ENOC Group has recently opened a new filling station in Al Barsha, a largely populated area in Dubai-- as part of its growth plans aimed at developing 54 brand-new service stations by 2020.
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, ENOC, said: "The new filling station in Al Barsha underscores our commitment to use customers sustain services in key household areas, by providing convenience of accessibility to gas and other retail services, and increasing our reach throughout Dubai and the UAE. The new terminal will certainly supply alleviation for customers and reduce congestion at our nearby service stations.”
The new 40,002 sqft. solar energy service station uses a series of automobile services such as the tandem 8 bridge cover - 8 digital dispensers with phase two vapour recuperation system, DEWA electric car charging facilities, digital screens and smart metering.
Constructed in conformity with the new Dubai Municipality's Green Build guidelines, the excess power produced from the solar PV panels is sent back to DEWA's primary grid with a solar metre designed to track the power injected back to power grid.
The Photo-Voltaic (PV) photovoltaic panels mounted on the canopy roofing could create 120kWh (Kilowatt per hour) energy on an excellent day - making approximately 30 percent greater than the ordinary energy called for to run the terminal. Developed with UL Qualified dual wall containers and dual wall surface gas piping with additional containment, it stays clear of any environmental contamination. The service station is likewise geared up with a completely automated fuel system with Auto Tank assessing and electronic leakage discovery system.
The fuel system is built to cater to maximum flow rate based on National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) security criteria. The dispensers, developed with retractable pipes, allow refuelling cars and trucks from both sides lowering the wait time.
Outfitted with several energy saving innovations, the terminal releases Vapor Recuperation Systems (VRS) to prevent and regulate exhausts, while complete LED lights lower energy intake by 50 percent. Additionally, and VRF cooling modern technology contributes to conserving 35 per cent as compared with the traditional A/C system.
The station also has 36 totally integrated digital wall displays on forecourt columns and ZOOM corner store entryway, customers obtain details on latest offers and promotions offered at ENOC filling station and ZOOM, Pronto and Starbucks outlets. Customers will be able to receive live information, weather and web traffic updates from Dubai Cops and RTA.
The community in Al Barsha will certainly also take advantage of other arrangements like a drive-thru ATM and various other retail centers at the station consisting of Starbucks, Pronto and ZOOM, convenience store where they could pay DEWA and credit-card costs, Salik top-ups, and so on
ENOC had previously revealed that all future filling station will certainly be powered by solar power to sustain the UAE's lasting method to target a power mix that combines eco-friendly, nuclear and tidy energy sources. ENOC approximates greater than 23 GWh of solar energy will be created to power the brand-new stations by 2020, minimising the tons on DEWA's grid and power producing stations.
