Mubasher: Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO) has launched the sultanate’s first green service station, according to a statement released on Wednesday.
Located in Rusayl in northeastern Oman, the new station includes various eco-friendly features, among them solar panels, LED lights, a vapour recovery system (VRS), and an electric vehicle (EV) charger.
“We are reaffirming our commitment to support the sultanate’s long-term renewable energy strategies to encourage people to lead environmentally conscious lives, and fostering a green and eco-friendly culture,” OOMCO’s CEO David Kalife commented.
OOMCO’s first green service station crowns the company’s long list of environmental preservation practices.
“We are not only diversifying our services, but we are also implementing progressive green technologies in line with our roadmap of leading innovations in the fuel marketing sector,” Kalife said.
The new station’s EV charger is an easy, convenient, and more efficient way to recharge electric vehicles. It also helps reduce greenhouse gases emissions. Moreover, the VRS will convert gaseous emissions to liquid, eliminating the release of petrol fumes.
