Delivery trucks have fuelled 140 vehicles and 62 critical equipment of the Dubai Municipality with free petrol and diesel.

Supporting Dubai's disinfection drive, a fuel delivery service firm vowed to supply the municipality with more than 30,000 litres of fuel.

Enoc Link, the digital fuel delivery arm of energy group Enoc, has been helping the emirate in its sterilisation campaign since March 31. Its dedicated delivery trucks have fuelled 140 vehicles and 62 critical equipment of the Dubai Municipality with free petrol and diesel.

Diesel and petrol trucks were stationed at the municipality's headquarters, serving all sterilisation vehicles on the spot.

This support helped Dubai's disinfection fleet save more than 152 hours, which would have otherwise been needed for fuelling, including transport to service stations.

Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group CEO of Enoc, said: "At Enoc Group, our primary aim is to support the national goals of Dubai and the UAE Government. Enoc Link has been designed to provide convenient, digital technology-enabled fuelling services for organisations operating across all industrial sectors. This initiative underpins our commitment to supporting the UAE government in fighting this pandemic."

More than 20,000 litres of petrol and 8,000 litres of diesel have been used for the DM's vehicles for its equipment, including 62 generators and disinfection tools.

For the first two weeks, around 12 staff from Enoc Link worked daily to ensure the safety of drivers and helpers, as well as the well-being of the Dubai Municipality's staff.

Throughout the operation, social distancing was maintained and other guidelines issued by the health authorities were followed. All staff deployed for the initiative were screened and used personal protective equipment kits, including face masks and sanitisers.
