Improving productivity and power quality at a gold mine with STATCOM
One of the largest gold mines in Africa faced several power quality issues in the winder operation. Voltage fluctuations and harmonic distortions would require additional diesel gensets to be made operational. At times these power quality challenges have led to unexpected production downtime. Merus Power supplied a containerized STATCOM solution to be connected to the MV network. Efficient reactive power supply stabilized the grid and winder operation. Improved torque and fewer diesel generators increased productivity and cut the operational costs.
