Reducing fuel costs with A-Plant

TransTalk fuel-monitoring system

Plant hire firm supplies innovative TransTalk fuel-monitoring solution to Wyse Power

THE cost of fuel is one of the biggest costs when running generators. With this in mind, A-Plant are currently reviewing a number of innovative ways to help their customers manage fuel costs.

The company has, for example, fitted a TransTalk monitoring device to a 150kVA generator at the former London 2012 Olympic site, now renamed East Village, where Wyse Power are managing a number of temporary office blocks.

The TransTalk monitoring device offers Wyse Power the following benefits:  

  • Access to tank levels from almost any PC and smartphone device using a web-based user interface
  • Saves time and money by preventing unnecessary top-ups
  • Export of data in PDF, Excel and email formats for ease of reporting
  • Sends email alerts when fuel is low
  • Tracks fuel usage and ambient temperature when the generator is powering heating systems
  • Ability to overlay up to three tanks on a single graph for comparative analysis.

‘Fitting the device means we are able to monitor levels in the tank off site and request fuel top-ups when needed,’ explained Andy Hughes, project manager for Wyse Power.

‘We can account for all usage and monitor the equipment so it’s not left burning unnecessarily. This saves us time and manpower, which helps towards reducing our carbon footprint and increasing efficiency, as well as our bottom line. It’s an excellent system and shows that our partnership with A-Plant does not just stop at hiring the equipment, but finding solutions to deliver good service with mutual benefit.’

Gareth Conley, business development manager for A-Plant, commented: ‘We are always looking for innovative solutions which will not only benefit us, but also our customers and their stakeholders. TransTalk monitoring provides a cost-effective method for customers to demonstrate their green credentials.’
