and Al Qudra in Dubai. The expansion comes as part of the Group’s strategic plans to strengthen its retail presence across the UAE and in line with its support to the Government through providing uninterrupted fuel supplies and services to communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The opening of the two new service stations, both in key locations, takes the total number of ENOC service stations now in the UAE to 147.
The Lehbab service station is conveniently located along Lehbab Road and will provide retail, fuel and automotive services to commuters traveling to Jebel Ali; while Al Qudra station will cater to the needs of the communities residing in Al Qudra area such as Arabian Ranches, DAMAC Hills, Mudon and Sustainable City.
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, ENOC Group, said: “Our retail strategy is focused on expanding a robust retail network that will enable us to offer customers easy access to fuel, automotive and retail services, while identifying opportunities to better serve communities across the UAE. Our new and strategically located service stations will further add to the convenience of our customers in meeting their daily needs, especially during these difficult times when people are encouraged to stay home; or within the vicinity of their residential communities.”
Both service stations follow global best practices in retail fuel services in construction and automation standards. The stations have CCTV surveillance as well as automatic number plate detection cameras to ensure high security.
The stations also feature new generation double 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 sustainable 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 at both 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.
