Bor, South Sudan | February 24, 2016
Dalbit International South Sudan has commissioned its newly constructed fuel depot at the Bor Airport, South Sudan.
The 350,000 litres capacity depot, the first facility of that 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 John Paul Ongondi, the Dalbit International South Sudan Country Manager.
Jonglei State Governor Philli Aguer who was present at the event, hailed Dalbit International South Sudan for the milestone and pledged his government’s support towards private sector investments in the State.
“Anyone landing here can see that the face of the Airport is changing with the completion of this facility. I appreciate the work by Dalbit International South Sudan,” said the Governor.
Also in the commissioning ceremony, the Airport Director John Akuot, added that the facility was a timely investment to the airport.
“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 Petroleum South Sudan also donated and installed seats in the waiting lounge of the airport. This is in line with its policy of supporting its key stakeholders.
