Irish Compressor Recovery
At times our Recovery Team at Enigma Telematics get some cases that are out of the ordinary, and this recovery was one such case. A Doosan 741 2x Tool Compressor was booked out on hire in mid-June, however, when the hire period ended the compressor was not returned. Our customer traced the machine and found that the compressor had made a trip across to Ireland and was working out of a farm area in County Leitrim, but was unsure how it got there and why.

They requested for the Enigma Team trace and locate the machine, which turned out to have been moved 15 miles and had been in an open field in Nazeing, Essex, however, it looked like some attempt had been made to comprise the tracking equipment by attempting to shield the vehicle, but had failed.
