MAN Truck & Bus Jordan has supplied 101 MAN trucks at Greater Amman Municipality (GAM), in an initiative to make the city of Amman cleaner and greener for residents and visitors
The new fleet consist of 35 x TGS 33.360 6X4; 40 x TGM 18.240 4X2; 10 x TGL 10.180 4X2 Refuse Collector 4 cu/m: 10x TGM 15.240 4X2 Refuse Collector 8m3: 2 x TGM 18.240 4X2 Skip Loader 9 cu/m and 4x TGS 41.400 8X4 Roll-on Roll-off trucks.
All vehicles have been supplied with a two-year repair and maintenance contract.
GAM has been operating MAN trucks for almost a decade now. Over the years, the number of MAN trucks operating under GAM has increased to almost 67 per cent commercial vehicles in the maintenance and care operations in Amman.
GAM is an integral part of the Green Amman 2020 to ensure that the city stays green and clean. One of Amman’s Resilience Strategy is to improve their waste management system. Each of MAN’s specially customised trucks is integrated with high-pressure washing equipment which enables deep cleaning of the wastewater collection system. This ensures that waste is being treated hygienically and disposed of safely.
Commenting on the tender appointment, Erhan Eren, head of Truck Sales at MAN Trucks & Buses Middle East, said, “GAM now manages approximately 4,000 tonnes of solid waste a day, a 48 per cent increase on the amounts seen in 2011. This has placed unprecedented strain on the solid waste infrastructure, which the investment is directly addressing.”
“Alongside typical domestic waste, the disposal of recyclables, construction site waste, bulky waste, electronic scrap, organic waste and sewage poses a major challenge for the waste industry – one that MAN Truck & Bus was uniquely positioned to solve due to our wide range of customised vehicles, designed to accomplish dedicated tasks,” Eren added.
MAN Truck & Bus was established through their exclusive partner Integrated Automotive (IA) in 2008 in Jordan. The partnership between the two is strengthened through their collective goal of serving customers and business owners alike.
In 2019, MAN will celebrate over 100 years truck competence in the municipal sector of waste disposal.
