Wärtsilä energy plant improve for largest gold mine in Senegal

The expertise group Wärtsilä will provide an 18 MW extension to the power generating facility and improve the electrical and automation system of the existing energy plant on the Sabodala-Massawa gold mine advanced in Senegal, West Africa.
The mine is owned by Endeavour Mining, a leading international gold producer. The upgrading and extension project will enable for the entire integration of all of the site’s power generating capacity, while ensuring the provision of the wanted electric energy to take care of and increase the mine’s manufacturing 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 challenge might be delivered beneath a whole engineering, procurement and development (EPC) contract.
เกจวัดแรงดันสูง -Massawa mine is the most important producing gold mine in Senegal and is situated within the eastern part of the nation within the Kedougou region. Endeavour’s planned mine expansion will transform Sabodala-Massawa into a top-tier gold asset with incremental manufacturing.
“Wärtsilä has a depth of expertise in delivering power solutions for mining operations around the globe. Not being connected to the grid implies that the captive plant must be capable of providing a reliable supply of electricity at all times, since no power equals no production. The Wärtsilä 32 engines selected for this enlargement venture have established a strong status for prime effectivity and reliability under even the most troublesome ambient conditions, eliminating income losses from power shortages,” said Marc Thiriet, Energy Business Director, Africa West, Wärtsilä.
The three Wärtsilä 32 engines to be installed are 20 per cent more fuel environment friendly than the plant’s present engines. Their gas effectivity minimises the environmental impression by decreasing dangerous CO2 emissions. In addition to their outstanding performance, they’ve the pliability to help a easy 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 prevailing energy plant with the extension.
The project is predicted to be accomplished and commissioned earlier than the tip of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s leading supplier of power generating gear, and already has 543 MW of installed capability in altogether 20 energy crops in the country. 458 MW of this capability is beneath Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
