The future of power generation doesn't necessarily rest on new fuels alone, but also the better tracking and management of the equipment itself. MHM has been pushing this agenda for some time now, and has recently stepped up its five-year collaboration with Trackunit to address a significant gap in the collection of data in the UK’s power generation market.

MHM anticipates better monitoring of the performance of generators in the field and management of activities for a better response time through Trackunit’s internet-of-things (IoT) solutions.

“We are delighted to be working with Trackunit, another fast-growing company with a business ethos very similar to our own,” said MHM Group Managing Director Mat Llewellyn. “This will allow MHM to provide next-level connected equipment for which we will have better data to support our customers to an even higher standard.”

Each MHM generator will have a detailed digital lifelong logbook - similar to a car logbook - that will track it to a specific generator, its performance, servicing and updating requirements. The new service, known as ‘MHM Link Live’ will be delivered by a new division of MHM in association with ‘Works with Trackunit’. It will have huge benefits for MHM Group and its customers, as the new data stream will help to drive efficiency, reduce costs and equipment downtime.

“This really is the future of plant – allowing us to track performance of our generators whilst on site, enabling us to monitor faults and repair and service quicker,” continued Mat. “It will help not only us as a business, but also our customers, as we will be providing a much more intuitive service to the end user.

“This will also set MHM apart as a differentiator in the hire-to-hire market, providing our customers with innovative and integrated solutions. MHM Link Live will also give us accurate and enhanced data to develop help us develop our future fleet."

Trackunit’s CEO, Soeren Brogaard said: “As we see a shift towards a more open and transparent industry, we are delighted to work with the MHM Group under the new ‘Works With Trackunit’ partner brand which unlocks huge value and increased business efficiencies, not only from MHM internally but for their customers as well. We are happy to work with MHM on this digital transformation and see it as a path to eliminate downtime and be useful for the construction industry.”
