ADNOC opens 1st solar powered service station in Dubai: EVs welcome
ADNOC Distribution, the UAE’s largest fuel and convenience retailer, has opened its first service station in the Emirate of Dubai, located in Dubai Investment Park (DIP).
Commenting on the station opening, ADNOC Distribution Acting Chief Executive Officer Saeed Al Rashdi said: “We are extremely pleased to have opened in Dubai and to be serving customers in all of the UAE’s seven emirates. Dubai will be able to experience the high-quality service and product offerings that our customers across the nation have come to expect from ADNOC Distribution. At the time of our IPO in December 2017, we committed to expanding our service station footprint into Saudi Arabia and Dubai before the end of 2018. As promised, these initiatives have been delivered, with further network growth to come in 2019.”
The solar-powered state-of-the-art DIP station features six islands offering customers the same great choice when it comes to superior fueling products (E-Plus 91, Special 95, Super 98 and Diesel), service and retail offering. The station currently has a Géant Express convenience store, an Oasis Café, full ADNOC Lube services, and free Wi-Fi. McDonalds and KFC outlets will be opening in the coming weeks. The site also offers Electric Vehicle (EV) motorists a fast-electric charger which will recharge a car up to 80% in 20 minutes, accommodating two vehicles at a time.
ADNOC Distribution will roll out its Flex service across Dubai in the coming months following an initial free trial period which will enable customers to familiarize themselves with the fueling choices.
