Mining Case Studies

Brownfield Mining Project

Brownfield Mining Project

The Challenge:
Small market cap Gold Mine was looking at cost saving alternatives at their off-grid mine site in Western Australia.

Case Study:
The Approach:

A pre-feasibility study was completed to ascertain if a solar diesel hybrid solution would be cost effective at the brownfield mine site.

The Solution:

A 1.8MW solar farm utilising the existing diesel generators to reduce the load on the diesel generators during the day.

The Result:

20% renewable power penetration and a cost saving of ~$500,000 p.a. on diesel. This doesn’t include savings that will be incurred due to reduced maintenance costs.  CO2 emissions were reduced by 2,268 tpa.
