MariMatic has secured new orders for MetroTaifun® systems in the city of Makkah, Saudi Arabia, as the supplier of Automatic Waste Collection Systems (AWCS). The latest order is for a new part of the city called Masar Makkah, where it’s core components - walking boulevards - are equipped with waste bins and over 210 plots with hotels and hotel apartment buildings are connected to a pipe network. The client is Umm Al Qura Development and Construction Company (UAQ).
Waste is collected by vacuum conveying to a transfer terminal, where the waste ends up in containers. This relieves the complete area from litter and waste bins with disturbing waste trucks. The system is dimensioned for up to 300 tons of waste per day. Just imagine the amount of waste trucks driving around emptying waste bins, or the amount of personnel needed to service litter bins along the boulevard. The new Design, Build and Operate Contract includes operation & maintenance until the end of 2030.
In addition, a new order with the Saudi Binladin Group (SBG) has been received, for the area of Mataf within the holy mosque. This area will be connected to the world’s largest Automatic Waste Collection System supplied by MariMatic. The recently secured contracts in Saudi Arabia totals 60 million euros.
