Handing Specialty recently completed a number of significant projects with INNIO in Welland, Ont. at its Brilliant Factory facility.

The 500,000-sq.-ft. project that began as a greenfield development with GE Power has been underway since August 2018 with INNIO. The Austrian supplier of gas-driven power generation completed the acquisition of GE’s Distributed Power business the beginning of 2019 and is making the large Waukesha gas engines there. The plant will eventually employ 200 people.

Waukesha engines are designed to run under high stress conditions with the flexibility to use multiple fuels with rich- and lean-burn reciprocating designs for isolated, mission-critical, and demanding applications.
