A new suburban development being built near the city of Tampere will be home to 13,000 inhabitants, creating approximately 5,000 jobs in the process.
The suburb of Vuores will have a total of 124 collection points and 368 waste inlets. The system's daily collection capacity for dry waste, bio waste, paper and recyclable cardboard comes to a combined total of 13,000 kilos.
The MetroTaifun® Automatic Waste Collection System (AWCS) was selected by Vuores for a number of reasons, including:
1) Energy efficiency: it consumes only 1/3 of the energy compared to conventional pneumatic waste collection solutions, and 1/2 of the traditional waste collection truck and container based collection method.
2) Cost efficiency: lower initial investment, including faster and lower-cost installation.
