Service Support & Frameworks
Availability of a water control system is paramount and the inability of an asset to operate when required can have serious and life threatening consequences to the public. In order to further support our customers, we offer tailored service and framework agreements comprising of routine preventative maintenance and emergency 24/7 365 day response. Dependent upon specification, our systems are supplied with the ability to be remotely accessed, especially in the waterways sector, as assets are often located in hard to reach areas – some even becoming inaccessible under certain conditions.
