Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) Engineering

When it comes to electrical and instrumentation (E&I) engineering service providers, there's often a gap. On one side, you have the EPC approach to service that covers everything from start to finish and is best suited to larger greenfield projects. On the other side, there's the consultant who brings expertise without the bench strength to service the project through its lifecycle.

True North Solutions' E&I team was built to fill that gap as a stand-alone service backed by multidisciplinary expertise and scalable labor.

True North Solutions electrical and instrumentation engineering team delivers complete E&I solutions for industrial and commercial projects.

The True North advantage

Scalable, multidisciplinary consult-to-construct E&I services

During the project conception phase, we can collaborate with our EAM team to identify opportunities for maximizing the lifecycle value of electrical assets. This facilitates data-driven capital planning and investment decisions, regulatory compliance, and improved maintenance.

Together with our colleagues, we offer a complete electrical and instrumentation solutions consisting of engineering, panel fabrication, installation, integration, testing, commissioning, and field services. We work as an integrated team across engineering disciplines, including OT Automation, to ensure monitoring and control elements and power systems are fully installed, integrated, and functioning as planned.

True North Solutions offers the advantage of scalable, multidisciplinary consult-to-construct E&I services.
