    The Canadian Airports Electrical Association (CAEA) announces that the Campbell River Airport and the City of Campbell River will co-host the 2017 Canadian Airports National Electrical Workshop (CANEW).

    CANEW will be held from Sunday, September 24 – Friday, September 29, 2017 with the workshop being held at Painter’s Lodge Resort in Campbell River, BC. . Reservation information will be posted on the CANEW website.

    Past workshops have attracted delegates from across Canada, the United States, Europe, and China.The Department of National Defence Canada, Transport Canada, and Public Services and Procurement Canada also attend the workshop. The workshop serves as a forum to discuss issues of national scope, and allows airport technical people from different sites to interact and exchange information of mutual interest.

    Presentations will include subjects related to operating and maintaining airport building electrical systems, airfield electrical infrastructure, energy management, and renewable energy systems.

    Again this year, CANEW, along with partner companies, will be providing specific training sessions that will cover some of the specialized equipment and procedures that electrical staff encounter at airports in Canada. Transport Canada no longer has their training center, so the access to airport specific training has become difficult and expensive to obtain. CAEA will be providing some specific training sessions, with attendance documentation, to support and assist airport electrical staff to gain or refresh the specific and unique training they require. This year’s “Hands-On” training will cover “Fixture alignment and maintenance” and “Generator inspection and maintenance”. This in turn will help the airports with meeting training requirements and improving airport safety and operations.

    Opportunities are given during the plenary sessions for delegates to introduce topics for discussion by the group, provide solutions to everyday problems on the site, and seek assistance from the group with problems they may have encountered. Delegates will also have the chance to network with staff from other airports and with equipment suppliers that are valuable in dealing with future electrical issues at their airports.

    In conjunction with the workshop, CANEW will also feature a tradeshow where delegates can meet suppliers and equipment manufacturers to see the latest technologies available. For many delegates, this is an opportunity for them to establish contacts and make arrangements to purchase equipment. In addition, they can receive support from suppliers at a personal level resulting in cost savings to their airport’s operation. The tradeshow will be held at the City of Campbell River Community Hall on Wednesday September 27th, a shuttle service will be provided between the 2 locations.
