Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC Group) has introduced a new fleet of fuel distribution trucks compliant with the latest international health, safety, and environment (HSE) standards, according to a company statement.
The new fleet of trucks are powered by the latest technologies and are all complying with ADR, the European Agreement for the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road.
ENOC says the new vehicles ensure safe driving, reduced driver fatigue, increased fuel-efficiency, as well as vehicle stability and accidents prevention.
Furthermore, the body of the new tanker is made of lightweight aluminum, which increases the fleet’s operational efficiency by 65% from 2.3 kilometers per liter to 3.4 kilometers per liter. This also reduces stress on the truck’s engine, which ENOC says will cut maintenance costs by 22%.
“We firmly believe the importance of adhering to stringent guidelines when it comes to sustainability and safety, and our new fleet of trucks stands true to our stance on it. We have been a pioneer in fuel distribution in the UAE and with the help of innovation, technology, and digitization; we have created industry benchmarks in [HSE] that benefit our customers and consumers,” Saif Al-Falasi, ENOC CEO, said.
According to the Emirati company, the new fleet of trucks is driver-proof through an Electronic Stability Program, a novel concept in the automobile industry to eliminate vehicle rollover and maintain the stability of the truck. Moreover, the program monitors the tilting tendency of a truck and supplies more air electronically into the air bellows on the opposite side to stabilize the vehicle.
