Wärtsilä power plant upgrade for largest gold mine in Senegal

The know-how 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 complex in Senegal, West Africa.
The mine is owned by Endeavour Mining, a leading global gold producer. The upgrading and extension venture will enable for the whole integration of all the site’s power generating capacity, whereas ensuring the supply of the wanted electric energy to take care of 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 might be delivered beneath an entire engineering, procurement and building (EPC) contract.
Sabodala-Massawa mine is the largest producing gold mine in Senegal and is located in the jap part of the country within the Kedougou region. Endeavour’s deliberate mine growth will rework Sabodala-Massawa right into a top-tier gold asset with incremental production.
“Wärtsilä has a depth of experience in delivering power options for mining operations around the globe. Not being linked to the grid means that the captive plant needs to be capable of providing a dependable supply of electrical energy always, since no energy equals no manufacturing. The Wärtsilä 32 engines chosen for this expansion venture have established a robust reputation for high efficiency and reliability beneath even essentially the most troublesome ambient circumstances, 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 extra gasoline efficient than the plant’s current engines. Their gas efficiency minimises the environmental impression by lowering dangerous CO2 emissions. In addition to their excellent efficiency, they’ve the flexibility to help a smooth transition to the combination of solar energy and energy 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.
pressure gauge ราคา is anticipated to be accomplished and commissioned before the tip of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s main supplier of energy producing equipment, and already has 543 MW of put in capacity in altogether 20 power crops in the nation. 458 MW of this capability is underneath Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
