UAE-based environmental management company Bee’ah has added 50 Tesla Semi trucks to its fleet, in a first for the region.

The company has confirmed the electric trucks, which are set to hit the streets in 2020, will be used for waste collection and transportation.

Boasting an existing fleet of more than 1,000 vehicles and a strong sustainability focus, Bee’Ah has already put electric vehicles to work as well as vehicles that run on compressed natural gas and bio-diesel.

"We are extremely pleased to turn towards Tesla for a solution that enhances our leadership of sustainable practices in the region," Bee’ah chairman Al Owais says.

"As a company that strives to be the best in our field, we only work with partners that we consider to be the best in theirs.

"Through this latest investment, we hope to demonstrate to others the value and importance of seeking out better, more viable ways of achieving our business aims, all for the greater good of our communities.

Bee’ah group chief executive officer Khaled Al Huraimel says the company is proud to bring the first Tesla trucks to the Middle East.

"As a torchbearer for environmental responsibility, Bee'ah's move to bring the first and largest fleet of Tesla Semi trucks to the region is a significant milestone in our operational evolution," Khaled Al Huraimel says.

"Sustainability is at the very core of what we do, and the pursuit of this feeds into every level of our organization.

"That is why we have made this investment in our transportation fleet, which occurs with a view towards a larger goal - achieving the objectives of the National Agenda for UAE Vision 2021."

Bee’ah is also set to bring Tesla’s Powerpack Battery Technology to its environmentally responsible net zero energy headquarters being constructed in Sharjah, UAE.
