Wärtsilä energy plant upgrade for largest gold mine in Senegal

The technology group Wärtsilä will supply an 18 MW extension to the ability producing facility and improve 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 number one world gold producer. The upgrading and extension project will permit for the complete integration of all of the site’s energy producing capacity, while guaranteeing the availability of the wanted electric power to maintain and expand the mine’s production schedules
he order with Wärtsilä was positioned by Sabodala Gold Operations and it has been booked in Wärtsilä’s order consumption in Q3 2022. The project will be delivered underneath a whole engineering, procurement and building (EPC) contract.
Sabodala-Massawa mine is the most important producing gold mine in Senegal and is situated in the japanese a half of the nation within the Kedougou area. Endeavour’s deliberate mine expansion will remodel Sabodala-Massawa into a top-tier gold asset with incremental manufacturing.
“Wärtsilä has จำหน่ายเกจวัดแรงดัน of expertise in delivering energy options for mining operations around the world. Not being connected to the grid means that the captive plant has to be able to providing a reliable supply of electrical energy always, since no energy equals no production. The Wärtsilä 32 engines chosen for this expansion venture have established a strong popularity for prime efficiency and reliability under even essentially 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 put in are 20 per cent more gasoline environment friendly than the plant’s existing engines. Their fuel effectivity minimises the environmental impression by reducing harmful CO2 emissions. In addition to their excellent performance, they have the flexibleness to assist a easy 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 present power plant with the extension.
The project is predicted to be accomplished and commissioned earlier than the top of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s leading provider of power generating equipment, and already has 543 MW of installed capability in altogether 20 power crops within the nation. 458 MW of this capacity is beneath Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
