Purdue and ACREST are partners in developing affordable transportation and renewable energy for Cameroon and surrounding regions. The Basic Utility Vehicle (BUV) shown here was built by the NGO staff and Purdue students over a 3 week period, May, 2011. The BUV uses belts and pulley, and two chains, for the entire driveline, making it low cost, easy to replicate, and economical to maintain. Total vehicle cost including a small diesel engine is less than $2000 and needs only simple tools to build (cut and drill angle iron, welding).
