The Hygiène et salubrité du Cameroun (Hysacam) announces that the French group Renault Trucks will deliver some of the 211 trucks it needs, in March 2018. The second delivery is scheduled for June.
“The rolling stock that Hysacam will acquire to ensure the cleanliness of the cities of Cameroon, is reputed to be more efficient and more resistant than the 2011 generation trucks. Driving comfort is improved. The gearbox is robotic. In other words, the driver is assisted by an automaton that controls the gearbox, “says Hysacam’s CEO. He added that the performance of new trucks will also be evaluated in terms of their profitability, particularly in terms of fuel consumption. The robotic gearbox will, in fact, induce an intelligent consumption, so economic fuel.
Led by Michel Ngapanoun, CEO of Hysacam, at the end of 2017, HYSACAM teams met with the managers of CFAO and Renault Trucks. As a first step, Mr. Ngapanoun and Jean Marc Touret, Deputy Director General of CFAO Cameroon, met in Paris on November 8, 2017 for a working session with the Group’s Chairman. Mr. Ngapanoun then went to Renault Trucks headquarters in Lyon on November 10, 2017, to visit the truck assembly plant.
At the end of these two missions, the various stakeholders agreed on the truck delivery deadlines, subject of the agreement signed in October 2017, in Yaoundé, between Hysacam, Proparco and three banks (Bicec, Societe Generale Cameroun, Ecobank).
