• Shell opens State-of-the-Art Retail Station along Mango Avenue

      There’s more than meets the eye to the new Shell retail station that just recently opened along General Maxilom Avenue last March 15.

      At first glance, you’d think that it’s just one of thousands like it all over the country. But you’d be wrong as it’s the first-ever retail station to showcase green features.

      Ricky Altonaga, the District Manager for Visayas of Pilipinas Shell, revealed this particular station was made to be an oasis for students (with several schools located nearby) and motorists alike.

      “This station’s concept was co-created by Shell with the University of San Carlos students and faculty, to make sure that we offer is relevant to them” Altonaga said.

      “We designed Shell Mango to be an oasis, a community hub where students can study at the second floor of our two-story Shell Select while public transportation is accessible to commuters at the PUV terminal that we have on-site,” he added.

      Aside from offering high-quality fuels using the latest sophisticated gas pumps in the market, visitors will also get to enjoy fresh food and drinks that won’t be found in any other gas station here in Cebu.

      You can also get your fill from kiosks such as Potato Corner, Shawarma, and Bubble Tea Station.

      And as part of Shell’s pledge to reducing environmental impact and promoting more sustainable practices, Shell Mango features green elements such as solar panels to help cut down energy costs and a self-irrigating plant wall to cut down the station’s carbon footprint.

      It also has a rain-water collector that allows the station to use run-off water for the plants in the landscaped area. The site also uses Knoxout exterior paint to convert air pollutants into breathable air. The station also fully utilizes LED lighting and inverter technology for chillers and air conditioning units for better energy efficiency. (Jonas Panerio)
