Isuzu Malaysia recently held a handover ceremony at the Glenmarie Golf & Country Club to officially mark the successful delivery of 61 new units of their light duty trucks, the ELF NPR75UKHW (Crew Cab), to Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB). The units were procured from Automotive Corporation Malaysia Sdn Bhd (ACM), an authorised dealer of Isuzu Malaysia.
The newly procured units are part of TNB’s fleet expansion for their support trucks. The trucks are expected to be utilised for field support services, having been customised accordingly to suit the national electric provider’s key task of serving the nation promptly and efficiently.
Prior to the official handover ceremony, a training session was held earlier that afternoon for TNB’s staff and drivers, with topics ranging from product theory, basic vehicle maintenance and pre-delivery inspection.
The 61 units procured by TNB are equipped with Roller Shutter function, aside from the double cabin interior that can comfortably accommodate up to 5 adult passengers. In addition, the 4HK1-TC Heavy Duty Common Rail engine delivers powerful output and performance, while ensuring fuel efficiency and reliability, to meet the rigorous demands of TNB’s day-to-day operations.
During his speech, Koji Nakamura, Chief Executive Officer of Isuzu Malaysia, conveyed his utmost gratitude to TNB for their continuous support and trust towards Isuzu Malaysia as their preferred vehicle partner. Nakamura is confident that the Isuzu trucks will assist TNB in ensuring that the nation’s electrical needs are met in a timely and reliable manner.
To commemorate the special occasion, Mohamad Radzi Omar, Chief Operating Officer of ACM Sdn Bhd, presented an appreciation momento to Datuk Viswanathan A/L Subramaniam, TNB’s Senior General Manager of Fleet Management.
