Deployment in extreme heat: MAN TGS to be used in building roads for oil and gas production sites
First vehicles for Turkmenistan's oil and gas company
The MAN TGS WW trucks are equipped for deployment in conditions of extreme heat, as summer temperatures in Turkmenistan can reach up to 60 degrees Celsius. The 61 tipper trucks all have a power rating of 360 HP and a gross permissible weight of 33 tonnes. With two driven rear axles, these 6x6 all-wheel drive vehicles are especially suitable for use as heavyduty tractors.
MAN will be delivering these off-roaders from May onwards. The local importer is assuming responsibility for maintaining the vehicle fleet in Turkmenistan.
The quick repairs and supply of parts in such an isolated region played a major role in the choice of the MAN TGS WW.
