The technology group Wärtsilä will supply an 18 MW extension to the ability producing facility and improve the electrical and automation system of the present energy plant on the Sabodala-Massawa gold mine complex in Senegal, West Africa.
เกจวัดแก๊สหุงต้ม is owned by Endeavour Mining, a leading world gold producer. The upgrading and extension challenge will enable for the whole integration of all the site’s energy generating capability, whereas making certain the provision of the needed electric energy to maintain and expand 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 challenge shall be delivered under an entire engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.
Sabodala-Massawa mine is the most important producing gold mine in Senegal and is located in the jap a part of the nation within the Kedougou area. Endeavour’s planned mine enlargement will transform Sabodala-Massawa into a top-tier gold asset with incremental production.
“Wärtsilä has a depth of expertise in delivering power options for mining operations all over the world. Not being related to the grid implies that the captive plant needs to 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 robust status for high effectivity and reliability beneath even probably the most tough ambient circumstances, eliminating revenue losses from power shortages,” stated Marc Thiriet, Energy Business Director, Africa West, Wärtsilä.
The three Wärtsilä 32 engines to be put in are 20 per cent more gas environment friendly than the plant’s existing engines. Their gasoline effectivity minimises the environmental impact by lowering 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 vitality 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 venture is anticipated to be completed and commissioned before the tip of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s leading provider of power generating tools, and already has 543 MW of put in capacity in altogether 20 energy vegetation in the country. 458 MW of this capability is under Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
