KNPC signed a contract with Combined Group Company (CGC) to construct 10 new filling stations with modern designs in different areas of the country. The total value of the project is KD 15.47 million.
DCEO, A&C, Basem Al-Issa said the new stations are part of a package including establishing 19 stations and another contract will be signed later on to establish the other 9 stations.
KNPC CEO Mohammad Ghazi Al-Mutairi and CGC Vice Chairman Raad Al-Abdullah signed the contract at KNPC Head Office. A number of relevant figures of the two sides attended the event, too.
Al-Mutairi highlighted the significance of accomplishing the contract on time as it plays an important role in expanding services offered to the company customers and meeting the urban expansion in Kuwait, especially in the new residential areas such as Sabah Al-Ahmad and Wafra. It also contributes to decreasing pressure on the other filling stations in the neighboring areas.
He pointed out that the new stations will be built with a modern design that reflects the civilized image of the company and enables it to provide integrated and diverse services to the public. The 19 stations constitute the first stage of an ambitious plan for building 100 new stations, added Al-Mutairi.
For his part, Al-Abdullah expressed his pride in signing this contract with KNPC that will contribute to providing fuel services to residents of those areas, affirming that CGC has sufficient experience to build the stations on time and according to the assigned specifications.
As for the technical aspects of the contract, Al-Issa said the duration of the contract is 330 days, including providing stations with vending machines, spare parts & accessories sale and minimarkets. Each station includes administrative offices and a mosque, he added. Solar energy will be used to supply stations with alternative electric power which reflects the company interest in environmental aspects as well.
