Kestrel develops innovative solutions for the utility industry focusing on generator control and compliance with the regulatory requirements imposed by NERC, Regional Reliability Organizations and Independent System Operators.
Changing regulatory requirements and technical challenges require that Utility Staff are constantly updating their skills and monitoring the new requirements and available solutions. Our goal is to help our Clients help themselves by developing the in-house competencies they need to handle the emerging requirements. Kestrel provides a full complement of consulting and training services as well as hardware products and software applications designed specifically to address Regulatory Compliance and generator control. We constantly monitor emerging trends and adapt our product and service offerings accordingly.
|In Memory of Elmer Bourque|
We remember Elmer Bourque who passed December 28th 2017. Elmer was a mentor, colleague, friend and employee over a span of 25 years of our involvement with him. He is remembered for his good nature, knowledge, friendship, and variety of intriguing hobbies. He was a tireless worker on power system stability and had a keen interest in frequency stability, not just of power systems but pipe organs! Kestrel is honoured to have been among his circle of friends for these years. His contributions to the North American power system are a fitting and enduring legacy.
In Memory of Roger Berube
On July 16, 2010, we at Kestrel unexpectedly lost a close friend and colleague, Roger Berube. Roger was a Kestrel co-founder and senior engineer and to those who worked with him, he was a great engineer, teacher, friend and confidant. As a professional, Roger was driven, charitable with his knowledge, a pleasure to work with, and an expert in his field.
More importantly, to his family, he was a loving husband, caring son and devoted father. Roger was an accomplished and dedicated cyclist, hockey player, canoeist and sports fan. He was always generous with his time as a karate instructor, scout leader and childrens' sports coach.
His integrity, energy, good humour, sense of adventure and caring spirit will be sorely missed.
Roger was devoted to many causes, but focused on raising money for cancer research. Donations can be made in the name of Gerald Roger Berube to the
Princess Margaret Hospital (Toronto), for whom he raised funds for the past three years through charity rides.
