Westgold turns to green power

Westgold turns to green power
Mining News Pro - Westgold Resources has commenced operation of four new hybrid power facilities to power its Western Australian operations.

The facilities are set to replace the exisiting diesel fired power station and will deliver a reduction of 15,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions and 10 million litres of annual diesel fuel consumption.

“Westgold continues to innovate to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and drive our operating costs down,” Westgold managing director Wayne Bramwell said.

“This new hybrid power facility at Tuckabianna incorporates renewable energy and is a great first step along this journey, with power generated from these facilities energising our mines and processing hubs for decades to come.”

The 17.9 megawatt facility is housed at Tuckabianna, 20km east of Cue, WA.

“The successful commissioning of Tuckabianna is a testament to the tireless work of Westgold’s project and operational teams, business partners at Pacific Energy and CEFA and construction crews who have delivered our first power station safely and on schedule,” Bramwell said.

Westgold will construct an additional three hybrid power facilities at its Bluebird, Fortnum and Big Bell operations. The three facilities will have a combine capacity of 82 megawatts and are expected to be operational by the third quarter of 2024.

The company recently updated its guidance for the 2024 financial year, hoping to mine more gold at a lower operating cost.
