ONEC, operating as the general contractor, recently performed engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning services for a power generation plant in High River, Alberta.

Phase 1 of the project aimed to produce 10 Megawatts of power generation capacity using sea can-based, gas-powered generators that feed directly to the power grid. Phase 2 (since awarded to ONEC) will twin the existing facility and increase output capacity to 20 Megawatts.

ONEC’s multidiscipline teams worked hand-in-hand to provide project management services, and electrical engineering services including area classification requirements for the site, the development of single-line diagrams, cable schedules/routing and distribution panels (120/208V & 600V), the electrical building layout, interconnection wiring diagrams, switchgear, relay settings, and the Master Control System PLC. ONEC also provided structural engineering for electrical buildings and skids and the review of pre-cast concrete pads for equipment support.

The procurement and construction scope included the supply and installation of permits, lights, panels, transformers, PLC, UPS, etc., located in the Electrical Building, as well as cables, cable tray, above-ground grounding and bonding, cable terminations and testing, conduit, and switchgear. Additionally, ONEC performed all installation of supplied vaults, transformers, a metering station, switching cubicles, etc., SCADA cabinets, the testing of electrical systems, and finally, the commissioning, start-up, and completion of the project, including QA/QC.

ONEC completed this project (over 10,000 man-hours) with zero lost-time injuries or incidents. The initial award of this project directly resulted from previous project success and industry reputation related to EPC scopes.

As always, we are grateful to our clients for this opportunity. We look forward to continuing to serve as an industry leader in peaking power facility engineering and construction, ultimately helping Western Canada bridge the energy gap.


We believe the only way to complete projects as you intended is to fully understand both your vision for the project and your decision-making process—this way, everything we do will be with your best interests in mind.
