Ebara delivers eight drainage pump trucks to Philippines
EBARA has delivered eight pump trucks for emergency drainage to The Philippines.
The drainage pump trucks, equipped with ultra-lightweight pumps (about 20 kg), a hose, an operation panel and a generator, is capable of flood damage prevention.
A big feature of this truck is the possibility of rushing to flooded areas and starting draining immediately with only a small number of people.
EBARA's technical staff held training sessions for local people on how to use the trucks to their full potential.
EBARA's pump trucks helped support the recovery efforts during the flooding in mid-July, when the Philippines were hit by a typhoon.
Recently, in Southeast Asia, the demand for flood control has increased; and early recovery from flood damage has become a major issue.
At this time, EBARA has provided Official Development Assistance drainage pump trucks.
The drainage pump truck equipped with EBARA pumps have also been delivered to Laos and Vietnam in Southeast Asia.
EBARA, which began as a manufacturer of pumps, will continue to contribute to the development of South East Asian countries through the provision of products and services.
