Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 27 May 2019:   ENOC Group has announced ambitious plans to strengthen its retail and service station network by 2020 to meet the requirements of Expo 2020 Dubai. 

ENOC Group will further expand its retail network to 191 from its current 129 service stations across the UAE in the lead up to Expo 2020 Dubai as its Official Integrated Energy Partner. Alongside, the Group will also expand its local presence across the Northern Emirates through reopening service stations in Sharjah; Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah. 

In 2019, ENOC plans to open 15 service stations across the UAE, with five service stations and three compact stations in Dubai. The Group will also move forward with its plans for Sharjah by opening five service stations in its reclaimed locations; one new service station in Fujairah, one in Ras Al Khaimah and three compact stations.

His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group Chief Executive Officer of ENOC, said: “We are committed and well-prepared to support the UAE's expansion vision by building a robust fuel retail infrastructure needed in the run up to EXPO 2020, expected to attract over 20 million visitors, and beyond.
 
“In addition to meeting the needs of this world-class event, we are also focused on expanding our footprint across the UAE to ensure that the communities we serve have easy and convenient access to fuel and other automotive, F&B and convenience store amenities.”

By the year 2020, the Group plans to build a total of 47 service stations, which will include 25 stations in Sharjah, four in the Northern Emirates and 15 stations in Dubai, three of which are confirmed at the Expo 2020 Dubai site, in addition to three compact stations. 

The compact station is a new fuelling format introduced last year offering customers accessible and convenient refuelling services. The first of these will be in Sustainable City, while future stations will be located in residential communities operated by Emaar and Meydan.


In 2017, ENOC announced that all future service stations will be powered by Photo-Voltaic (PV) solar panels. ENOC currently operates more than 14 service stations in Dubai using solar energy, generating an estimate of 651 MWh of electricity across its retail stations since 2017, which is equivalent to 80 homes' electricity use for one year.


The service stations in Sharjah will also have provisions to install PV solar panels once solar energy is integrated into the Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority (SEWA) grid.

ENOC's new service station at the Expo 2020 Dubai site will follow the new design concept of the Ghaf tree, which symbolises the Year of Tolerance observed by the UAE this year. The service station will be contemporary, sustainable, and will feature a unique architecture design that uses the latest technologies such as use of carbon-fibre, a material that is three times stronger than steel, and wind turbines which will be used to generate about 30 to 40 Kw (Kilowatt) of energy to run the station.

ENOC is at the edge of latest technologies and has launched an innovative payment system with the use of ENOCPay, a cashless, cardless payment solutions app for both fuel and non-fuel products at ENOC and EPPCO service stations. The Group is a forerunner of innovation in the energy industry for payment solutions including ViP, a RFID based payment system.
