Réunion to get new eco-friendly station



JOHANNESBURG – ENGEN, the African energy multinational, has announced a new eco-friendly service station concept in Réunion.

The site will serve the community of Beausejour – a full-scale new urban eco-development joined to the town of Saint-Marie near the capital Saint-Denis.

The development will take the form of an “eco-city”, consisting of 2 000 homes built on 80 hectares over the next ten years.

Having won Beausejour’s call for tenders for a green retail service station, Engen is now finalising project details, said Mike Cook, Retail Services Manager for Engen’s International Business Division.

He said construction will start in three months and should be finished by year-end.

Drikus Kotze, the General Manager of Engen’s International Business Division, said Engen had a solid track record of implementing energy- and water-saving measures across its retail networks and other areas of our operations.

“But this this takes our retail environmental performance to a whole new level,” said Kotze.

Hervé Maziau, Managing Director of Engen Réunion, said the company was proud to take a leading position among its peers in the oil industry, in keeping with the progressive environmental stance of the island itself.

Engen has operated in Réunion since 2012. The company has a presence in 18 countries in sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands.

The site in Reunion ill combine cutting edge environmental features with leading service station and convenience functionality, officials said.
