MachineMax empowers SMP Alliance to cut M6 project idling by 37%
The M6 Junction 21a to 26 Smart Motorway project, led by the SMP Alliance, aims to improve a critical 16km stretch of the M6 highway for better traffic flow and safety. To combat issues like fuel wastage and emissions caused by machine idling, the alliance partnered with MachineMax, providing real-time machine data solutions.
MachineMax's monitoring tool tracks equipment data, optimising operations, reducing idle time, emissions, and fuel consumption. Between 2022 and July 2023, they reduced idling from 56% to 19% and saved 3500 liters of fuel per month. Collaborative efforts and behavioral change training were key.
The project showcases how technology, collaboration, and data-driven decision-making can lead to sustainability and efficiency improvements in construction.
