Baghdad, Iraq (June 24th, 2020)- Yanmar Europe and Qaswaa Al-Bararry have taken part in a project to disinfect and sanitize public areas in Baghdad in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus and protect the Iraqi community.

These generators use Yanmar’s heavy-duty but silent TNV engines. The equipment sprays a solution of liquid bleach and is being used to disinfect public areas in the cities.

“We’re proud to be part of this vital work to keep the citizens of Iraq safe,” said Ali Al-Obaidi, Director Manager |Qaswaa Al-Barrary “It’s important that together with support from Yanmar, we can offer a reliable solution that is quiet enough that it doesn’t disrupt citizens’ lives.”

Peter Aarsen, President of Yanmar Europe B.V. added: “We hope that this work will help reduce the chance of infection of COVID-19 and keep the people of Iraq safe. We’re very pleased to have strong partners like Qaswaa Al-Bararry to help us deliver positive health outcomes for their community.”

Residents expressed their gratitude for the work towards a speedy recovery for their community. The disinfecting activities are expected to be expanded to other municipalities and regions to combat COVID-19.
