EBARA Delivers Drainage Pump Trucks for Disaster Recovery

EBARA CORPORATION (EBARA) delivered five drainage pump trucks to Fukuoka Prefecture to reduce flood damages at the time of disaster.

In recent years, due to climate change, the number of large typhoons and localized heavy rains has been increasing in Japan. It is concerned that this will lead to more severe water-related hazards. There are also urban water-related disasters.

As a result of local population growth and housing development, the water retention function of forests and soils of fields has been lost. It causes larger-than-planned amounts of rainwater flowing into drainage systems. As the risk of water-related disasters is expected to increase in the future, drainage systems are required to be more reliable and agile than ever before.

There are 20 first-class rivers in the Kyushu region. Many rivers including branches and waterways support people’s life and industry in the region. However, once a water disaster occurs, the impact on the community such as flooding due to overflowing of rivers as well as flooding into the underground could be significant.
