Enterprise Group, Inc, a consolidator of energy services (including specialized equipment rental to the energy/resource sector), announces that its subsidiary, Artic Therm International Ltd., (”Artic Therm”) was awarded a project to assist in the protective coating application process of a significant section of the Coastal Gas Link Pipeline connecting N.E. British Columbia to the LNG Canada facility in Kitimat, BC.
Artic Therm’s self-contained, portable truck heating units are capable of producing up to 3.3 million BTU of flameless heat and up to 15,000 CFM of clean, breathable air flow. Multiple ATI 2500 units will be heating several hundred metre sections of pipeline at a time, to achieve specific pipe temperatures. This heating effort is to assist in the application of a specialized protective coating. Extreme winter conditions, snow, and ice, make this coating process difficult in the remote Canadian landscape. The project is expected to take place over the remainder of the extreme winter season.
Artic Therm’s fleet and its seasoned crews have been heating, drying, and thermally expanding steel pipelines since 1999.
