Mali: JDA signed for solar hybrid plant for Syama
Australian gold miner Resolute Mining has signed a joint development agreement with South Africa’s Ignite Energy Projects for a 40MW solar hybrid power plant at the Syama gold mine. The plant, which will combine solar photovoltaic (PV), battery and heavy fuel oil (HFO) technologies, will be built and financed as an independent power producer (IPP). Resolute said it would be the world’s largest off-grid, fully integrated hybrid power plant for a stand-alone mining operation when it enters full operation by the end of 2020.
