Successful Hyva tender to supply 12m3 compactors for waste collection services in Durban, South Africa
Hyva has won a 3-year tender to supply 12 m3 compactors, as and when required, to Durban Solid Waste (eThekwini Municipality) in South Africa. Durban is South Africa’s third largest city with a population of 3.1 million.
We have a great compactor, it's good to see it combined with Fuso Trucks working on waste collection duties in a busy urban environment.
The first batch of 29 Usimeca ribbed body 12 m3 compactors – installed on Fuso FJ16-230 trucks and customised with bin lifters – were delivered and handed over at a launch event attended by John Henry Bowman, Managing Director of Hyva Southern Africa.
“We are proud to have won this tender in one of South Africa’s largest cities. We know that we have a great compactor product and it is good to see it combined with Fuso Trucks and working on waste collection duties in a busy urban environment” said John Henry Bowman, Managing Director of Hyva Southern Africa. “A big thanks to our Application Engineer David Bikitsha for the hard work to meet the deadline and tender requirements”.
The Usimeca rear loaders supplied in this tender have a body capacity of 12.3 m3, a tailgate capacity of 1.5 m3 and a body length of 5.2 m.
