VoltVision maintains African expansion with key mining contracts

VoltVision, a high-voltage electrical data analytics business, has continued its expansion across the mining sectors of Africa and the Middle East

After conducting successful trials, the company has acquired four new contracts with top-tier miners in a development which proves its capabilities in the digitisation of complex high and medium voltage power grids, according to the company. The contact wins have also been taken as a demonstration of the company’s success in helping mining companies to improve operational efficiencies and accelerate the decarbonisation of the industry. The four contracts include:

Barrick Gold – Lumwana Project: Barrick has partnered with VoltVision to gain a deeper understanding of its power performance at both a site and group level. With its solutions enabling the operations team to monitor the electrical performance of the processing plant, efficiency gains can be captured and it will help manage the relationship with the grid supplier through ongoing monitoring and billing verification.

Centamin – Sukari Mine: VoltVision will digitise three critical areas of the Centamin Sukari mine complex in Egypt. This will include underground operations, the process plant and all power generation units. VoltVision’s solutions will enable Sukari to better operate its Power Management System, maximise solar PV usage, and advance to automated real-time energy reporting.

Resolute Mining – Syama Project: VoltVision will work to provide Resolute with better visibility into Syama’s medium voltage power network. VoltVision has retrofitted its solutions across Syama’s entire MV power network enabling the site management team to monitor diesel generation, power usage and power quality. VoltVision has streamlined the reporting process, guaranteeing accuracy and availability by using its customised reporting feature.

Allied Gold – Sadiola Project: At Allied Gold's site, VoltVision has implemented a monitoring solution, providing site-wide power digitisation. This has given the ExCo team unprecedented access to power usage and quality data across the entire processing plant, allowing them to identify areas for improved efficiency. VoltVision has also built a centralised multi-asset monitoring tool for the site management team.

“We are thrilled to be working with Centamin, Resolute Mining, Allied Gold and Barrick’s Lumwana complex in their respective efforts to improve operational efficiencies, reduce costs and address climate change,” remarked Manoli Yannaghas, co-founder and managing director of VoltVision. “VoltVision is proud to be supporting an increasing number of leading miners in Africa and the Middle East on their journey to becoming more responsible users of power, tackling energy wastage and addressing carbon intensity.

“Our solutions are installed without the need for operational shutdowns and at a fraction of the price of alternatives. The power efficiencies and cost savings recorded by our customers in just a few months is a testament to the effectiveness of power transparency that a digital analytics solution can offer.”
