Energy centre (stage 2) for a Mining and Processing Plant
In 2018, MKC Group of Companies put into operation a 4 MW energy centre (stage 2 based on MWM TCG 2020 V20 gas genset). This facility made history of the decentralized power supply development while transferring the energy centre (stage 1) from one site to another in the process of the project implementation. The energy centre transfer procedure took 8 days only.
The distance between the sites was 200 meters. The decision to transfer the facility was made by the Customer – management of the Uzhuralzoloto Group of Companies, JSC, offering a more comfortable and even (laid with road plates) place for the energy object. Subsequently, at the new site, the generating capacity of the energy centre was increased up to 8 MW. MWM TCG 2020 gas genset engines were used as the main equipment.
The possibility to rapidly move the power plant from one site to another is one of the main advantages of the modular mini-MPP construction technology, when the power object is built not in a separate fixed-site building, but in modular units. Using this technology, the mini-MPP is assembled as a constructor set as quickly as it is dismantled and, if needed, moved to another site or even transported to another city and region.
Other advantages of modular mini-MPP also include rapid assembly of the object (in 14 days), possibility of out-door installation, capacity increase simplicity (it is possible to carry out step-by-step expansion of generated capacities), as well as architectural aesthetics of the object – modular mini-MPP have modern and technological performance.
