About C-FER East

In August 2014, C-FER opened a second office and testing facility in Edmonton, C-FER East, to complement their main facility.  The new building houses the Pipelines and Structures Division and includes a 3000 m2 high-bay test area and 1100 m2 of office area. This will provide space for some of C-FER’s key testing systems including:

  • Leak Detection Soil Box for investigating the behavior of liquid hydrocarbon leaks in soil and the ability to detect such leaks with various technologies
  • Deepwater Experimental Chamber for simulating water depths up to 3000 m;
  • Horizontal Testing System for tensile testing up to 72 MN
  • Cyclic Pressure Cell for applying cyclic internal pressure to tubulars to study remaining service and fatigue life
  • Tailings Consolidation Cell for studying the performance of novel techniques for consolidating mature fine tails

The new facility allows C-FER to:

  • Expand its engineering and technical staff
  • Efficiently operate large-scale testing systems
  • Build new testing systems to meet the ever changing needs of industry
