Fekola Mine Case Study

Fekola mine
17.3 MW / 15.4 MWh

On a continent richly endowed with natural minerals, mining is one of the biggest trades in Africa. Remote, energy-intensive and fuel-dependent mine owners are dealing with high energy costs as a result of mining operations for a myriad of practical applications and infrastructure development, plus meeting global commodity demand. The active adoption of clean energy solutions—utilising greater amounts of renewable energy to dramatically reduce energy costs and dependence on heavy fuel power generation—offers a largely untapped reliable energy alternative for the mining sector.
