bp Connect Wanaka opens for business

Release date:
5 August 2020
bp Connect Wanaka opens its doors to customers at 8am on Wednesday morning offering customers bp’s full range of fuel choices, convenience shop, Wild Bean Cafe, car wash, jetwash and an EV fast charging station.
The new site provides bp customers with four choices of fuel – bp Unleaded 91, bp Premium 95, bp Ultimate 98 and bp Ultimate Diesel.
bp New Zealand General Manager of Retail and Assets Adrian McClellan says, “We know our customers have a choice when it comes to fuel retailers, so we choose the most convenient locations possible and work hard to give our customers as many reasons as possible to choose bp. We are delighted to bring our bp Connect and Wild Bean Cafe offering to Wanaka.” 
“Customers can use the BPMe app to pay for their fuel from inside their car, as well as to pre-order coffee – all designed to make the bp experience faster and easier.” 
The new site is conveniently located on Sir Tim Wallis Drive and is open from 6am to 10pm daily (car wash from 8am to 8pm). 
bp Connect Wanaka also offers an EV fast charging station, becoming the fourth EV charging station across the bp Connect New Zealand network.
“The contribution to the local community goes beyond building a new store. bp employs local contractors and teams, with 12 locally-based team members working at the new site,” adds McClellan.
bp Connect stores use energy efficient LED lighting, utilise recycled heat from refrigeration systems for water heating and collect re-usable rainwater from the rooftop.
The car wash at bp Connect Wanaka has been equipped with water recycling technology with up to 95% of the water recycled.
Wild Bean Cafe is the number one selling Fairtrade barista-made coffee in New Zealand and has been serving Fairtrade Certified coffee since 2008.
bp Connect Wanaka becomes the 109th bp Connect site nationwide with a further 104 bp dealer sites located around New Zealand. EV charging stations are also available at bp Connect Pakuranga, bp Connect Taupiri and bp Connect Warkworth as well as at dealer site bp 2go Redcliffs.
