Aggreko provides 20 MW to Las Bambas in Peru

first_imgAggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services, was recently commissioned by MMG Ltd to provide 20 MW of power to the Las Bambas mine located more than 4,000 m above sea level in the Peruvian region of Apurimac.Aggreko stated: “This collaboration is important as MMG Ltd is known locally for its significant investments and successful projects that have often lead to improvements for the local economy. For this particular project, Aggreko was required to provide power solutions at different phases within challenging time-frames helping the customer avoid any consequential penalties. Aggreko’s modular and flexible solutions, where power can be quickly and seamlessly increased or decreased according to site needs, allowed the customer to concentrate on other mining related applications as the project transitioned from phase to phase.”The first phase of the project included the use of electric shovels, which need significant power to operate. Due to construction delays with the transmission lines in this remote area, the customer sought the support from experienced power rental providers for this critical and highly specialised application. “Within Latin America, Aggreko is considered one of the only power rental companies capable of providing such a service and so it was a natural choice when it came to selecting the right partner.”Ana Amicarella, Managing Director of Aggreko’s Americas Power Projects division, said: “Aggreko’s power solutions are specifically designed to support all aspects of mining operations. This electric shovel application is just one example of our flexible solutions.” The first stage, which was delivered at the end of 2014, included 8.4 MW to run several electric shovels for mineral extraction. In the second stage, Aggreko delivered an additional 11.6 MW of power for overall site operations.In addition to the first two phases of the project, Aggreko is responsible for commissioning, storing and filtering the fuel supply, allowing for 24-hour continuous operations of the mine. Following the project’s completion, Aggreko’s team will oversee all decommissioning needs. Amicarella added, “The customer selected Aggreko because of our proven track record, fast-tracked installation capabilities of multi-megawatt projects, and for our ability to offer temporary flexible and reliable power solutions to the mining industry. As a global company with over 50 years experience, our customers trust that with Aggreko taking care of their power needs, they are free to focus on the task at hand.”last_img read more
