Hybrid energy solutions are leading innovation in the mining industry, with teams across the globe applying complex solutions to various other sectors.
Power supply might be what energy companies are known for, yet in 2021 the world’s leading mobile power provider Aggreko also wants to be recognised as an investor in life-of-mine projects.
Deloitte’s top 10 trends for 2021 have highlighted the mining sector’s commitment to continual improvement and in laying a foundation for tomorrow. Decarbonisation and zero harm are two of this year’s discussion points in the annual Tracking the Trends report.
Aggreko, the world’s leader in mobile, modular power, has committed to net zero emissions by 2050 and is partnering with the world’s biggest miners to use greener energy like solar, wind and natural gas.
Aggreko plans to invest up to $600 million a year to support the mining sector’s energy transition, responding to the industry’s requests for energy alternatives to fossil diesel.
Aggreko has partnered with Gold Fields to provide supplementary diesel power generation at the Granny Smith mine in Western Australia.
Gold Fields has partnered with energy services company Aggreko to install a renewable energy microgrid at the Granny Smith gold mine in Western Australia.
Resolute is eyeing solar power delivery at the Syama gold mine in south Mali, Africa by the third quarter of 2020 after signing a 16-year contract with Aggreko.
Resolute Mining is set to partner with power generation provider Aggreko in developing a hybrid power station at its Syama gold mine in Mali, West Africa.
With temperatures above ground often exceeding 40 degrees Celsius in the warmer months, the health, safety and productivity of underground miners can all be jeopardised by hot climates.
Remote mines are now utilising scalable microgrids that can evolve with the lifecycle, improving flexibility and efficiency.
While the energy landscape seemed frozen in time for several decades from the 1950s until 2000, we have certainly come out of the ice age and are now headed, perhaps a little too quickly, to much warmer times.
Aggreko’s decision to implement a standalone power station at an isolated mine site paid off dividends for the client. The mine site was so remote that there had been no way to connect the facility to mains power or mains gas. To find out how Aggreko achieved it, download the company whitepaper below.
Aggreko, the world’s leading provider of temporary power, temperature control and energy services, is adding mobile and modular energy storage to its 10GW fleet of distributed energy assets.
South African miner Gold Fields has contracted Scottish power company Aggreko to create a massive solar power generation system to help power the Granny Smith gold mine near Laverton, Western Australia.
Rio Tinto’s Amrun bauxite project in far north Queensland has achieved a significant energy milestone, following the completion of upgrades to the project’s 20MW power station.
Aggreko is helping companies focus more on mining through a remote monitoring system that supports its power generation facilities at operations.
Temporary power generation company Aggreko has acquired US-based TuCo Industrial Products, a temporary heat and air conditioning equipment provider for the construction, industrial and commercial industries.
