Navankur Infranergy launches mobile service station for home diesel delivery
Nagpur-based start-up Navankur Infranergy said on Monday it launched a mobile fueling station that will deliver diesel to customers’ doorsteps across the city.
Launched by Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari, “Booster Diesel” will meet diesel demand from various end users at their doorsteps, according to a statement.
The mobile fuel station is a fully-built Mahindra Furio 11 – a powerful, fuel-efficient container truck with a dual-dispensing alpha mobile fuel pump – acquired from Pune-based Repos Energy, the company said.
“Our aim is to provide outstanding service to diesel consumers so that it benefits them and their businesses. We intend to start a door to door diesel delivery service from Nagpur and then spread it across Vidharbha in the next stage and then the whole state of Maharashtra eventually,” said Nachiketa S Pande, Director of Booster Diesel.
The new-era concept of delivering bulk diesel to customers’ doorsteps is spreading rapidly in the country, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Usually, heavy consumers of diesel have to source the fuel from retail outlets in barrels, causing lots of spills and dead mileage, the company said, adding that the problem can now be solved by delivery. of diesel at home.
Dead mileage refers to the amount of fuel wasted when a commercial vehicle travels extra miles to reach a gas station to refuel.
According to the company, the country consumes around 27 million liters of diesel per day, and 5 to 10% of this is counted as dead mileage.
