OUR MISSION

Continue to be the premier electrical service company in western Canada.  We will provide unparalleled customer service, professionalism, and ability by continually upgrading our skills and treating our employees, community and environment with respect and dignity.

OUR COMPANY PROFILE

PCA Valence Engineering Technologies Ltd. is the result of a merger between two companies who raised the quality of service available in the electrical industry.  We are a full service electrical international testing company with acceptance, commissioning and maintenance testing experience. 

INDEPENDENT ELECTRICAL TESTING, MAINTENANCE, AND CONSULTING SERVICES

 PCA Valence Engineering Technologies Ltd can provide an unbiased opinion of your equipments condition as we are not influenced by any manufacturer.  Ensure your new or existing electrical equipment will operate in tip-top shape with comprehensive testing by our experienced staff. 

Scope of Services

Project Management

 Provide management of electrical scope delivery related to upgrades, repairs, turn-around, new installations and start up services on electrical systems and equipment. 

Maintenance and commissioning of Transformers

  Electrical maintenance and commissioning tests including:  Visual inspection, record gauge indicators; turns ratio, HV power factor, sweep frequency response analysis, winding resistance and insulation integrity tests; sudden pressure relay test, temperature gauge checks, test control circuits, such as alarms, trips online gas monitoring, and fan controls, Oil Quality and Dissolved Gas analysis, PCB Content. Perform tap changer tests, repairs and inspections.  

Transformer Erection

 We can provide transformer assembly service, i.e. install radiators, bushings, conservators, any parts shipped loose, vacuum fill transformer oil.  

Transformer Oil Processing

  Portable oil processer capable of heating oil, filtering and vacuum processing transformer oil. Can be used to filter contaminants, drying oil with excessive moisture, reclaim contaminated oil using Fullers Earth process, add oxidation inhibitors to oil. Processing unit is ideal for smaller transformers and has minimal mobilization costs.  

Maintenance and commissioning of Circuit Breakers and Starters– Low, Medium, High Voltage

  Electrical maintenance and commissioning tests including:  Visual and mechanical Inspection, contact resistance and insulation Integrity tests, timing tests on Medium and High Voltage CB, mechanical and electrical operation of breakers, fill breakers with SF6 gas and test SF6 gas integrity.  

Maintenance and commissioning of Disconnect Switches – Low, Medium and High Voltage

  Electrical maintenance and commissioning tests including:  Visual and mechanical inspection, operate switches mechanically and electrically, contact resistance and insulation integrity tests.
