Hybrid power cuts mining energy costs

Juwi Renewable Energies has global experience developing renewable energy projects in many countries around the globe. This includes the world’s largest hybrid project for a copper and gold mine in Western Australia. In 2016, the company completed this off-grid solar hybrid project at the DeGrussa mine in the Australian Outback, 900 km north of Perth. The system is comprised of a 10,6 MW solar PV array on trackers that follow the sun with a 6 MW battery that is  fully integrated with an existing 23 MW diesel-fired power station.

The hybrid power plant now saves around 450 000 litres of diesel each month, which translates to around 20% saving in fuel consumption, and 12,000 tonnes reduction in carbon emissions per year. Power system stability is of paramount importance at mining operations. juwi’s team has substantial experience in power systems for mines and is able to provide reliable, cost effective and customised solutions for mines in Africa.
