This project delivers clean renewable energy electricity to the Essakane Gold Mine, reducing their fuel consumptions, because of the isolated location of the gold mine, reliable and sustainable around-theclock energy is vital.
The Essakane gold mine is located in the far north of the country, and isn’t connected to the national grid. Before the introduction of the Solar PV plant the mine was dependent on a fleet of diesel generators for its electricity supply.
