Greenfield Mining Project
A Copper Mine was looking at power generation alternatives between a grid tied vs an off-grid power solution.
A pre-feasibility study was completed to ascertain if a solar, battery and diesel hybrid solution would be cost effect at a greenfield mine site.
A solar, battery and diesel power solution was considered the most reliable and cost effective for the copper mine project.
~30% cost saving by implementing a hybrid off-grid power solution.
CO2 emissions were reduced by 12,600 tpa.
