Bee'ah deploys electric mobile waste collection units in Sharjah's residential areas

beeah shaBee’ah, the Middle East’s sustainability company, and Tandeef, Bee’ah’s waste collection and management division, have added Ducati electric mobile waste collection units to their existing fleet

The aim is to enhance operations while continuously promoting Bee’ah’s sustainability agenda.

Developed by Ducati Energia, part of the Italian company, Ducati Group, the one-seater vehicle is capable of handling almost 200 kilograms of weight, including the driver, and can reach a speed of 50km per hour. Charging stations for the EVs will be installed at residential areas in Sharjah.

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 (RFID) technology, in addition to a remote connection linked to the central office, to monitor the fleet and its operation.

The innovative electric vehicle (EV), which is the first of its kind in the UAE, is the most recent addition to the Bee’ah’s existing line of electric vehicles. The deployment of the electric mobile waste collection units coincides with Bee'ah's strategy to make its entire fleet environmentally friendly and to enhance the company’s waste management services to ensure a sustainable environment in Sharjah and the UAE.

The efficiency of electric mobile waste collection units also contributes to the improvement of workplace standards and safe practices by limiting the number of employees working manually under direct sunlight. With health and wellbeing being at the heart of Tandeef’s operations, this latest addition to the fleet is another step forward for the company’s vision to improve the quality of life for all UAE residents.

Khaled Al Huraimel, Bee’ah Group CEO, said, “This new fleet furthers the company’s sustainability agenda through 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 for the betterment of living standards in the UAE.”
