Vivo Energy Kenya opens a 23 million litre diesel storage tank in Mombasa

Vivo Energy Kenya has today opened a 23 million litre diesel storage tank at the company’s Mombasa terminal. The opening of this tank makes Vivo Energy Kenya the oil marketer with the largest diesel storage capacity in the country. 23 million litres of diesel can be ferried by 660 long haul trucks or 535 rail wagons. The company also opened a 5 million litres petrol storage tank.

The opening of these tanks increases the company’s diesel storage to 53 million litres, and Petrol storage to 29 million litres. Increasing diesel storage to this enormous amount, is a sign of growth in the industry with increased volumes being witnessed at service stations, manufacturing and agricultural sectors. Vivo Energy Kenya, is supporting this increased growth through this investment in fuel storage.

Diesel consumption at Shell service stations has grown significantly since November 2012 when Vivo Energy Kenya was formed to distribute and market Shell branded fuels and lubricants. This increased diesel consumption has created the need for additional fuel storage, which is now in place.

In the last three years Vivo Energy has increased the number of Shell service stations in Kenya by 54%, from 112 to 172. The company footprint has seen an increase of service stations across various counties.

The investment will also serve as an avenue of supplementing the current ullage received from the pipeline, and enable Vivo Energy Kenya to support inland and Vivo Energy Uganda business.

With the increased storage capacity, Vivo Energy Kenya will utilise the railway more to transport fuel from Mombasa to Nairobi.

Speaking during the commissioning of the new tanks Vivo Energy Kenya Managing Director, Mr Polycarp Igathe said: “Additional storage will enable Vivo Energy Kenya to support its rapidly growing retail business which has witnessed a 54% growth over the last three years.  It also increases flexibility to support inland markets like Uganda.” He added that the company will additionally save money on shipping demurrage costs as fewer fuel tanker discharges will be needed.

The tanks were officially commissioned by the Principal Secretary in the State Department of Petroleum, Mr. Andrew Kamau. Construction of tank number three, with a capacity of 23 million litres of diesel, and tank number four with 5 million litres of petrol took 10 months. The construction was done by local Kenyan contractors and consultants. It was completed safely without any injury or incident.

In the report Charles Nyende, former Kenyan rugby international is quoted as saying that “rugby has undergone tremendous growth in Kenya over the past decade - driven by the popularity of the sevens game - and that every child playing rugby in Kenya dreams of becoming an Injera, Ouma, or Kayange and playing on the world stage.”

Speaking during the partnership launch, Vivo Energy Kenya Managing Director, Polycarp Igathe linked motor vehicle fuels & oils to rugby players’ energy, adrenaline and blood rush: “When it comes to sports, most people identify Shell Helix Ultra with Formula 1. Here in Kenya we are bringing the same energy to Dala Sevens Rugby,” he said.

Speaking during the partnership launch, Dala 7’s organizing committee Chairman, Jack Kisero was excited about Shell Helix Ultra being the official sponsor of the tournament. He lauded the company for the sponsorship, support and involvement of Vivo Energy Kenya with the Dala Sevens tournament.

“This year, on this 11th edition, we start the process of transforming Dala 7s into a National Festival. And in this journey, we are gracious to Vivo Energy for their sponsorship. Thank you for investing in an event we deeply treasure. Your support shows that when you look at us, you not only see consumers, you see people who love rugby and you celebrate with us.” 

Also present at the launch was Vivo Energy Kenya’s Lubricants Sales and Marketing Manager, Stephen Gikonyo who talked about Shell Helix Ultra, a top tier synthetic motor oil made from natural gas using the unique Shell Pure Plus and active cleansing technology. Gikonyo explained that it offers engine cleansing and protection that no other motor oil in the industry can surpass, and that at Shell service stations we check the oil levels and offer free oil change for lubricants bought at the station.”

Vivo Energy’s annual Safety Day take’s place to encourage employees, contractors and partners to prevent safety incidents

See it – report it – prevent it

Nairobi, 26th May 2016 – Vivo Energy, the company that distributes and markets Shell branded fuels and lubricants in Africa, held its annual Safety Day today, with a focus on preventing safety incidents from happening.

