Shell Singapore has opened its newly refreshed station at Tampines Avenue 2, which has a broadened suite of offerings and station amenities. Designed as a “mobility oasis”, it aims to enhance the convenience and connectivity of the community, be it a motorist, cyclist, or a resident looking to refuel and recharge in between journeys.
The new station marks the launch of Shell-owned convenience retail store, Shell Select, and its own food label, Deli by Shell, which serves an assortment of pastries and sweet treats freshly baked on-site daily to enable busy individuals to grab and go. Deli by Shell also boasts a new range of ready-to-eat meals inspired by local favourites, and the first “Scoops of Happiness” concept, featuring an exclusive selection of local ice cream dessert creations developed through an inaugural collaboration with Wall’s.
Shell has also joined hands with McDonald’s to operate Singapore’s first 24-Hour Drive-Thru located in a petrol station. Focusing on takeaways only, this unique restaurant format caters to customers looking for time-efficient food options and one-stop convenience. Both drive-through and walk-in customers can look forward to enjoy their favourite breakfast and all-day offerings at the McDonald’s Drive-Thru.
Shell has also catered to a growing community of Personal Mobility Device users by creating the “Take a Brake” bicycle bay – the first of its kind in a petrol station. It serves to enhance the connectivity of Tampines as an ideal pit-stop for cyclists between journeys.
In addition, Shell has introduced new sustainability initiatives in the Tampines Avenue 2 station as a pilot in a bid to improve energy and water efficiency in its day-to-day retail operations. This includes the use of solar tubing in parts of the station canopy to reduce electricity usage in lighting up the refuelling area during the day; a rainwater harvesting system where water is reused to water the plants on the green walls and to flush the toilets; and the use of motion detectors, installed at specific areas of the station, to ensure that lighting is only activated when necessary.
