Enefen is an engineering consulting company that specializes in ensuring that all gas fired appliances meet the code requirements. Our engineers and inspectors have extensive experience in combustion engineering, fabrication, operation, commissioning, and standards. Through our efforts, we have influenced the development of industry standards in the Canadian upstream oil and gas industry.
What started as a small consulting business with two engineers grew to what we are today. We started as an energy efficiency consulting company servicing industrial gas-fired appliances, and saw the need for increased regulation and inspection to improve safety, reliability, fuel usage and emissions. We bring an integrated approach to approvals to also give our clients valuable feedback to reduce operation and maintenance costs and harmful emissions. Enefen has been instrumental in leading regulatory bodies forward to benefit the health, safety and welfare of workers and the public, and we continue to be involved in the development of gas codes and local regulations to make sure Canada stays at the leading edge of safety.
Through complete and thorough Assessments, Designs, and Field Approvals, our ultimate goal is to keep our communities safe. Our commitment to Quality is imperative and we do not take shortcuts when it comes to approval of gas-fired appliances.
