(MENAFN Press) The fuel self-service introduced by Emirates Petroleum Product Company (EPPCO), to further enhance operational efficiency, has been extended to 15 more EPPCO stations and five ENOC stations from midnight to 6am

This takes the total number of fuel stations in the ENOC/EPPCO network offering fuel self-service during night hours to over 45. ENOC/EPPCO plans to implement the system across its entire network. Announcements for the public informing about the introduction of the service have been made at all the sites.

Among the new stations where self-serve is introduced are 10 service stations, which had earlier been closed from midnight to 6am. The introduction of the self-serve facility to these service stations adds to the convenience of motorists, who can conveniently meet their fuel requirements even during late-hours.

A company spokesperson said: "An increasing number of motorists are now utilising the fuel self-service facility. The recent activation of ViP (Vehicle Identification Pass), a radio frequency identification (RFID) based fuel retailing system at ENOC/EPPCO service stations, further adds to the convenience of commercial users and fleet owners, who can nveniently meet their fuel requirements securely. Our forecourt staff will extend all support to users of the ViP and self-serve.

At the sites where the fuel self-service has been introduced, customers can now fuel themselves and pay at the pump. Commercial users and fleet owners who have registered for the ViP service will benefit from automated operations, and can fuel on-the-go without the need to pay in cash or use credit cards. ViP automatically recognises the registered vehicle being fuelled, and deducts the cost from the registered user's account without the help of a service attendant.

Across the network, advanced and fully secure fuel dispenser systems have been introduced that are easier to use for the motorists. The introduction of self-service will result in no staff redundancies as affected staff members are being deployed in other service stations within the network.

The ENOC/EPPCO stations that operate as self-service during late hours are in Al Twar, Al Garhoud, Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Rasheed Road, Port Rasheed Road, Dubai-Al Ain Road, Al Waheeda Road, Jumeirah Beach Road, Ras Al Khor, Al Ghusais, JAFZA, Al Aweer Road, Al Quoz, Al Badaa and Al Nahda
