Bor, South Sudan | February 24, 2016
Dalbit South Sudan has commissioned its newly constructed fuel depot at Bor Airport, South Sudan.
The 350,000-litres capacity depot, the first of its kind in the State, will enhance the efficiency and reliability of the company’s service to its customers in Jonglei State.
“Our investment in this depot is a commitment that we have a long-term vision for growth in this State and South Sudan as a whole,” said Dalbit South Sudan Country Manager John Paul Ongondi.
Jonglei State Governor Philli Aguer, who was present at the event, hailed Dalbit South Sudan for the milestone and pledged his government’s support towards private sector investments.
“Anyone landing here can see that the face of the airport is changing with the completion of this facility. I appreciate the work of Dalbit South Sudan,” said the Governor.
Also in the commissioning ceremony, airport Director John Akuot noted that the facility was a timely investment.
“We are upgrading from an airstrip to an airport and this facility by Dalbit South Sudan is helping us towards that process,” he said.
As part of giving back to the society, Dalbit South Sudan also equipped the waiting lounge of the airport with seats. This is in line with the company’s policy of supporting its key stakeholders.
