This week Ryan Beck and Tyler Astleford are attending the NETA PowerTest Conference in Anaheim, CA. This conference brings together industry leaders with a goal of strengthening industry knowledge and improving the quality, safety, and reliability of electrical power systems across North America. Both Ryan and Tyler are looking forward to sharing their newly acquired knowledge with clients and co-workers upon their return.
Monashee Spirits Craft Distillery is anticipated to open in Revelstoke this month, producing spirits and cocktail bitters using locally sourced organic grains. Team Power Solutions' Cory Osmundson has been working with Jenn & Josh McLafferty (owners) to automate the entire distillery. As part of the design, temperature sensors have been installed at every point of the process. The sensors communicate to a local HMI for monitoring and alarms. The historic temperature data is recorded and is used for making adjustment for future recipes. The next step for Cory will be the in-house development of a phone application that will allow the owners to control the whole process remotely including a valve controlled cooling system. Jenn & Josh will soon be able to enjoy a powder day on the hill with the family while they brew.
Team Power Solutions' impressive growth in 2016 was featured in the APEGS - The Professional EDGE Magazine. A portion of the growth can be contributed to the engineering department tripling in size to support our field service, manufacturing, instrumentation, major projects and training divisions. Congratulations to our Engineering Supervisor, Ben Gibb, and his team for this honourable recognition.
This week we are at the 2017 Industrial Safety Seminar hosted by the Saskatchewan Safety Council at Evraz Place in Regina, SK. The trade show portion is open to public from 1pm to 3pm. Please come visit us at booth 642 !
Yesterday's career fair at the Sask Polytechnic Campus gave students an opportunity to make direct contact with potential employers. Team Power Solutions was excited to participate and discuss future opportunities with the students. Team Power Solutions is a business that is strongly tied to the technologies field; therefore, we actively participate in the co-operative work program that allows students to gain valuable hands on work experience. It is important to note that our management team, administration and technical service divisions are comprised of a large number of Sask Polytechnic graduates.
Team Power Solutions is a proud distributor of 2G Combined Heat & Power (CHP) Generators. These modular unit CHP generators are a great turn-key solution to reduce energy cost, increase reliability and improve sustainability. The CHP generator offsets site utility electricity consumption and peak demand fees, while the unit’s heat recovery system provides thermal energy for on-site heating loads. Available for commercial or industrial applications at 50kW to 2MW. For more details, please visit the 2G website, view the Product Profile, or contact TPS directly at 1-306-384-5552.

Last week Team Power Solutions was excited to participate in the Saskatchewan Renewables Independent Power Producer & Supplier Information Session. This event was a gathering of leading industrial contractors, renewables technology providers, manufacturing and related service companies, electrical contractors and specialized consulting firms with experience in utility-scale renewable projects.
At Team Power Solutions, we ensure our workers are properly trained. This is why we have made the investment to have electricians trained to install medium and high voltage terminations at the Pfisterer factory in Germany. Please contact us directly for more information on how we can assist you on your next project.
Team Power Solutions is now testing rubber insulating gloves & sleeves, live line tools and protective grounds. High voltage rubber insulating gloves, rubber insulating sleeves, live line tools and protective grounds, are fundamental components for protecting workers from electrical shock caused by contact with energized electrical components. High voltage testing can identify electrical breakdown and leakage currents that exceed the maximum limits set forth in the ASTM Standards. Identifying and replacing defective electrical safety equipment can be lifesaving. Please contact us directly for more information.
We are pleased to be hosting the following training courses in November:
High Voltage Electrical Safety - QEW Training
November 1st-2nd, 2016, in Saskatoon
November 22nd-23rd, 2016, in Regina
Industrial Electrical Safety for Non-Electrical Workers Training
November 24th, 2016, in Regina
Qualified Electrical Worker Refresher
November 3rd, 2016, in Saskatoon
