We work tirelessly to provide technically sound, practical solutions that ensure these systems perform as designed and operate safely and reliably. From the big picture, to the smallest detail, we create superior client experiences. We plan every project thoroughly, with emphasis on productivity and results at all stages while never sacrificing safety. Our policies and procedures are developed to meet or exceed all applicable legislation and all client safety programs… We ensure all workers go home safe every night.
What We Do
When overhead AC powerlines and metallic pipelines are close to each other, high AC voltages can arise on the pipeline metal due to coupling to the powerline. These voltages can present health hazards to workers and the general public. In extreme cases, the integrity of pipeline coatings and metallic walls can be affected. Our company specializes in the computer modelling of these situations as well as the design and installation of required mitigation and grounding measures.
