New green vehicles for MICTSL
23 Feb 2012

New equipments were commissioned at MICTSL Toamasina this early January. In its commitment to protect environment by reducing gas emission, MICTSL management opted for three electric service vehicles for the Engineering Service Group.

Guido Dempewulf, MICTSL Engineering Manager, commented: ”the utilization of this type of vehicle will further reduce our fuel consumption as they are fully electric and fit for container terminal usage. We are proud to be the first to use them in Madagascar !”

The vehicles will be used by the crane, mobile and facilities section for all transport within the port premises. Having a loading capacity of 1360 kgs with a maximum range around 55 km, they perfectly correspond to the need of the terminal.

As early mentioned, they are the first of its kind in Madagascar and intended to be an important part of the “green initiative” of the company.
