Please join the Tri-City Branch of Engineers and Geoscientists BC for a tour of the SEL Burnaby office and the ICON product line which is researched and developed at this site.

SEL invents, designs, and builds digital products and systems that protect power grids around the world. A 100% employee-owned company headquartered in Pullman, Washington, SEL is credited with the invention of the first microprocessor-based digital protective relay. The SEL ICON product’s primary research and development occurs in Burnaby, BC. Please join us for an overview of the ICON process and SEL Manufacturing.

There will be two parts in this tour. A presentation that provides an overview of the company and an introduction of the ICON product line. A walk-through will then be conducted to show different parts of the Burnaby office.
