Vivo expands biggest station in Ghana; will have 18 filling points

Vivo Energy, which markets Shell products through a fuel retail network that expands through several African countries, has started works to expand the Airport Shell Service Station which is the country’s busiest and is located in Ghana’s Accra area.

Last update:

Vivo Energy’s Chief Executive Officer Christian Chammas cut the ribbon and said that the company is just meeting the needs of a fast expanding area by increasing the filling capacity with up to 18 points of this location which is already the country’s busiest, Vivo said.

The station will host several specialized shops, from pharmacy to a travel operator, in addition to restaurants, a tire center and “an ultra modern drive through washing bay,” the statement said.

 “Our aim is to provide an exceptional retail experience at each and every one of our service stations, reaching more people with better products and services wherever we do business. We are investing substantially in making this ambition a reality by refurbishing existing service stations, building new (with shops) and improving operational excellence across all of our sites,” Chammas said.

Vivo Energy, with over 1,500 service stations in Africa, is committed to investing around $300 million of capital in the next three years to fuel growth.  In 2014 Vivo Energy invested heavily in Ghana, opening 24 new service stations across the country – more openings than in any of its other 15 countries across Africa, the company said.

As part of Chammas visit, he also opened the new Shell refresh shop at motorway and opened new Shell Service Stations at Tabora, Agboba and Pantang, the statement said.

Vivo Energy was established in Africa only in August 2013.
