Standby Diesel Genset Installation Project Begins

Gedawin Novo Controls is thrilled to announce the start of the Standby Diesel Genset Installation project.  This project will take the staff of Gedawin to three different hydropower stations in Ontario. We can’t wait!

We have started to plan, organize, schedule and meet with contractors so the project can be completed this summer.

In this picture, Chris Dallaire of Integrity Electric is shown signing the necessary paperwork for their involvement with the project.  Mr. Dallaire, the owner and operator of Integrity Electric is a very hard worker and provider of amazing results.  Gedawin is very happy to have him involved in this project.


Algonquin College’s Applied Research Day

Applied Research Day took place at Algonquin College on April 12th, 2017.  Alex Brasier, Josh White, Daniel Gendreau and Hayden Strachan showed off their work on a project they had been working on for Gedawin Novo Controls throughout the school year.  The project turned out great and we are really happy with the results.

The four students answered many questions at their booth from a public that was very interested in hydropower and its benefits.








At the end of the day, they presented Geoff Shewfelt, President of Gedawin Novo Controls, a framed photo of the above picture as thanks for sponsoring their project.
