XUZHOU, China, April 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/– Leading construction machinery manufacturer XCMG (SHE: 000425) celebrates Earth Day with reduction in carbon emission from its application of Clean Energy Technology strategy in over 20 machine models. Over 2,000 clean energy technology adapted machines has been sold accumulative in global wide, products varied from electric crane, road sweeper, dump trucks, logistics vehicles, to liquified natural gas driven tractor, loaders, road roller and heavy trucks.
In March, XCMG won the bid for an RMB520 million (US$73.54 million) intelligent environmental sanitation PPP (Public-Private Partnership) project for 20 years of service in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province.
