The expertise group Wärtsilä will provide an 18 MW extension to the ability producing facility and upgrade the electrical and automation system of the present power plant on the Sabodala-Massawa gold mine advanced in Senegal, West Africa.
เกจวัดแรงดันแก๊ส is owned by Endeavour Mining, a leading international gold producer. The upgrading and extension challenge will allow for the entire integration of all the site’s energy generating capability, while ensuring the availability of the wanted electric power to keep up and broaden the mine’s production 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 will be delivered underneath a whole engineering, procurement and development (EPC) contract.
Sabodala-Massawa mine is the most important producing gold mine in Senegal and is located in the jap part of the nation within the Kedougou area. Endeavour’s planned mine expansion will transform Sabodala-Massawa right into a top-tier gold asset with incremental production.
“Wärtsilä has a depth of expertise in delivering energy solutions for mining operations all over the world. Not being related to the grid implies that the captive plant has to be capable of offering a reliable provide of electrical energy at all times, since no power equals no production. The Wärtsilä 32 engines selected for this enlargement venture have established a strong popularity for top effectivity and reliability under even probably the most tough ambient situations, eliminating income losses from energy shortages,” said Marc Thiriet, Energy Business Director, Africa West, Wärtsilä.
The three Wärtsilä 32 engines to be put in are 20 per cent more gasoline environment friendly than the plant’s current engines. Their fuel effectivity minimises the environmental influence by decreasing harmful CO2 emissions. In addition to their outstanding performance, they’ve the flexibleness to assist a smooth transition to the mixing of solar power and energy storage into the system. The upgrade of the electrical and automation system will optimise the interconnection and control for the existing energy plant with the extension.
The project is expected to be accomplished and commissioned before the tip of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s main provider of power generating equipment, and already has 543 MW of installed capability in altogether 20 power vegetation in the country. 458 MW of this capacity is underneath Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
