Image from Moose JawDelivering turnkey solutions to our customers is what we do best, thanks to our expertise and a wide range of product offerings. One of our latest projects takes us back to 15 Wing, a Canadian Forces Base (CFB) in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.

Since 1998, we’ve had the privilege of operating and maintaining the base, and this year we're expanding our support by installing a complete electrical distribution system upgrade.

Starting in March, our team will be completing this work, on the heels of a similar project at CFB Cold Lake in Alberta, successfully completed in 2017. Because of past jobs like this, our deep expertise in electricity distribution and our familiarity with the base, we’re able to upgrade the electrical infrastructure at a faster rate and much lower cost.

“It's truly a great privilege to expand our support for the base," said Douglas Beaton, Director of Business Development, International Operations for ATCO Structures and Logistics. "By leveraging our cross-functional teams across our different business lines, we're able to serve the Canadian Armed Forces a complete cost-effective solution."

A Job 60 Years in the Making

Built in the 1950's, CFB Moose Jaw has seen many changes over the decades, and as such some of the electrical infrastructure has been damaged or abandoned.

Today, more than 500 military and civilian personnel work at the many elite training facilities on the base, including the NATO Flying Training in Canada (NFTC), the Royal Canadian Air Force aircrew training site and the Snowbirds, Canada's only military aerobatic squad. It’s imperative we supply safe and reliable energy that enables them to do their job.

Construction starts in March 2018, with the worked completed in October 2018.
