In June 2015, the City of Cape Town took delivery of five brand-new Dulevo 5000 Veloce street sweepers. The launch of the five new sweepers was a cause for celebration for both the City of Cape Town and AAD Specialised Transport Solutions, which forms part of the AAD Group of Companies.

Representatives from the City of Cape Town, suppliers, contractors and manufacturers were present, eager to discuss how improved sweeping performance will contribute towards Cape Town’s reputation as one of Africa’s cleanest cities. In attendance was City of Cape Town councillor Ernest Sonnenberg, AAD Group chairman Roman Szymonowicz and contractor Babore’s managing director, Swys Joubert.

Making the trip all the way from Dulevo International’s headquarter- based in Fontanellato, Italy – Lapo Pazzagli, Mario Pepe and Davide Pinazzi were also on hand to demonstrate how the Dulevo 5000 Veloce can handle even the toughest kerbside debris.

Keeping a whole city clean is no mean feat and Sonnenberg sums up why the city decided to invest in top-quality sweepers. “As part of being a well-run city, we remain committed to taking a multitiered approach to keep Cape Town clean. These vehicles will be able to work efficiently on long stretches of arterial road, making these spaces cleaner, more pleasing to look at and more environmental healthy.”
