Simulating an automated plant for testing and training:

BESTECH was selected to design and build a new chemical production facility in Timmins, Ontario. The client required a fully automated plant to be operational within one year. To meet this timeline, BESTECH programmed and simulated the entire plant, enabling testing, training, and commissioning achieved concurrently.

A new standard for messenger cable installation:

At two client sites, traditional underground messenger cable installation required support systems, which were prone to bending over time, leading to non-conformance or structural failure. With analysis by electrical and structural team members, a new design was implemented. New client site standards were adopted to eliminate this ongoing issue.

Calabrian SO2Clean™ Facility:

BESTECH was selected by Calabrian Corporation to provide engineering services for the SO2Clean™ production facility in Timmins, Ontario. This facility was created to supply mining, paper, and water treatment operations in the region. BESTECH team members simulated the entire plant, allowing for commissioning and testing to take place concurrently. The client was also able to train employees in the simulated environment. Programming for the entire plant was also led by BESTECH team members and BESTECH manufactured all of the custom panels required.
