Wärtsilä energy plant upgrade for largest gold mine in Senegal

The expertise group Wärtsilä will provide an 18 MW extension to the facility generating facility and improve the electrical and automation system of the existing energy plant at the Sabodala-Massawa gold mine complex in Senegal, West Africa.
The mine is owned by Endeavour Mining, a leading international gold producer. The upgrading and extension challenge will enable for the complete integration of all of the site’s energy generating capacity, whereas guaranteeing the supply of the needed electrical energy to maintain and increase the mine’s manufacturing schedules
he order with Wärtsilä was placed by Sabodala Gold Operations and it has been booked in Wärtsilä’s order consumption in Q3 2022. เกจอาร์กอน might be delivered underneath a complete engineering, procurement and building (EPC) contract.
เครื่องมือที่ใช้วัดความดันคือ -Massawa mine is the most important producing gold mine in Senegal and is positioned within the jap part of the nation within the Kedougou region. Endeavour’s deliberate mine enlargement will remodel Sabodala-Massawa into a top-tier gold asset with incremental manufacturing.
“Wärtsilä has a depth of experience in delivering energy options for mining operations around the globe. Not being linked to the grid means that the captive plant has to be capable of offering a reliable supply of electrical energy at all times, since no power equals no manufacturing. The Wärtsilä 32 engines selected for this expansion venture have established a robust popularity for high effectivity and reliability under even the most troublesome ambient situations, 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 efficient than the plant’s current engines. Their gas effectivity minimises the environmental influence by lowering harmful CO2 emissions. In addition to their excellent efficiency, they’ve the flexibleness to assist a easy transition to the combination of solar energy and vitality storage into the system. The improve of the electrical and automation system will optimise the interconnection and control for the prevailing power plant with the extension.
The challenge is expected to be accomplished and commissioned earlier than the end of 2023.
Wärtsilä is Senegal’s main provider of energy generating gear, and already has 543 MW of installed capacity in altogether 20 energy crops within the country. 458 MW of this capacity is under Wärtsilä long-term service agreements.
