Either on top of the frame behind the cab or on one side of the frame rails if there is space for it.
You might have to extend the frame some to get it to fit and as the Actros is only a 2 axle single drive Euro spec tractor I would consider making it a 3 axle single drive with a pull or push axle or a 3 axle dual drive as a dump truck will go off road.

Well the tank is just a tank so you need a hydraulic pump, it's usually driven from a PTO on the transmission...PTO is Power Take Off...so you need a feed line to the pump and a high pressure line from the pump to the trailer, and a return line back to the tank.
Something like this.
