In the Market

It’s not hard to see how clean water and land/natural resource management share a common thread with the ability to produce superior food. But is that enough? Consumers have come to expect healthy and great tasting produce over the years, and now demand dependability, efficiency, and a strong resiliency story. Wenck works collaboratively with our clients to do just that – implementing strategic solutions to responsibly manage resources and keep waste to a minimum, all while simultaneously helping organizations exceed their financial expectations. With over three decades of innovation and our cream of the crop team of agribusiness veterans, Wenck is an industry leader in the field – offering in-house environmental permitting, design engineering, and construction management to suit any need. 

Project Spotlight

Canola Oil Facility

Wenck acted as Lead Engineer for all engineering design services for a $180 million Canola Oil Processing Facility. As Lead Engineer, Wenck completed engineering design services which included mechanical, electrical, process piping, site layout, and process controls design. Wenck also managed the client-selected subcontractors for civil and structural/architectural design services.

To complete air permitting, Wenck used air dispersion modeling and utilized 3D CADWorx as the primary engineering design tool. The project consisted of design documents, drawings and isometrics, piping, valves, instruments, site development and design, and P&ID’s. The project services totaled over 39,000 hours.

Our project team was a diverse one – organized by Wenck in coordination with the client – and consisted of a number of engineering firms from both the United States and Canada. The approach consisted of management-integration of design with construction. This provided the client with a cost-effective and successful construction effort.
