Specialized electrical work for heavy industry
Grimard takes part in major industrial electricity and telecommunications projects. We are especially involved in large-scale electricity projects for aluminum smelters and mines, as well as pulp and paper plants. Our expertise is focused on instrumentation and control, electrical services, pre-operation verification (POV) and commissioning. We provide the same services for activities that are not regulated by the construction industry. This enables us to meet the specific requests of our industrial clients for maintenance and upgrade services, employee leasing and specialized equipment leasing.
The expertise of our highly competent and experienced professionals is put to work for our clients and partners. Engineers, technicians, project officers, foremen and electricians work toward the successful completion of the most complex projects, with their main goal being our clients’ satisfaction.Our expertise is recognized by the largest clients working on most of Quebec’s industrial worksites. Our range of activities demonstrates the active role we play in developing various industries and is a token of Grimard’s reputation as a reliable contractor.
Grimard offers specialized expertise to meet aluminum smelter’s high power demands. Be it for an electrical installation, maintenance or other project, our teams continue to stand out for their excellent work, efficiency and compliance with safety standards. Over the years, we’ve developed unparalleled know-how in aluminum welding, mainly for bus work used to transport electricity.
Thanks to our professional management team and qualified welder-electricians, we have successfully completed complex, large-scale work for many aluminum smelters and hydroelectric stations.
Grimard is certified by the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) for Standards CSA W47.1-03 (steel) and CSA W47.2 (aluminum).
Over the years, Grimard has completed large-scale electrical installation work in mines located in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada. Mining facilities are generally in remote locations, so we have to mobilize key personnel while also including local workers. Grimard has taken part in many major projects calling for this type of staff planning and transportation logistics.
PULP AND PAPER
There are a great many pulp and paper plants in Quebec and Canada and they require a great deal of maintenance and updating. As a result of new forms of technology, these plants must integrate systems combining instrumentation and process control in order to optimize their production. Grimard has participated in many electric installations projects in these plants, enabling them to maintain a level of expertise that meets the industry’s requirements.
PRE-OPERATIONAL VERIFICATION (POV) AND COMMISSIONING
These two critical steps ensure that the various components and systems are operational, efficient and safe. For all the large-scale industrial works we’ve taken part in, the POV and commissioning were done in accordance with rigorous standards in order to deliver high-quality projects that meet the industry’s highest norms. We offer impeccable quality in all the work we do: the reputation of our company has been built on it for the last 75 years.
Grimard offers industrial maintenance services in the electrical, control-instrumentation and telecommunications fields. We offer these services for activities that are not regulated the construction industry. We are particularly involved in aluminum smelters, mines and large industrial complexes. Our expertise is focused on instrumentation and controls, electrical services and scheduled maintenance (shutdowns). This enables us to meet the specific requests of our industrial clients for maintenance and upgrade services, employee leasing and specialized equipment leasing.
