Major fleet deal sees ENOC take delivery of eight new C 380 Tractor Heads from Renault Trucks
Dubai’s ENOC Group has taken delivery of eight new C 380 Renault Trucks models, which will be used to deliver fuel to the Group’s service stations across the United Arab Emirates, the country’s leading energy player announced.
All vehicles are supplied through United Diesel, a member of the Al Rostamani Group, Renault Trucks’ exclusive authorised distributor for Dubai and Northern Emirates.
The purchase of the new trucks, which will enhance the Group’s existing fleet, is in line with ENOC’s plans to partner with leading global brands that offer customer-friendly, cost-effective solutions.
Renault Trucks and United Diesel will be delivering the highest standards of specialist after-sales support to ENOC, including 24/7 support, driver and technician training, and a comprehensive repairs and maintenance contract.
The Renault Trucks C 380 Tractor Head 6×2 with rear liftable axle offers superior driver comfort, exceptional reliability and optimal fuel efficiency, making it ideal for regional and long-haul applications. It is equipped with a range of features ensuring a high level of safety, for the driver as well as for other road users.
The cab of the C 380 is built around the driver. All controls are at the driver’s fingertips, while there is also a 7’’ HD LCD information display and seats with fitted red seat belts designed by Recaro. The design of the windshield and side mirrors guarantee clear visibility around the cab with minimum blind spots, essential for helping keep other road users safe.
Other safety features include an automatic parking brake, EBS (Electronic Braking System), ESC (Electronic Stability Control) to help maintain route stability control in difficult conditions, and AEBS (Advanced Emergency Braking System), which uses a radar unit and a camera to detect an imminent risk of collision.
The LDWS (Lane Departure Warning System) alerts the driver when it detects the vehicle is unintentionally deviating beyond the lane markings, so they can react in time to avoid an accident.
“Working with reliable partners such as Renault Trucks and United Diesel will without a doubt allow us to enhance our operational efficiency and adhere to best HSE and industry practices,” commented Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, ENOC.
“The C380 is an ideal truck for fuel tanker applications, where a robust chassis is an essential factor in its selection, while offering equally unbeatable standards of safety, reliability and cost-effectiveness,” remarked Guillaume Zimmermann, Commercial Director, Renault Trucks Middle East.
“United Diesel is very pleased to be a strategic business partner for ENOC. We are confident that this important order will pave the way for a longer-term association with ENOC as a preferred supplier for future projects,” observed Mokhles Makary, General Manager, United Diesel.
