Saubermacher – High-Tech for Abu Dhabi 

Saubermacher launches full operation in Abu Dhabi +++ On-board computers deliver data in real time +++ Participation in the “World Future Energy Summit” a complete success.

Saubermacher transitioned into full operation in mid-January as part of the join venture “West Coast Saubermacher Environmental Services” in Abu Dhabi and is thus contributing to the development of a modern waste management system. Over 100 trucks supplied with state-of-the-art technology are in use and will allow the client to obtain exact information about locations, driving routes, and amounts gathered.

Since January 15th, a total of 900 employees have arrived, 126 of them driving special purpose vehicles such as press vehicles, trash lift trucks, and street sweeping machines in order to guarantee perfect environmental service. 30,000 bins and containers have been delivered and will, as of now, form the basis for the development of a modern resource management system based on the collection of sorted trash.

On-board computers installed in the trucks will transmit all relevant waste management data in real time to a data management system. This ensures the ongoing optimisation of all services from the very beginning. “In addition to getting all technical systems up and running, we also place emphasis on the ongoing training and further education of all employees,” as a further point of emphasis in the initial phase was explained by Peter Schmid, the operations manager assigned by Saubermacher. He adds: “That is the only way we can ensure that the level of service required is provided from the very start and that we, in collaboration with our partners, guarantee the highest client satisfaction.” In this situation it only seems logical that an app should be developed to help track the entire fleet. “Our partners value quality and client orientation”, Schmid further elaborated. Tools like the app or the 24-hour call centre strikingly serve to emphasise this orientation. The fact that quality and safety have the highest priority is proven by the company´s certifications for ISO 9001:2008; ISO 14001:2004; OHSAS 18001:2007.

West Coast Saubermacher was similarly able to impress at the “World Future Energy Summit”, one of the most important environment exhibitions worldwide, which took place from January 20th to the 22nd 2014 in Abu Dhabi. The company scored with its Austrian expertise and an impressive exhibition presentation of its services. “The WFES is an optimal platform for the presentation of our seminal solutions in waste and resource management. It was here that the challenges of increasing energy demands and necessary activities for ensuring a clean and sustainable future for our planet were discussed,” project manager and director of Saubermacher AG, Gerhard Ziehenberger explained.
