Fueling Innovation

As the world’s appetite for affordable energy supplies continues to grow, we’re proud to report that some of the innovative technologies we’ve developed are helping to meet that demand safely and more efficiently than ever before. Each year, we invest millions to improve the safety and efficiency of our operations and minimize environmental impacts.

Leading by example

Our pipelines, oil and gas facilities and power plants are some of the most technologically advanced in the industry. And yet we’re always striving to improve.

That’s why TransCanada is committed to developing and testing new techniques and technologies. From “smart-pigs” using Electromagnetic Acoustic Transducer (EMAT) technology to advanced aerial surveillance, we’re constantly looking for new ways to ensure our operations are as safe, efficient and environmentally responsible as possible.
