Trinity Powers a New Ice Plant at Canada’s Largest Commercial Fishing Harbour

A delay of even a few hours can cost a business money — a situation we’ve covered before — but when waiting on permanent power equipment or utility power, the projected delays can extend into months.

That’s where Trinity Power comes in. Our extensive fleet of temporary power equipment is sure to contain what you need, and our team of experts can work with you and the utility to help you go live faster.

If you’re wondering what that process might look like, this recent project is a perfect example.

As Canada’s largest commercial fishing harbour, our client runs a growing commercial operation. In order to keep up with the demands of a successful business, the harbour was conducting an important upgrade – building a new ice plant. The ice plant produces the ice that commercial fishers need to keep their catches cold, and is a vital link in the commercial fishing supply chain.

There was only one problem: the plant was lacking the permanent transformer and other infrastructure it requires for power — a situation that could cause a delay of several months in getting operations up.

Needing a temporary power solution to be able to stick with their timeline, the harbour contacted Trinity Power because they knew we could be trusted to provide the best solution.

And we did.

While our client originally requested a 1500kVA 12.5kV – 600V substation, BC Hydro specifications meant that this requirement was altered to a 2000kVA 25kV – 600V substation. Luckily, Trinity’s extensive inventory made this an easy switch.

Not only did we provide the substation, we also arranged for its delivery using a crane truck, as well as providing ongoing support to the project’s engineers, answering their questions, and providing detailed installation and equipment information to ensure a smooth and speedy set-up.

Thanks to the Trinity team’s flexible equipment options and high touch, high care service approach, the harbour was able to get their ice plant up and running quickly. With our help, they were able to avoid months of delay, and provide the ice their commercial fishers need to keep their catches fresh.
