Wärtsilä 40 MW power plant with a 10-year O&M agreement
When Geita Gold Mine required a highly reliable power generation solution to support its growing operations, Wärtsilä provided a turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solution and will take care of ongoing operation and maintenance (O&M). This integrated service ensures an uninterrupted off-grid power supply, eliminating revenue losses from power shortages.
Geita Gold Mine, situated in the Lake Victoria gold fields of north-western Tanzania, is a flagship mine of AngloGold Ashanti, the world’s third-largest gold mining company based on production. To support its growing operations as it transitioned from an open-pit setup to underground mining and avoid revenue losses from production interruption, the mine needed a reliable power source that would remain available around the clock.
