GSM Fuel Monitoring Telemetry - Watkins Hire are the UK,s only specialist temperature control rental solutions company to have GSM fuel telemetry fitted to its entire fleet of ADR rated bunded fuel tanks from 1000 litres. This system measures fuel levels throughout the length of the hire requirement. The levels are monitored at our head office and contact is made with the site when fuel deliveries are required. Watkins Hire can then utilise its fuel suppliers to make the delivery and ensure that the end client has no downtime due to fuel running out and no unnecessary nuisance breakdown call out charges.

Fault Reporting Telemetry - Boiler and chiller units can all be fitted with our industry leading telemetry units that report a number of common faults straight to our service department.
