Client: Barrick Gold Mines
Location: Nevada, USA
POWER Engineers provided Owner’s Engineering services for the development of a Barrick-owned power supply for its mining operations in Nevada. Initially, POWER Engineers provided technical information and estimates and assisted Barrick in determining the best approach based on economics and suitability for Barrick’s objectives.
Barrick and POWER determined that a simple cycle reciprocating plant option would best suit Barrick’s requirements. POWER’s team then moved ahead with preparing the EPC specification for the project and began working closely with Wärtsilä, the engine-generator vendor, to design the plant.
