Our lead product, an onsite, containerized Green Ammonia production system that is modular and scalable, will revolutionize clean energy through a patent-pending, first-of-its-kind technology invented in Canada. The system takes air, water and a sustainable electricity source to produce green anhydrous ammonia with no carbon emissions. Adoption will dramatically support global targets to reduce CO2 emissions.

What YOU will do:
As the electrician apprentice your responsibilities will be assigned by the master electrician, and they will include assisting with installations, troubleshooting, repairs as well as calibrations of electrical systems and equipment. Under the guidance of the Master Electrician and Electrical Engineer, you will connect power supply wires to machines and equipment and connect cables and wires between machines and equipment, following manuals, blueprints, schematic diagrams, using hand tools and test equipment. Assist with updating work logs, client accounts, ordering replacement parts and equipment as required. Read, interpret and apply all applicable codes and regulations as needed. Safety is a priority for everything we do, so you will participate in the safety engineering process in every step of the way. Part of your daily responsibilities will be ensuring electrical systems/equipment and your work area are kept clean. You will perform related electrical duties as required as there will be lots to do, so this summary is only an idea of what the role holds for you. Does this sound exciting? Keep reading below.
Who YOU are:
You’ve seen our values, and they resonate with you.

You have successfully completed at least two levels of schooling required for an Industrial Electrician Certification.

You take pride in having responsibility for the quality and accuracy of the work you undertake, being proactive in finding solutions to problems and identifying areas for improving the business. Your willingness to learn and land a hand are part of who you are. You keep high regard for attention to detail with strong analytical, troubleshooting and problem-solving skills.
