The know-how group Wärtsilä will provide an 18 MW extension to the facility generating facility and upgrade the electrical and automation system of the present power plant on the Sabodala-Massawa gold mine complex in Senegal, West Africa.
The mine is owned by Endeavour Mining, a quantity one world gold producer. The upgrading and extension project will permit for the entire integration of all of the site’s power generating capability, while making certain the availability of the wanted electric power to maintain and broaden the mine’s manufacturing schedules
he order with Wärtsilä was placed by Sabodala Gold Operations and it has been booked in Wärtsilä’s order consumption in Q3 2022. The venture will be delivered under a whole engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.
เกจ์วัดแก๊สหุงต้ม -Massawa mine is the most important producing gold mine in Senegal and is located within the eastern part of the nation within the Kedougou region. Endeavour’s deliberate mine enlargement will transform Sabodala-Massawa into a top-tier gold asset with incremental production.
“Wärtsilä has a depth of expertise in delivering power solutions for mining operations around the world. Not being connected to the grid implies that the captive plant has to be capable of providing a dependable provide of electricity always, since no power equals no manufacturing. The Wärtsilä 32 engines chosen for this enlargement project have established a strong reputation for high efficiency and reliability underneath even essentially the most tough ambient situations, eliminating revenue losses from power shortages,” mentioned Marc Thiriet, Energy Business Director, Africa West, Wärtsilä.
The three Wärtsilä 32 engines to be installed are 20 per cent more gas environment friendly than the plant’s present engines. Their gasoline efficiency minimises the environmental impact by decreasing harmful CO2 emissions. In addition to their excellent efficiency, they’ve the flexibleness to help a clean transition to the integration of solar energy and power storage into the system. The upgrade of the electrical and automation system will optimise the interconnection and control for the existing power plant with the extension.
The challenge is anticipated to be accomplished and commissioned before the end of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s main supplier of power generating tools, and already has 543 MW of put in capacity in altogether 20 power crops within the nation. 458 MW of this capability is under Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
