Hybrid power for your mine
We understand that acquiring an uninterruptible power source is a challenge for mines, however Aggreko’s solutions are superior, providing safe and stable energy particularly in areas where there is limited or no access to mains power or gas. We also understand the practical challenges of reducing your carbon emissions. That is why we will work with you and use our deep expertise to develop the right choice of solutions and services to give you the energy you require.
One-way the mining sector can improve efficiency and bottom lines massively is through the implementation of hybrid power. Hybrid power plants combine the advantages of renewable energy (such as wind, hydro power, solar) and battery storage with the reliability of thermal generators. Once installed, the costs of producing solar power are almost zero – and so are emissions. Our battery storage system gives you greater power quality and resilience. It also delivers savings to your project, by improving the overall plant efficiency and thereby reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
It’s fast to deliver and set up – and it’s all bundled into a single contract. The innovative plants deliver efficient, reliable power that result in a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Benefits of hybrid systems
- Introduce renewable power as viable
- Low cost of energy
- No fuel costs
- Low operation and maintenance costs
- Flexible service life
- Reduced emissions
- Supports Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) targets
Installation, maintenance and decommissioning
As supply needs change, we can scale up or down on both installed capacity and fuel contracts. Being the one power supplier, we provide the in-house engineering and technical support, which reduces administration and provides higher service levels, quicker responses, and problem resolution.
We can train local people to run the temporary or long-term power station until it is not needed anymore, and then proceed to decommission the equipment and remove it from your site. Our robust design practises ensure that the power plant will deliver power reliably. Any size power source is available as and when needed. This scalable solution matches capacity with the demand to ensure the plant runs at maximum efficiency giving you maximum return on the investment. We can supply diesel or gas generators, renewables, or a combination of all, to power the plant and equipment and we can adapt the fuel type at minimal cost giving you the lowest cost fuel option.
Our Flexible BOOM (Build-Own-Operate-Maintain) Service Model assists our power plant customers to use their capital more effectively within their own business. Under this contract model, we tailor your power plant to suit your site’s size, environment and compliance requirements. As a major investor in your project we also continue to operate and maintain the plant, so it continues to work cost-effectively and efficiently. We also take care of the site’s evolving power needs, including technological upgrades.
Partnering with Aggreko helps customers de-risk the threat of future innovation and frees up your working capital for profitable uses without increasing the project’s debt ratio. Our modular, scalable equipment also gives businesses the ability to leverage innovation at low risk and not be concerned about having the latest equipment. We can easily and efficiently scale our power plants up or down depending on an operations’ requirements. This means we can adapt quickly to provide more when you’re busy or less if things slow down.
We concentrate on providing efficient, flexible energy to your site for as long as you need us, allowing you to concentrate on your core business.
