Dubai's first modular petrol station has now opened at Arabian Ranches. With a capacity of over 30,000 litres, the station can fill over 400 cars a day and was inaugurated by Mr. Zaid Alqufaidi, managing director of Enoc Retail and Mr. Ahmad Thani Al Matrooshi, Managing Director of Emaar Properties. Alqufaidi also reiterated his plan to set up more such modular stations, "specifically targeting residential communities, like Arabian Ranches."
The station features a state-of-the-art vapour recovery system that enables over 70% of the fumes emitted by the nozzle to be recovered as fuel and offers multiple payment options including mobile payment and RFID technology. The pump also features solar panels for a more sustainable design.
With the nearest petrol station almost 15-20 minutes away from the community by car, the new facility will provide residents with unprecedented convenience when it comes to refueling their vehicles.
