MAN Truck & Bus Jor­dan has sup­plied 101 MAN trucks to Greater Am­man Mu­nic­i­pal­ity (GAM) for its waste man­age­ment op­er­a­tions. 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.

The Greater Am­man Mu­nic­i­pal­ity has been op­er­at­ing MAN trucks for al­most a decade now, and the num­ber of MAN trucks op­er­at­ing un­der GAM has in­creased to al­most 67% com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles in the main­te­nance and care op­er­a­tions in Am­man. The mu­nic­i­pal­ity is an in­te­gral part of the Green Am­man 2020 project 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 cus­tom­ized trucks are in­te­grated with high­pres­sure wash­ing equip­ment which en­ables deep clean­ing of the waste wa­ter col­lec­tion sys­tem. This en­sures that waste is be­ing treated hy­gien­i­cally and dis­posed safely.

Erhan Eren, head of truck sales, MAN Trucks & Buses Mid­dle East, said: “GAM man­ages ap­prox­i­mately 4,000 tonnes of solid waste a day, a 48% 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, which MAN was uniquely po­si­tioned to solve due to our wide range of cus­tom­ized ve­hi­cles, de­signed to ac­com­plish ded­i­cated tasks.”
