From the oil sands of Alberta and the gas fields of BC to the orchards of California, Ready’s electrical engineering expertise is tailored for industrial facilities and major utilities. Ready focuses on the projects that EPCM firms cannot handle effectively. Ready is dedicated to meeting your needs with responsive service and quality engineering; we want your project to be successful.

Headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, Ready’s electrical engineering group offers a complete array of electrical engineering services, from state-of-the-art utility generator protection systems to standard greenfield and brownfield power distribution, lighting, fire and gas detection, and heat tracing designs. While much of Ready’s electrical work is for clients out of our Calgary, Lethbridge, and US offices, our core expertise is maintained in the Edmonton area - one key to our success in providig Ready's clients with stable, long-term service via our teams of professional engineering consultants.

Please refer to the associated webpages to learn more about Ready's capabilities in our various areas of expertise, summarized below.

First Principles Engineering

Who specifies the motors, the mechanical or the electrical engineer? Ready expertise goes beyond pure electrical engineering with electro-mechanical engineers that understand the relationship between the power distribution system, the motor starting method, the motor itself, and the driven equipment. VFD, fluid coupling, or soft starter? Making the correct choice is the difference between brown out, break down, and carefree operation.

For all industrial facilities, from power plants to pipelines, agrifoods to fossil fuels, chemicals to composting, and whether for specialized expertise overseas or local service from Lethbridge, Alberta to Fort Nelson, BC, Ready has the electrical engineering professionals to make your project perform. For detailed information, please refer to our Electrical Engineering brochure.

Industrial Facilities

Our industrial clients know just how expensive it is to construct sophisticated facilities in remote locations. All of Ready's construction work packages are designed with extra detail where required and with an emphasis on quality control to save our clients time and money in the field.  Ready focuses on designing to contractor competency to ensure there is no wasted effort, while working side-by-side with owners and contractors alike to ensure nothing “falls through the cracks”. Ready takes great pride in its design work and we ensure the full effectiveness of our effort by producing exceptional construction work packages that minimize contractor questions, errors, delays, and extras.  

Building Electrical Systems

Ready’s wide range of expertise includes the engineering of building electrical systems.  Examples of building systems and services include interior and exterior lighting, communication (telephone, data) and instrumentation cabling and raceways, and heat tracing.  Ready also specializes in the detailed design of fire, gas, and other emergency alarm systems that require detailed design to ensure our clients’ employees, equipment, and facilities are protected from potential dangers as early as possible. Moreover, Ready customizes building designs for various area classifications and also offers verification services for as-built systems.

Power System Studies

An accurate picture of the power system is often the first step in any major industrial power distribution project. With hands-on field investigations to acquire the data and industry-leading software like ETAP and SKM, we model industrial power distribution systems and use the results to design expansions, enhancements, and to solve problems.

Protection

Our clients spend large sums of money on specialized mechanical and electrical equipment - it is essential that this equipment be protected in such a way that damage is minimized in adverse situations. Moreover, in the case of electrical faults, rapid isolation of the busses in question prevents additional system damage and facilitates repair.

Substation Design

Ready’s expertise includes safe and reliable substation design from the ground-up. From ground-grid design and testing to commissioning of the new equipment, Ready is experienced with equipment up to 500kV and specializes in substation design for all industries. 

Training

Ready employs technical experts with experience in a variety of electrical engineering areas. Personnel at Ready are always interested and willing to visit client sites in order to offer more customized service in meeting central concerns. In addition to listening to client problems and offering advice when possible, Ready offers formal training that clients can put into practice immediately to improve worker safety, and system reliability and performance.

 

For all industrial facilities, from power plants to pipelines, agrifoods to fossil fuels, chemicals to composting, and whether for specialized expertise overseas or local service from Lethbridge, Alberta, to Fort Nelson, BC, Ready has the electrical engineering professionals to make your project perform.
