GE’s Distributed Power signs new Waukesha Distributor in Canada

Continuing to expand its global Waukesha sales and services network to meet the growing demand for power at or near the point of use, GE’s Distributed Power business has signed an agreement with Hoerbiger (Canada) Ltd. to be an authorized distributor for GE’s Waukesha gas engine products in Canada.


Established in 1972, Hoerbiger (Canada) Ltd. has strong experience as a leading energy services company supporting the industrial sector in eastern Canada and the oil and gas industry in western Canada.

Hoerbiger currently supports hundreds of Waukesha engine operations in Canada through its strong service network that includes dozens of highly skilled engine technicians. With millions of dollars in genuine product and parts inventory, Hoerbiger is well-positioned to partner with Waukesha end users active in any power application. As an authorized distributor for sales and service in Canada, Hoerbiger can improve a Waukesha end user’s operations with a complete life cycle of engine coverage, including installation and startup, upgrades and overhauls with genuine parts and factory warranties.

At Hoerbiger’s Spruce Grove facility in Alberta, the company provides full-load testing to Waukesha engines. The facility has the current capability of running continuous, 4,000 horsepower (hp) dynamometer testing, but has the natural gas capacity to increase this to 10,000 hp continuously. This helps ensure a seamless on-site startup and can reduce installation and commissioning time by half.

Hoerbiger(Canada) also is investing in local inventory for common parts and is supported through a central inventory hub located at Spruce Grove.
