The three-year contract will see Vivo Energy Uganda supplying approximately 3,000m3 of Shell Gasoil Extra (AGO) fuel and 45,000 litres of lubricants per year for the construction of the Moroto – Nakapiripit road project.

“China Road and Bridge is part of the China Communications Construction Group – one of the largest road construction companies in Uganda, whose involvement in the country’s road construction business dates back 15 years. We are obviously delighted to add them to our portfolio, and are especially excited to be involved in this project,” remarked Edward Walugembe, Head of Commercial, Vivo Energy on Monday.

The Moroto – Nakapiripirit project is a 74km road in the North-Eastern part of Uganda, and involves a complete upgrade from murram to full bitumen.

This road has been projected to bring to an end numerous complaints by Karimojong leaders and opinion leaders in Karamoja sub region in the north-eastern Uganda about government neglecting the region by failure at least to tarmac Karamoja roads and connecting the region with the national electric power like other regions seems to be disappearing.

In addition to this development, the region has now been connected with the national electric power

Walugembee noted that China road, with deal, will benefit from Vivo Energy’s speed of mobilisation and promise of supply reliability despite the remoteness of the site.

“Also instrumental in the contract win was Vivo Energy’s strong Customer Value Proposition (CVP) – tailored around high-quality fuels (Shell Diesel Extra) and lubricants (Shell Rimula), and strong Customer Relationship Management traction in the construction sector”, added Walugembe.

“This contract is very important as it ensures that we maintain our stronghold in the Commercial Fuels market in general, and in the Construction sector in particular, and also helps replace volume from a couple of our other road construction projects that are drawing to a close.”

Vivo Energy is also the key supplier for other major roads such as Fortportal-Bundibugyo, Nyakahita-Kazo, Mbarara-Ntungamo Katuna, and Kampala – Masaka and was the supplier for the recently completed Kabale- Kisoro, Nakasongola-Karuma, and Masaka- Mbarara.
