Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation (PSPC) recently led the formal opening of the new Shell station that is poised to become the global blueprint for modern mobility facilities with environment-friendly features.
PSPC’s first ‘Site of the Future,’ located at Acienda Silang in Cavite, offers facilities to accommodate not only motorists and motorcycle riders, but also cyclists who want to rest and avail of refreshment drinks before continuing their journey. The company claims that the mobility station is the first of its kind on the global scene.
Special features of the new Shell station include an alfresco area for dining, as well as stop-and-go bicycle racks to encourage the public to start pedaling and stay fit amid the pandemic.
In support of global efforts to reduce carbon emissions, the site was also fitted with energy-efficient solar panels in its forecourt canopy to reduce electricity requirements. Adding to the environment-friendly approach are eco-bricks upcycled from used plastics and made into walls, outdoor tables, and chairs.
It is also the only Shell station to use a catch basin for rainwater, which will be used to flush toilets and water plants.
Digital screens welcome customers and guide them through the features of the facility. They can grab a bite at the Shell Select store using the Shell Go+ loyalty app for contactless transactions. Pilipinas Shell has partnered with some of the country’s well-known food hubs to satisfy cravings.
“Shell has invested consistently in mobility and the energy transition. This is more than a site opening; this is symbolic of our commitment of how we want to grow in the Philippines,” said Min Yih Tan, PSPC chairman of the board and senior vice president for mobility, during the virtual ceremony.
“This is not just a ‘Site of the Future,’ but the mobility site of today. Anything that we do provides value not just to customers but to society from convenience of motorists and even decarbonizing, which is the hallmark of the future,” Tan emphasized.
