Have Questions? Let's Discuss​ Alternative Energy Options Analysis – Mining Operations

Evaluation of options for a mine to replace base case diesel power with alternatives including solar, wind, biomass, fuel cells, and LNG along with comprehensive energy use modeling for all mine operations

The Challenge

Integrated Sustainability was tasked with identifying technically and economically viable options with regards to power generation for a new mine.

Deliverables included:

  • Demonstration of potential viability for one or two options, then determine a single option to take to feasibility
  • Risk analysis, fatal flaws and major risk identification
  • Detailed financial models

The Result

Integrated Sustainability investigated the best potential options for alternative power generation, including modular high and medium speed bi-fuel generators capable of using LNG, hydrogen fuel cells, wind turbines, and solar power.
