RENAULT TRUCKS WINS A JAPANESE GOVERNMENT CALL FOR TENDERS CONCERNING THE SUPPLY OF 16 VEHICLES TO SENEGAL
As part of its assistance program for emerging countries, a Japanese government agency issued an invitation to tender for the supply of 16 vehicles to Senegal. Renault Trucks, which is very well established in this country and enjoys an excellent reputation there, made the winning bid via a Japanese trading company. As a result, M. Takashi Saito, the Japanese Ambassador to Senegal, was recently presented with the 16 Midlum tankers which will be used to supply the country's rural communities with fresh drinking water. Renault Trucks will also be servicing and maintaining these vehicles, via its exclusive dealer, Sera Sénégal.
After winning a call for tenders issued by a Japanese government agency, in early summer, Renault Trucks delivered 16 Midlum vehicles fitted with water tankers to the Japanese Ambassador to Senegal, M. Takashi Saito. During an official ceremony, he, in turn, presented these vehicles, as a gift, to the Senegalese Minister for Water Supply, M. Oumar Sarr.
The vehicles will be used to make it easier for rural communities in Senegal to have access to clean drinking water. It is part of the Japanese programme to assist emerging countries, particularly in their efforts to combat the negative effects of climate change on local populations. The servicing and maintenance of the Midlum vehicles will be carried out by Sera Sénégal, Renault Trucks' exclusive dealer in the country.
Renault Trucks has been active in Senegal for more than 30 years, via an exclusive partnership with Sera Sénégal. It operates a full sales and Aftersales network fully compliant with the brand's standards, and holds around 70% of the Senegalese market. This is largely made up of companies working in the hydrocarbon transport, construction and container transport fields.
