Emirates Gas (EMGAS), a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), launched its first mini Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) daughter station at Emirates Driving Institute (EDI) in Al Qusais, Dubai. The facility has a storage capability of 1,500 cubic metres, sufficient to refuel around 200 Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV) — passenger cars or light commercial vehicles — each day.
Established on EDl’s property, this dedicated CNG station will offer a constant fuel supply to their fleet of 150 CNG automobiles. Management of the facility is assisted by RFID technology, cutting time needed for each refueling visit and reducing paperwork.
H.E. Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC, said: “Under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the government has actually already set out a blueprint for sustainable development. This future will only be accomplished if we, as citizens and residents of this country, make incremental choices that are better for the environment.
“The decision to switch to a car that makes use of CNG – a fuel that causes far less emmissions and is therefore better for the environment – is one such example of how we can alter our behaviour to help achieve the government’s vision.”
