Too far away to power but not for us
Client: Aurelia Metals
Location: Nymagee, NSW, Australia
Powering a developing underground mining operation and the surrounding campsite that's too remote for main power to reach
Due to the isolated location of the mine site, the decision was made to install a standalone power station to supply the mine camp and operations. There was no facility to connect to mains power as the mine was so remote, and mains gas was off-limits too.

A creative answer to a unique challenge leading to a satisfied customer and a one of a kind Australian power station
Remoteness and inaccessibility were no match for the ingenuity of the Aggreko engineering and operations teams. The virtual LNG pipeline we installed has resulted in no loss of power for the mining operations, the mill or the workers encampment. A successful result thanks to hard work and creative problem solving.
