  • Description

    IN THE INDUSTRIAL SECTOR OF DAR ES SALAAM, TANZANIA, AT THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE MOUNT CARMEL RUBBER FACTORY, GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND LOCAL BUSINESSMEN GATHERED YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) TO SEE THE DEMONSTRATION OF A NEW MULTI-PURPOSE TRUCK WITH A COLLAPSIBLE TANK. AMONG THOSE PRESENT TO HEAR INVENTOR YAZDANI EXPLAIN THE WORKING AND THE USES OF THE TANKER, WERE 2ND PRIME MINISTER RASHIDI MFAUME KAWAWA AND MINISTER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY A.M. BABU.

    THE BASIC IDEA IS THAT THE TRUCK IS EQUIPPED WITH A LARGE RUBBER TANK WHICH LIES FLUSH AGAINST THE FLOOR-BOARDS WHEN IT IS EMPTY. WITH THE TAIL-GATE UP TO GIVE THE SIDE OF THE CONTAINER SUPPORT, THE LIQUID IS PUMPED IN AND THE CONTAINER FILLS OUT AND GROWS INTO THE TRUCK.

    ALTHOUGH THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF THE COLLAPSIBLE CONTAINER IS TO CARRY UP TO 3,000 GALLONS OF LIQUID - IT HAS A COUPLE OF VERY INTERESTING VARIATIONS. IN THE FIRST PLACE, WHEN IT IS EMPTY IT IS MUCH LIGHTER THAN AN ORDINARY LIQUID-CARRYING TANKER; AND, ALSO WHEN IT HAS BEEN EMPTIED OF LIQUIDS, THE RUBBER SIDES OF THE TANK COLLAPSE FLAT TO THE FLOOR-BOARDS AND SOLID PRODUCTS CAN BE CARRIED IN THE TRUCK IN THE ORDINARY WAY. IN THIS WAY, EXCHANGE TRADE CAN BE CARRIED OUT WITH A LARGE NUMBER OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF PRODUCTS IN THE SAME CONTAINER.

    WHEN MR. YAZDANI EXPLAINED HIS INVENTION TO VICE PRESIDENT KAWAWA, MINISTER BABU, GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND BUSINESSMEN MAINLY CONCERNED WITH THE TRANSPORT INDUSTRY - HE WAS ASSURED THAT THE TANZANIAN GOVERNMENT WOULD GIVE FULL SUPPORT TO HIS PROJECT AND, FOR A START, THE FIRST PROTOTYPE OF THE COLLAPSIBLE TANKER WAS ACQUIRED BY THE GOVERNMENT.
