It’s been an exciting 3 months for the entire ONEC team!
On the project delivery front, a number of coal to gas conversion projects have kicked off! Our teams have nearly completed the first of seven potential units. This is a collaborative full EPC effort and many of our teams are involved including our project management group, surveying group, engineering group, insulation group, and scaffolding group! We’re also happy to announce our involvement in 50MWs of solar projects in southern Alberta! We are supporting these projects with engineering, survey, and racking/panel installs.
We continue to be impressed by our clients’ commitment to making improvements that ensure sustainability while still contributing to the local energy sector. We are honored to work alongside them!

ONEC Supports United Way at the 2019 Engineering Day of Caring
Volunteers from our Mechanical Engineering department spent the day at Operation Friendship Seniors Society (OFSS) McCauley Lodge. The day was a huge success! The group lucked out with the weather which made digging holes and hauling wheelbarrows to prepare a wheelchair accessible sidewalk for the residents that much easier! The volunteers were also hard at work building an entire patio with the team made up of volunteers from various other firms. Other projects at the site included expanding the outdoor concrete pad, rebuilding the damaged fencing, creating a bocce ball court, building a gazebo, and putting together planters for the residents to enjoy. The hard work was worth it all and we are so proud to have participated this year!

ONEC NWBC & Haisla Logistic Solutions – Doing Business in BC
It was serendipitous to hear the broadcast of the new BC legislation related to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples while we were attending and sponsoring the Nation2Nation Forum in Terrace BC, October 23rd -25th, 2019. This forum brought together First Nations, Government, Industry and Community Leaders to collectively discuss economic development and doing business with Indigenous Peoples.
Some of the guest speakers included the Chiefs of the Tahltan, Haisla and Nak’azdli Whut’en Nations, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, the Port of Prince Rupert, Pacific Traverse Energy, Chevron Canada, BC LNG Alliance, the Local Mayors of Terrace, Prince Rupert and Kitimat, the MLAs for North Coast and Skeena Ridings, and the Minister of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource.
Topics that were tackled at the forum included how to engage Indigenous youth in the local workforce, how industry can help alleviate the socio-economic impacts in local communities and the role of industry in the process of truth and reconciliation.
The collaborative presentations were not only informative but necessary for anyone doing business in Northwest BC.
