JIANGXI, China, Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire-Asianet/ --

Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co., Ltd. (Zoomlion), sent a 
large-scale laundry truck and a team of engineers to Poyang Lake, Jiangxi 
Province of China on July 13 to support the fight against the flooding caused 
by weeks of torrential rains in China since June.

Coordinated by Emergency Management Department of Hunan Provincial Fire 
Brigade, Zoomlion joins Logistic Support Team to provide laundry services for 
flood fighters and affected residents in Luming Primary School Temporary 
Emergency Shelter.

"Laundry is a big problem for us to maintain personal hygiene and prevent 
diseases in temporary settlement. Thanks Zoomlion for the timely help," said 
local resident Wang. 

"To keep clothes clean and disinfect can effectively prevent health risks from 
floodwater. Now we can offer laundry services to 600 to 700 people daily," 
introduced Ren Fang, Service Engineer of Zoomlion. "At such stressful time when 
flood fighters and rescue teams work for long hours to safeguard residents' 
lives and many victims have been severely affected and must move out from their 
home, we hope to build a clean and healthy environment for them," added Ren.

Zoomlion's large-scale laundry truck is designed for emergency rescue scenarios 
with strong working capacity and ultra-quiet design. It can wash and dry up to 
100kg of clothes in a single task in about 1 hour and can clean a variety of 
garments including rescue apparel with one-button control. 

Zoomlion also participated in two flood fighting drills of "building temporary 
roads and bridges" and "blocking breaches" in Hunan Province with 20 high-end 
equipment including emergency bridge trucks, excavators, bulldozers and mining 
dump trucks, and a rescue team of more than 50 people.

"We believe that our corporate value comes from the society, therefore we 
actively take on our social responsibilities," said Li Jiangtao, President of 
the Trade Union of Zoomlion. "We will continue to build a series of advanced 
emergency rescue equipment and a professional emergency rescue team to create 
more value for the society," added Wang.
