Mitsubishi Is Helping to Improve Waste Management in Sudan and Maldives

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation on 16 May 2024 announced the delivery of 60 medium-duty trucks to Sudan and 78 light-duty Canters to Maldives.

The units for both countries were delivered through a Japanese Government grant program known as Official Development Assistance (ODA). These grants aim to improve waste management, the environment, and achieve waste-related Sustainability Development Goals in the respective countries.

In Sudan, the population growth, especially in urban areas, has been accompanied by a serious increase in waste. The 60 specially equipped medium-duty vehicles to be delivered are related to the “Clean Cities Platform for Africa,” which aims to achieve waste-related sustainable development goals by 2030.

The project proposed by JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) under the “Plan and Preparatory Survey for Improvement of Waste Management Equipment for Clean Cities in Sudan” has been achieved as an ODA grant under an agreement between the two countries and will be used to improve waste management.

In Sudan, Mitsubishi Fuso sells light, medium, and heavy-duty trucks, as well as Rosa Buses through DAL Motors, Mitsubishi Fuso’s local distributor. DAL Motors trained the end users in operating the units.

The Maldives on the other hand, faces unique sustainable development challenges as an officially listed Small Island Developing State (SIDS). The nation consists of approximately 1,200 atoll islands in the Indian Ocean, and many of the islands have yet to establish proper waste management. The 78 light-duty Fuso Canters aim to help assist in this endeavor, reduce pollution, and improve public health.

In the Maldives, Mitsubishi Fuso sells light, medium, and heavy-duty trucks, as well as Rosa Buses through United Motors Lanka PLC, Mitsubishi Fuso’s local distributor. United Motors Lanka PLC trained the end users on operating the units.

The 138 units representing the two programs were secured with contracts through Mitsubishi Fuso partner, FutureBud International, a Tokyo-based trading company that secures special-purpose vehicles and works with Japan’s ODA program.

The vehicle chassis were assembled at Mitsubishi Fuso’s Kawasaki factory, and the cargo body with tailgate lift, garbage collector, container carrier, and dumps were mounted by Kyokuto Kaihatsu Kogyo LTD.
