Enoc Group has announced ambitious plans to strengthen its retail and service station network by 2020 to meet the requirements of Expo 2020 Dubai.
The company said it will further expand its retail network to 191 from its current 129 service stations across the UAE in the lead up to the Expo.
It will also expand its local presence across the Northern Emirates through reopening service stations in Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah.
In 2019, Enoc said it plans to open 15 service stations across the UAE, with five service stations and three compact stations in Dubai.
The group added that it 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.
Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO 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.”
By 2020, the company 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.
Enoc said its 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.For all the latest retail news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