The theme of the day - “See it, report it, prevent it” - encouraged employees, contractors and partners to continue to develop a culture of identifying and reporting potential incidents so that mitigation plans can be activated and incidents prevented from happening.

Vivo Energy’s commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest international Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) standards is at the heart of its business and in 2015 the company delivered industry leading safety performance with a TRCF (total recordable case frequency) of 0.26.

Commenting on Safety Day James Ngethi, Head of HSSE, Vivo Energy said: “Safety remains an integral and essential part of our daily operations and a critical priority for our business, our staff and our contractors.  Our annual safety day is a moment for all our teams to stop; reflect on safety issues; and ensure that we are doing everything that we can to achieve our aim of ‘Goal Zero’ - no harm to people or the environment.”

Ngethi added: “Vivo Energy has a very strong safety record, but there is always more that can be done.  We recognise that the key to great HSSE leadership is identifying and fixing potential incidents before they become actual incidents.  In 2015 we did a good job of reporting potential incidents, increasing the number by 73% compared to the previous year.  Through our actions today we will work hard to achieve our increased potential incident target and other HSSE goals in order to make continued progress to become recognised at Africa’s most respected energy business.”

Safety Day activities in Kenya included town hall meetings for employees; vehicle inspections, service station’s safety audits, commercial road transport partners forum, and safety quizzes.

Speaking during the Kenya celebrations, Polycarp Igathe, Managing Director Vivo Energy Kenya, emphasised that safety is all about a person’s attitude and it’s not just a one off activity.

“At Vivo Energy Kenya, safety is at the core of the business, and this is evident in all its operations. Employees in the company have embraced the safety culture beyond the organization and it’s become a lifestyle. The leadership supports the employees on safety and rewards employees’ safety initiatives.”

Eight more students benefit from Vivo Energy Kenya sponsorship in 2016

Every November the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examination is held. Over half a million students sit this examination, all with an aspiration to join secondary schools and further their education.


Unfortunately some students - although they performed very well in the exam - are not able to proceed to secondary school as their families cannot afford the fees.


One of Vivo Energy Kenya’s, (VEK) community investment focus areas is education, and with this in mind we looked for a partner who we could work with to make the dreams of some of these needy yet bright students be achieved. A partnership was inked with the Palmhouse Foundation, an NGO whose vision is to enable deserving students to realise their dreams, transform their lives, their families and society.


The foundation was formed in 2002, and has over 500 beneficiaries who have completed secondary school and over 230 have proceeded to universities.

Vivo Energy Kenya’s partnership with the Palmhouse Foundation commenced in 2014, when the first group of eight students joined the VEK family. In 2015 another eight students also joined and this year the trend has been maintained with a further eight students’ secondary school education being sponsored by VEK.

 

The criteria of picking the students was well thought out, and aligned to the previous country demarcations of Kenya’s eight provinces.  As we have Shell service stations in all eight provinces we decided to support students all across the country where we operate.

 

The sponsorship covers school fees for each student for their entire four years in secondary school. Palmhouse Foundation goes further than providing school fees, as they enable the students to be better citizens on completion of their studies.

 

Commenting on Vivo Energy Kenya’s sponsorship of the students Communications Manager Angela Munyua said: “It’s not about giving a man a fish to feed him for a day but teaching a man to fish so you can feed him for a lifetime. As well as the school education this teaching comes from mentoring sessions which are held in April, August & November as the start of the school holiday period. The students, gather in a designated location where they meet with mentors who listen to their experiences during their term, look at their performance and help the students set goals for the next term.  We are delighted to be able to support such a worthy cause.”

 

Having just completed the April mentoring session Catherine Irungu said: “I am very greatful for the sponsorship that Vivo Energy Kenya has given me. It is my dream to become a lawyer and i am working hard to ensure I achieve this goal. Vivo Energy Kenya’s support is a big boost to my aspiration and I will not let them down.”

 

The partnership between Vivo Energy Kenya and the Palmhouse Foundation is a perfect match since both organisations share values that touch on society, show respect, transformation and integrity.
