MAN Truck and Bus (M) Sdn Bhd (MAN), together with Massenza Drilling Rigs, recently handed over a MAN TGS 33.480, 6x6 truck to the Department of Mineral and Geoscience Malaysia (JMG).
The truck fitted with Massenza’s latest hard rock water well drilling rig would be used across Malaysia, specifically at locations where ground water resources development projects are undertaken by JMG. This is to ultimately help expand water supply to water-stressed areas, especially rural ones.
“We needed a robust and reliable truck to handle the challenging task of water well drilling. MAN has an established reputation for its all-wheel-drive truck chassis that is a perfect fit for the demanding role of drill rigs,” said Dato’ Haji Mohd Za’im Abdul Wahab, Senior Director of Technical Services Division in Department of Mineral and Geoscience Malaysia.
With its all-wheel drive chassis, maximum traction, excellent stability and high ground clearance, the MAN TGS 33.480 6x6 is seen as the ideal choice for exploratory drilling and ground water prospecting. The all-wheel drive feature gives the truck the necessary muscle to cover difficult terrain, ensuring optimal power distribution across all the wheels.
“JMG’s decision to invest in the MAN TGS speaks of its progressive outlook to invest in first class technology that could help advance its goals and objectives”, said Jerome Wong, General Manager, Sales & Marketing of MAN.
“We are also delighted that we could work with Massenza Drilling Rigs, which has been building drilling rigs since 1921, for the drilling rig fitted to the MAN TGS. We look forward to continue our mutually-beneficial collaboration with Massenza Drilling Rigs to deliver high quality and time-tested solutions to our customers”, ended Wong.
