ONEC has been actively involved in power and utilities since 2000 with multiple projects involving powerplant design. We provide innovative solutions to our clients in the fossil-generation, hydroelectric, cogeneration, waste-to-energy, and geothermal sectors. Our flexible and adaptable project delivery strategies mean we can customize our approach to suit your needs, whether that’s front-to-end service models including EPC, EPCM, and design-build, or individualized services like engineering and design, and construction.

We also provide project delivery services for remote Northern Canadian communities with diesel and hydropower generation systems.

Design Build - Generation

ONEC assisted a client with the install of 6MW of generation capacity at the client’s facility. The intent for the project is twofold – one being to consume waste gas and offset environmental concerns and two – to feed power to the grid. ONEC’s responsibility on this project was Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning.

Involvement: Design Build

Modular Water Treatment Plants

ONEC provided design and construction services to build five modular water treatment plants. Working from a conceptual design, and using treatment technology provided by GE Water and Process Technologies, ONEC undertook the detailed engineering to integrate the key process components into a modular structure that was constructed at its own facility in Edmonton. After a complete wet commissioning in Edmonton, the plants were shipped by truck to five remote communities in the Northwest Territories.

Involvement: Project Management, Process Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Fabrication, and Commissioning

Tank Farm Expansion

ONEC provided full engineering, procurement, and construction services for a tank farm expansion at a pharmaceutical facility in Edmonton. The client initially came to ONEC for a study as we had both designed and installed the previous tank farm expansion at the site. This project included four 50,000L, 316SS solvent tanks, loading/unloading facilities, pumps, metering, feed vessels, and filtering systems. Our team produced all engineering deliverables, procured equipment and bulk materials/tanks, and performed the construction.

Involvement: Engineering, Project Management, Procurement, Construction

ED Boiler Tubes Replacement

ONEC provided the complete replacement of 4 boiler fire tubes as directed by ABSA during a shutdown. Scope included the removal of older tubes, installation, and rolling, pressing, and welding to the tube sheet. ONEC also provided complete Hydrotesting and NDT.

Involvement: Project Management, Construction, Quality Control
