Aker Solutions opens new manufacturing facility in Pickering, Ontario Canada
Aker Solutions has opened its new 90 000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Pickering, Ontario, Canada. The new facility will allow Aker Solutions to capitalize on market demand for fabrication of its proprietary equipment for acid plants, by more than doubling its production capacity.
The original fabrication facility was established in Toronto in 1961, and has been designing and fabricating custom shell and tube heat exchangers and process equipment for the sulphuric acid, nitric acid, petroleum and chemical industries for nearly 50 years.
Gary Mandel, executive vice president of Process & Construction, Aker Solutions, said: “As a result of our success as an industry leader in these niche sectors, we have re-located to this much larger facility, and implemented key equipment upgrades and manufacturing improvements to enable us to continue to meet market demand for our high quality, custom fabrication capability.”
This new facility includes a 17 400 square-foot office, 17 000 square foot machine shop, and two 27 300 square foot assembly bays. The machine shop and assembly bays are equipped with a total of seven cranes, each with a span of 70 feet. Single lift capacity in one of the assembly bays is 100 tonnes. The facility provides higher and heavier lift capacity for larger equipment.
Integrating the Aker Solutions’ comprehensive Health, Safety and Environmental principles, the new facility provides improved workflow and ergonomics by eliminating congestion in work areas, more efficient energy usage, and built-in waste management systems.
