Continuing the fleet agreement made in 2015, Isuzu Malaysia recently delivered a new batch of 12 light duty trucks to Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) during a handover ceremony at Isuzu Hicom Malaysia in Pekan, Pahang. This handover marked the latest phase of the RM31-million deal, in which 200 units were initially procured, with the remaining units to be supplied to TNB by end 2017.
The 2-year fleet deal consists of the Isuzu ELF NPR 6-Wheeler Crew Cabs, which are customised to suit the national electric provider’s key task of serving the nation promptly and efficiently. Operating under TNB Distribution, the Isuzu light duty trucks would undertake its role as part of the field and rural support services. In addition, these trucks – which Isuzu says offer notably wider cabin space and better engine performance – would be supplied to TNB Distribution centres throughout the nation.
During the ceremony, the CEO of Isuzu Malaysia, Kenji Matsuoka, expressed his gratitude to TNB for the trust and recognition shown towards the company in tasking the light duty trucks to support the nation’s electrical needs. He added that aside from the enduring and robust qualities that the trucks had to offer, Isuzu Malaysia was always prepared to serve TNB with proper support and services.
The 12 new Isuzu ELF NPR 6-wheeler Crew Cabs were then officially presented to Mohammad Anas Ibrahim, Tenaga Nasional Berhad’s General Manager of Fleet Management Department.
The event also saw the flag-off of the new Isuzu light duty trucks by Mohammad Anas Ibrahim, joined by Othman Alias (President) and Noh Jaafar (Vice President) of Kesatuan Percantuman Pekerja-Pekerja TNB, to mark the distribution of the vehicles to TNB distribution centres nationwide. The ceremony ended with a commemorative photo session with the TNB drivers in attendance.
