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, maintaining our core expertise in the Edmonton area is the key to our long term, stable group of professionals.

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, exterior and emergency lighting, power distribution, power, communication (telephone, data) and instrumentation cabling and raceways, heat tracing, mechanical equipment power and control, security and UPS/Generator back-up power.  Ready also specializes in the 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 hazards.

Power System Studies

Modeling and simulating an accurate representation of the power distribution system is often an important aspect for many projects, such as greenfield industrial facilities, brownfield expansions, maintenece upgrades and building designs. With hands-on field investigations to acquire the requisite data, and industry-leading software like ETAP and SKM, Ready performs high-value, practical power system studies to design new facilities, expansions, enhancements, and to solve existing 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 mitigated or minimized in adverse situations. Moreover, in the case of electrical faults, rapid isolation of impacted busses prevents additional system damage and distribution equipment 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 expertise in a wide variety of electrical engineering fields, who are always interested and willing to visit client sites in order to offer customized services to best address our client's central concerns. Ready offers tailored training that clients can put into practice immediately to improve worker safety, 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.
