Wärtsilä power plant upgrade for largest gold mine in Senegal

The expertise group Wärtsilä will supply an 18 MW extension to the power producing facility and upgrade the electrical and automation system of the prevailing power plant at the Sabodala-Massawa gold mine advanced in Senegal, West Africa.
The mine is owned by Endeavour Mining, a quantity one world gold producer. The upgrading and extension venture will permit for the entire integration of all the site’s power producing capability, while making certain the availability of the needed electrical energy 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. เกจวัดแรงดันลมคือ might be delivered under a whole engineering, procurement and building (EPC) contract.
Sabodala-Massawa mine is the biggest producing gold mine in Senegal and is positioned in the eastern part of the country in the Kedougou area. Endeavour’s deliberate mine expansion will remodel Sabodala-Massawa right into a top-tier gold asset with incremental manufacturing.
“Wärtsilä has a depth of expertise in delivering energy solutions for mining operations around the globe. Not being connected to the grid signifies that the captive plant needs to be able to offering a dependable supply of electricity always, since no energy equals no production. The Wärtsilä 32 engines selected for this enlargement project have established a strong popularity for top effectivity and reliability underneath even the most difficult ambient conditions, eliminating income losses from power shortages,” stated Marc Thiriet, Energy Business Director, Africa West, Wärtsilä.
The three Wärtsilä 32 engines to be installed are 20 per cent extra fuel environment friendly than the plant’s present engines. Their fuel effectivity minimises the environmental influence by reducing dangerous CO2 emissions. In addition to their excellent performance, they’ve the flexibleness to help a smooth transition to the combination of solar power and power storage into the system. The improve of the electrical and automation system will optimise the interconnection and management for the prevailing power plant with the extension.
The project is anticipated to be accomplished and commissioned before the tip of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s เกจวัดแรงดัน of energy generating equipment, and already has 543 MW of put in capability in altogether 20 energy plants within the nation. 458 MW of this capacity is under Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
