ROVR Lancar Sistem Kontena Mudah Alih Mini Pertama Untuk Berkhidmat Di Kawasan Terpencil Di Beaufort

Beaufort, Sabah, 17 January 2021 – ROVR, the mobile refuelling service from PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB), today launched its first Mini Portable Container System (Mini PCS), in collaboration with the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (MDTCA), to provide the community in Kampung Limbawang, Beaufort, Sabah with easier access to fuel.

The Mini PCS was designed to serve remote areas located 10km or more away from a petrol station, as part of ROVR’s Rural Development Plan and the Ministry’s community drumming programme which aims to ensure communities in rural areas have access to sufficient basic necessities at the same prices as in urban areas. With easier access to fuel at retail pump price, local communities in rural areas will be able to carry out their daily activities with ease, thus helping to promote the development of small-scale entrepreneurs and boost local economy.

The Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, Dato Sri Alexander Nanta Linggi who officiated the launch, said, “I am happy to see this effort by PDB via ROVR to help the rural communities in East Malaysia. This augurs well with the Ministry’s mission of increasing reach via our community drumming efforts through a systematic, safe, and community-empowered way since the Mini PCS is operated by a local.”

During the pilot phase beginning late November, the 5,000-litre Mini PCS, which operates daily from 7am to 7pm, has served close to 3,500 vehicles and dispensed over 30,000 litres to date. PDB plans to expand the initiative to more remote areas within Sabah and Sarawak with potential sites being as far as 50 kilometres away from a petrol station.

Speaking at the launch, PDB Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Azrul Osman Rani said, “We are very pleased to collaborate with the Ministry to introduce the Mini PCS here in Beaufort, Sabah. The launch of this innovative solution marks a milestone in our effort to ensure energy accessibility that is crucial to fuel social and economic growth. Furthermore, ROVR has proven to be pivotal during crises, serving restricted areas under the EMCO and flood-hit areas. Today’s launch further validates our strategy to provide solid business solutions that also serve community needs and is fully aligned with our promise to make your life simpler and better.”

Currently, ROVR serves businesses in the Klang Valley, Kuantan, and Johor by offering direct delivery of fuel. It also serves everyday drivers in communities affected by floods and other calamities when needed.
