Rally aces Ronald Sebuguzi, Arthur Blick Junior and Speedway motorsport club have collectively received a total of Shs.150,000,000 sponsorship for motorsport activities from Vivo Energy Uganda. 

Both champions Ronald Sebuguzi and Arthur Blick Junior received Shs.65,000,000 each from Shell V-Power and Shell Helix respectively, while Speedway motorsport received Shs.20,000,000 from Shell Advance as sponsorship towards the motocross championship.

The sponsorship from Vivo Energy Uganda - the company that distributes and markets Shell Fuels and Lubricants, will greatly facilitate and enhance the rallying careers of the two champions, and the whole rallying fraternity in Uganda.

Speaking at the handover ceremony at Shell Bukoto, Vivo Energy Managing Director, Hans Paulsen commended Sebuguzi and Blick for their brilliant and proficient expertise in the field of rallying and encouraged them to utilize the equally proficient Shell products (Shell VPower, Shell Helix and Shell Advance) to propel them to achieve the highest possible opportunities in their respective rallying careers. 

He noted that Shell V-Power is a high quality fuel that delivers improved responsiveness and power, actively cleans the engine and protects vital vehicle parts for better performance, giving drivers a more exciting drive. This sponsorship creates a platform for Ronald Sebuguzi as the Shell V-Power ambassador to demonstrate this excitement to our consumers and remind them of the benefits of Shell VPower.

The sponsorship also creates an opportunity for Arthur Blick Junior as the brand ambassador for Shell Helix to demonstrate to our consumers the ultimate protection provided by the lubricant for their engines and the extra responsiveness and efficiency it provides.

Paulsen also assured customers of the company’s commitment to meet consumer needs through continuous innovation to improve product offering and giving customers the quality fuels they deserve.

“We are proud to be associated with champions like Ronald Sebuguzi and Arthur Blick Junior together with Speedway motor-sports club and we pledge to support them in their championships to enable them deliver to Ugandans the rallying experiences that only Shell products can enable” Paulsen concluded.

Vivo Energy Uganda introduces 6kg Shell Gas with a burner and grill

According to reports from the Energy Ministry, consumption of LPG in Uganda has steadily increased from about 1,000 cubic metres in 1994 to 8,000 cubic metres today. To improve the customer experience for Shell Gas users in Uganda, Vivo Energy, the company that distributes and markets Shell fuels and lubricants has added a new innovation to the Shell gas category. The new Shell Gas 6kg cylinder, coming with a burner and grill. ; Dubbed “Ka-portable”, this new cylinder is a clean, safe, fast, convenient and affordable cooking solution.

Gas is increasingly gaining dominance among the Ugandan population as a source of cooking energy. It is likely to take over from charcoal that has for years dominated Uganda kitchens despite its cost and inconvenience. Vivo Energy today has added to its portfolio a 6 Kg Shell Gas cylinder with a burner and grill to increase convenience and cut costs, especially for beginners.

Shell Gas is currently available in 6kg, 15kg, and 45kg. The brand also offers a bulk gas solution for real estate developers, schools, hotel owners and industrial users.

The introduction of the 6kg cylinder with a burner and grill will encourage the use of cooking gas among the outdoor users, food vendors, new home owners and rural households that largely rely on charcoal, firewood or kerosene for domestic use.

Speaking at the launch of the new cylinder at Bugolobi market, Vivo Energy Country Sales Manager Edward Walugembe said that the company has over the past few years spearheaded efforts to educate the public on the use of gas. This includes offering training on safe handling of the product for the benefit of customers and the general public.

“This new 6kg cylinder with a burner is targeting the youth who do less cooking and vendors who have to warm food before serving it to their clients. It is convenient for the customer because it can be used without a cooker, one does not need a cooker to use it.” Walugembe said.

“Our bottling plant in Kampala has a daily filling capacity of 20 tonnes and operates under strict compliance with Vivo Energy’s depot operating procedures to ensure that the product sold is safe, of the highest quality, and fit for use” Walugembe further noted. 

Some environmentalists argue that if Uganda increases its consumption of gas for cooking purposes, it would control tree felling, which would lessen national deforestation. According to NEMA, Uganda loses up to 80,000 hectares, of forest annually.
