As customers continue efforts to improve resilience during a time of unpredictable commodity prices, they require maintenance contractors who understand this cycle and can provide evidence-based solutions to improve run time at their facilities, thereby improving efficiency and throughput.
Our composite crews of IRATA or SPRAT Certified tradespeople including electricians, insulators and pipefitters will reduce the reliance on expensive and bulky scaffolding. Our rope access personnel can quickly start and finish short-term maintenance projects, while reducing the total spend on a specific scope of work by not requiring scaffold be set up or taken down, and have maintenance completed in an expedient manner, reducing total downtime.
Integrated inspection and maintenance crews with rope access capabilities combine to be one of the most significant drivers of value resulting in reduced schedule, overhead and total cost. We are a fully embedded contractor delivering both inspection and trades from ropes and have agreements with local trade organizations that allows us to deploy one crew with multiple trades who can support each other and deliver maximum efficiency.
Acuren has a deep pool of IRATA or SPRAT Certified tradespeople that can be dispatched for emergency work, while maintaining a base crew available on a full-time basis.

- Heavy lifting and hoisting
Painting & Coating
- Protective coating (internal and external surfaces of tanks, vessels, and structural steel)
- Bristle blasting, sand blasting and vacuum blasting
- Lead paint abatement
- TSA – Thermal Spray Aluminium
Installation, Removal & Replacement

Richardson Oilseed is one of Canada’s oldest and largest fully-integrated crushing, refining, processing and packaging operations. In the absence of timely manufacturer support for a critical equipment issue, the full time onsite Acuren Condition Monitoring Specialist was able to diagnose and provide a detailed correction path on a defective trunion bearing.
During a planned outage ultrasonic testing and visual inspection revealed that a significant portion of the pump box floor either needed to be repaired, or cut out and replaced.
