MAN Truck & Bus Jordan provides 101 new vehicles to Greater Amman Municipality
MAN Truck & Bus Jordan have delivered 101 MAN trucks to the municipality of the Jordan capital city of Amman.
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 4m3: 10x TGM 15.240 4X2 Refuse Collector 8m3: 2 x TGM 18.240 4X2 Skip Loader 9m3; and 4x TGS 41.400 8X4 Roll-on Roll-off trucks.
All vehicles have been supplied with a two-year repair and maintenance contract. 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 customized vehicles, designed to accomplish dedicated tasks,” he added.
Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) has been operating MAN trucks for almost a decade now. Over the years, the number of MAN trucks operating under GAM has significantly increased to almost 67% 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 Strategies is to improve their waste management system.
Each of MAN’s specially customised trucks are integrated with high-pressure washing equipment which enables deep cleaning of the waste water collection system. This ensures that waste is being treated hygienically and disposed safely.
“We take this major order as a sign that the Greater Amman Municipality has real faith in us. This is yet another milestone in a wonderful business relationship and it motivates and drives us to make customer orientation a top priority in vehicle development and service going into the future,” said Eren.
MAN Truck & Bus was established through their exclusive partner Integrated Automotive (IA) in 2008 in Jordan.
In 2019, MAN will celebrate over 100 years truck competence in the municipal sector of waste disposal.
