Wave9 Technology Inc. provides a combined hardware and software solution that enables conventional oil producers to improve production, reduce operating expenses, and mitigate environmental impact by automating daily site inspections using their purpose-built technology platform, coupled with AI. The company automatically informs lease operators or pumpers of issues in order to reduce site visits and allow management by exception. Unlike either traditional remote monitoring or newer video surveillance technologies which tend to create a lot of data that still needs to be analyzed by operation staff, Wave9 delivers a streamlined workflow and minimizes the impact on the existing inspection process.

Joanne Cunningham, Co-Founder / Director

Products and services include a monitoring system that provides oilfield maintenance staff with a workflow dashboard that prioritizes interventions and feeds the 'right info at the right time’ to the operator. The solution consists of a camera that provides visual access to the wellhead, sensors tracking key operating parameters, and analytics software that processes and filters this info, then alerts the operator to certain conditions. The combination of these features and abilities allows a significant reduction in human cost of operation as well as operational risks. The package is designed to use a solar panel and batteries instead of power to eliminate the need of an electrician and operational shut down during package installation.

Wendell Estate Honey (WEH) sells premium, raw, artisan honey sourced from a single honey farm. Established by John Wendell in the 1930's, Wendell Honey remains family-owned, but has evolved into a modern honey producer. Wendell Honey selects and breeds their own bee stock and intensively manages their hives to maintain the health of their bees for optimum honey production. Every drop of Wendell Estate Honey is harvested on Wendell Honey Farm, packaged fresh on the farm and allowed to naturally micro-crystallize in the jar. Nothing is added and nothing is removed from the natural prairie blossom honey. The result is a brilliant white honey with a fresh floral aroma, delicate flavour and incomparably smooth texture, packaged in beautiful top-quality jars. Because they don’t rely on any 3rd party packagers, WEH purity and authenticity is guaranteed by Wendell Estate; proven by independent laboratories. Their pure, unpasteurized, raw honey is in high demand in domestic and overseas retail markets. In 2018 Wendell Estate launched a new product line of organic honey, Wendell Estate Organic, sourced from a single-family farm in Northern Saskatchewan. Certifications Include Kosher, Halal and COR Organic (Procert). Wendell Estate Honey has recently been recognized in two prestigious international awards. Wendell Estate’s premium honey won the gold medal at the 2019 World Beekeeping Awards in the soft-set honey category. At the 2020 London International Honey Awards Wendell Estate’s conventional and organic product lines represented Canada by being the only North American honeys to be awarded Platinum.
