Since 2018, the project delivers clean renewable electricity to the Essakane Gold Mine and allows them to reduce their fuel consumption.
Because of the isolated location of the gold mine, reliable and sustainable around-the-clock 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 fully dependent on a fleet of diesel generators for its electricity supply. The installation of solar PV on the site allows the mine to reduce its fuel consumption by 6 million liters per year.
This project represents a major breakthrough in the
industry. The Solar PV solution will allow energy intensive industry to enter an era of more climate-friendly operations.
