Endress+Hauser Canada donated $1.4 million to the new SAIT Polytechnic Trades and Technology Complex in Calgary, Alberta. The donation will fund the Endress+Hauser Process Lab, which will provide state-of-the-art training to students attending the SAIT”s MacPhail School of Energy.

The Endress+Hauser Process Lab is located in the Johnson-Cobbe Energy Centre, which is the West Wing of the new complex. According to a press announcement, it will be outfitted with the latest flow and interface measurement technologies, in addition to guided-wave radar instruments, and nuclear density profiling systems. The company will also provide guest lecturers and various training materials that explain the different measurement technologies.

“Endress+Hauser has a long history of supporting the development and training of the industrial automation workforce,” said Richard Lewandowski, president of Endress+Hauser Canada, in a prepared statement. “Because of this culture, getting involved with SAIT was natural. By providing students with the best measurement equipment and training materials, we believe that we are in turn investing in our future employees.”

Endress+Hauser has begun installation, commissioning and start-up of all instrumentation and systems in the lab. The company expects the facility, which is over 1,800 square-feet, to be completed and operational by mid-August 2012.
