Western Canada, which includes major population centers like Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton, has always played a big role in the global energy industry. The region is one of the world’s largest exporters of energy resources and contains 13% of the world’s oil reserves, and 8% of the uranium reserves. However, in recent years, the rush to mine and drill almost every corner of the region has been off the charts. There are even 12 working oil wells within Calgary’s (population 1,200,000) city limits!
At Firwin, we have been making a big effort to expand our business into western Canada. Thanks to our amazing sales staff and quality insulation jackets, heat shields, and insulation covers, our expansion has been going very well. In fact, we are in the middle of delivering a large order of insulation covers to a massive oil processing plant in the heart of Western Canada. The 3000 insulation covers are being used to cover some very sensitive and crucial industrial valves at the plant. Due to the region’s often extreme and unpredictable weather, keeping flanges, flow meters, and other instrumentation properly covered is of the utmost importance. Monitoring and maintaining correct line temperatures, raises the level of worker and equipment safety and productivity. One of the best ways to accomplish this daunting task is by using proper insulation covers.
All Firwin insulation covers and blankets are manufactured in ISO 9001:2008 certified facilities and provide excellent heat retention and protection from environmental conditions such as heat, cold, and chemicals. On top of all of these benefits, our blankets allow for quick and efficient removal and re-installation so downtime is limited and your valves and flanges stay protected longer.
At Firwin, we are excited about increasing our footprint in western Canada, and spreading our unique combination of safety, cost-efficiency, and unmatched service and quality.
