We are honored to have senior IPE members serve as board members on the Pressure Equipment Sub Council.

Recently one of our members, Mr. Henry Hau, PE, was elected as Chairman of the PESC and this is very exciting news. His first meeting as Chair will be on March 14th, 2019.

In addition, we have some attachments to share regarding the last meeting of the PESC from October 2018. There is a lot of information here, including the meeting minutes from the PESC meetings and also the detailed incident report from the Fernie, BC arena accident from 2017. The Fernie accident happened at a time when many power engineering groups across Canada were busy discussing supervision of refrigeration plants and several of the attached documents are in reference to Fernie.
