The order consists of 320 hp SD32 bulldozers and 20-ton SE210 excavators, said Shantui officials. The company succeeded in procuring the order after several months of negotiation and bidding with AVIC International, they added.

The machines, which were shipped from China’s Tianjin Port, will be used as part of a programme that will employ youth to develop infrastructure in Zambia.

Shantui made a similar order in 2014 to the Kenya National Youth Service, said officials, enhancing its presence in African nations as a key equipment supplier.
