How to Approach Fuel Management in a Sustainable Way as a Site Manager

One important area of contract plant hire that has become a focus in recent times is that of sustainable fuel management. As a respectable plant hire service, we understand that not only can we assist our clients in acquiring the best plant hire machinery and equipment for their specific project and site needs, but we can also help them to optimise performance through a variety of ways, such as attachments for specific models of machinery, and now through clever management of smart fuel tanks.

Why is sustainable fuel management so important?

At Ardent, we are always doing what we can to improve our operation in order to reduce the carbon footprint of the company. We do this, as we believe in a sustainable future for all, we want to deliver greener options to our customers, and if it can inspire them to look at further ways in which they can also reduce their carbon footprint, all the better.

One major part of each company we work with is fuel management. The plant hire industry has been responsible for high emissions in the past, but as new technology becomes available in terms of machinery and equipment that use lower emissions without losing the quality of performance, and new smart fuel technology enters the scene, there are ways in which we can cut emissions and be smarter with how we manage fuel.

With the use of our smart fuel tanks, you can reduce the carbon footprint of your company, have greater control over route management, lower long-term costs, and spend less on fuel, maintenance and all other fuel management associated costs.

Sustainable fuel solutions for your site

Fuel-IT is the most advanced fuel tank you can find in the UK. It incorporates the latest in smart technology that enables the most precise fuel tracking and level monitoring. You can immediately access up-to-the-minute data at an individual asset level whilst seeing the overall bigger picture that gives you accountability and transparency.

Perfect for both small and large sites, you’ve got your hands on a reliable fuel storage option that provides cost savings on fuel procurement and simple data management to help you manage your fuel needs and analyse use for a better, more effective future.

Working with our smart fuel knowledge

Utilising our smart fuel technology will help you to manage your fuel in a much more accurate way than was previously possible. Tracking fuel data accurately, and up-to-the-minute, increases the transparency around your entire operation, improves accountability, and helps to increase the agility of your company. If you are working on a single site or working across multiple sites with a wide array of plant hire machinery and equipment in action at any given moment, saving fuel costs is a crucial part of your responsibilities and with the relevant fuel data at hand, you can be smarter with how you allocate resources and tweak your approach on future sites and projects to become more efficient and cost effective as a company.

Fuel management is a crucial part of any business. If you are working with our plant hire service already and wish to widen the scope of how we can assist you, or you are looking for professional advice to boost your knowledge of smart fuel management options, we are here to help. Smarter, greener, fuel efficiency is a priority for us all, and if we can set you on the right path by utilising our smart fuel technology, you’ll experience the benefits for many years to come.
