Bee’ah adds Ducati e-mobile vehicles to its fleet

SHARJAH, November 6, 2019

Bee’ah, the sustainability pioneer of the Middle East, said it has joined hands with its waste collection and management division Tandeef, to introduce Ducati electric mobile waste collection units to its existing fleet, while continuously promoting the Sharjah-based group's sustainability agenda.
Developed by Ducati Energia, part of the Italian company, Ducati Group, the one-seater vehicle is capable of handling almost 200 kg, including the driver, and can reach a speed of 50 km per hour. 
The innovative electric vehicle (EV), a first-of-its-kind in the UAE, is the most recent addition to Bee’ah’s existing line of EVs. 
The deployment of the electric mobile waste collection units coincides with Bee'ah's strategy to ensure that its entire fleet is environmentally friendly and to improve the company’s waste management services to ensure a sustainable environment in Sharjah and the UAE, said the statement from Beeah.
Charging stations for these electric vehicles (EV) will be installed throughout residential areas in Sharjah, it stated.
The "shed style" charging stations are fully integrated in a network that connects the energy provider with the electric vehicles, and complies with the highest European standards. They are also equipped with radio-frequency identification technology, in addition to a remote connection linked to the central office, to monitor the fleet and its operation, it added.
Commenting on the new Ducati vehicles, Group CEO Khaled Al Huraimel said: "Bee’ah aims for its entire fleet to run on clean energy over the next few years. This new fleet furthers the company’s sustainability agenda by adopting an eco-friendly solution and cementing its commitment to reduce carbon emissions in order to support Bee’ah’s goal of improving air quality in the UAE."
"This move is a testament to Bee’ah’s efforts in enhancing the quality of life and pioneering sustainable living in the UAE and the region," he stated.
Overall, Tandeef’s eco-fleet will continue to provide a significant contribution to reducing the company’s carbon footprint. In 2018, Bee’ah became the first organisation to order Tesla’s electric semi-trucks in the Middle East, said Al Huraimel.
Also in 2018, Bee’ah partnered with Crescent Enterprises to launch ION, the region’s first commercial sustainable transport company, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
