The expertise group Wärtsilä will provide an 18 MW extension to the facility generating facility and upgrade the electrical and automation system of the present energy plant on the Sabodala-Massawa gold mine complicated in Senegal, West Africa.
The mine is owned by Endeavour Mining, a leading world gold producer. The upgrading and extension challenge will permit for the complete integration of all the site’s energy producing capability, while guaranteeing the provision of the needed electrical power to take care of and broaden the mine’s manufacturing 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 venture might be delivered underneath a whole engineering, procurement and development (EPC) contract.
Sabodala-Massawa mine is the biggest producing gold mine in Senegal and is located within the jap a half of the nation within the Kedougou area. Endeavour’s planned mine growth will transform Sabodala-Massawa right into a top-tier gold asset with incremental manufacturing.
“Wärtsilä has เกจวัดแรงดันไอน้ำ of expertise in delivering power solutions for mining operations around the world. Not being related to the grid signifies that the captive plant needs to be capable of offering a reliable provide of electrical energy at all times, since no power equals no production. The Wärtsilä 32 engines chosen for this expansion venture have established a powerful reputation for high effectivity and reliability under even probably the most difficult ambient conditions, eliminating revenue losses from power shortages,” said Marc Thiriet, Energy Business Director, Africa West, Wärtsilä.
The three Wärtsilä 32 engines to be put in are 20 per cent extra gasoline environment friendly than the plant’s current engines. Their gas efficiency minimises the environmental impact by lowering harmful CO2 emissions. In addition to their excellent efficiency, they’ve the flexibleness to assist a clean transition to the integration of solar power and power 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 predicted to be accomplished and commissioned earlier than the top of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s main supplier of power producing gear, and already has 543 MW of installed capability in altogether 20 power vegetation within the country. 458 MW of this capacity is under Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
