Emirates National Oil Company said its digital fuel delivery unit, Enoc Link, supported Dubai Municipality’s nation-wide disinfection drive by supplying more than 30,000 litres of fuel to undertake various sanitisation measures across the emirate.
The company has been supporting the nation-wide disinfection drive since March 31. Dedicated delivery trucks fuelled 140 vehicles and 62 critical equipment of Dubai Municipality with free petrol and diesel, said a statement from Enoc.
The Enoc unit had dedicated two diesel and one petrol truck, which were located at the Dubai Municipality’s headquarters and efficiently served all of Dubai Municipality vehicles and equipment without delay and on the spot. Enoc later gave an additional petrol and diesel fuel truck each.
This contributed to saving more than 152 hours of the disinfection fleet’s time that would have otherwise been needed for fuelling, including transport to service stations.
Enoc Link’s uninterrupted support enabled Dubai Municipality to boost the efficiency of its operations, said the statement.
More than 20,000 litres of petrol and 8000 litres of diesel have been used for Dubai Municipality’s vehicles for its equipment including 62 generators and disinfection equipment, it added.
Group CEO Saif Humaid Al Falasi said: "Our primary aim is to support the national goals of Dubai and the UAE Government. ENOC Link has been designed to provide convenient, digital technology-enabled fuelling services for organisations operating across all industrial sectors."
"This initiative underpins our commitment to supporting the UAE government in fighting this pandemic and in its work towards improving safety and work efficiency," noted Al Falasi.
For the first two weeks, around 12 staff from Enoc Link worked daily on the operation to ensure the safety of drivers and helpers, as well as the well-being of the Dubai Municipality’s staff, he stated.
A leading integrated international player in the oil and gas sector, Enoc operates across the energy sector value chain. Its general business operations include automotive services, non-fuel F&B retail and fabrication services.
Enoc Group has launched multiple initiatives including complimentary disinfection to 1,000 vehicles of Department of Economic Development and Dubai Police by AutoPro, as well as supplying 3,000 litres of oil lubricants to Dubai Ambulance to support the UAE Government and health authorities with their various initiatives to address the Covid-19 situation, he added.
