Video: ADNOC Distribution celebrates first three stations in Dubai
ADNOC Distribution, the UAE’s largest fuel and convenience retailer, has celebrated this week the opening of its first three service stations in the Emirate of Dubai, located in Dubai Investment Park (DIP), Umm Eselay and Al Qusais. ADNOC Distribution operates in all seven Emirates.
An opening celebration, held at the DIP station, was attended by Abdulla Al Qubaisi, the Operations Director at the Investment Cooperation of Dubai, Saeed Al Rashdi ADNOC Distribution Acting Chief Executive Officer and Officer Nasser Al Hammadi, ADNOC Distribution Chief Retail Officer Nasser Al Hammadi, as well as esteemed guests from government entities and partner companies from Dubai and other Emirates. Simultaneous ribbon cutting ceremonies were also held at the Umm Eselay and Al Qusais stations.
Speaking at the event, ADNOC Distribution Acting Chief Executive Officer Saeed Al Rashdi said: “ADNOC Distribution’s entry into Dubai is our opportunity to showcase to customers our great service and products. I would also like to acknowledge our partners in these three stations, ICD, with whom we worked closely to enter the Dubai market.
“Dubai is a vibrant and dynamic city, and as a market it offers enormous potential for further expansion. Today is just the beginning of our journey in Dubai, with further expansion to come inside the UAE and internationally in 2019.”
At the opening ceremony, attendees were treated to a live art performance as leading Dubai mural artist Ramy Elzaghawy used an ADNOC Distribution fuel truck as a canvas on which to create a unique design that celebrates the company being the first fuel retailer in the UAE with a network servicing the entire nation.
The original art piece uses the national symbol of the falcon in its imagery – which is also ADNOC Distribution’s logo – as well as acknowledging 2019 as “The Year of Tolerance”. The fuel truck, which took several days for Ramy and his crew to paint, was signed by VIPs attending the celebration and will soon begin a tour stopping at ADNOC Distribution service stations across the nation.
The three state-of-the-art solar-powered stations in Dubai offer customers more choice when it comes to superior fueling products (E-Plus 91, Special 95, and Super 98 gasoline, as well as diesel fuel), great customer service and the retail offering expected in an ADNOC service station. The stations all feature Géant Express convenience stores, Oasis Cafés, free Wi-Fi and Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers that recharge electric vehicles up to 80% in 20 minutes. The Umm Eselay station (located on the Al Ain Road) has five fueling islands, and customers will be able to enjoy McDonalds and Rainbow restaurants, which will open in the coming weeks. The DIP station features six islands, ADNOC Lube service, and McDonalds and KFC restaurants. Al Qusais station offers customers seven islands, ADNOC Lube service, and Burger King and KFC restaurants.
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.
