The know-how group Wärtsilä will supply an 18 MW extension to the facility generating facility and improve the electrical and automation system of the prevailing power plant on the Sabodala-Massawa gold mine complex in Senegal, West Africa.
The mine is owned by Endeavour Mining, a quantity one global gold producer. เกจวัดแรงดันเครื่องกรองน้ำ and extension project will permit for the whole integration of all of the site’s power generating capacity, while ensuring the supply of the wanted electric power to maintain and increase the mine’s production schedules
he order with Wärtsilä was positioned by Sabodala Gold Operations and it has been booked in Wärtsilä’s order intake in Q3 2022. The project will be delivered under an entire engineering, procurement and development (EPC) contract.
Sabodala-Massawa mine is the biggest producing gold mine in Senegal and is positioned within the jap a half of the country within the Kedougou region. Endeavour’s planned mine enlargement will remodel Sabodala-Massawa into a top-tier gold asset with incremental manufacturing.
“Wärtsilä has a depth of expertise in delivering power solutions for mining operations all over the world. Not being connected to the grid signifies that the captive plant must be able to providing a reliable supply of electrical energy always, since no power equals no production. The Wärtsilä 32 engines chosen for this expansion project have established a powerful reputation for prime efficiency and reliability beneath even probably the most difficult ambient circumstances, eliminating income losses from energy shortages,” stated Marc Thiriet, Energy Business Director, Africa West, Wärtsilä.
The three Wärtsilä 32 engines to be installed are 20 per cent extra gasoline environment friendly than the plant’s current engines. Their gas efficiency minimises the environmental influence by reducing harmful CO2 emissions. In addition to their outstanding efficiency, they have the flexibility to help a clean transition to the combination of solar energy and energy storage into the system. The improve of the electrical and automation system will optimise the interconnection and control for the existing energy plant with the extension.
The venture is anticipated to be completed and commissioned earlier than the end of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s main provider of energy producing gear, and already has 543 MW of installed capacity in altogether 20 power plants in the country. 458 MW of this capability is beneath Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
