Alternative energy solutions for the mining industry
Immense pressure is put on the South African mining sector to be as energy efficient as possible. A solar water heating solution or hybrid solar solution are highly effective measures that will save energy and cut on a mine’s operational costs. Guaranteed hot water for shift workers and adequate laundry facilities are examples of the ideal energy saving mechanisms that can be applied to the mining sector.
Selected Energy’s largest installation is in Botswana. Our installation of 6 000 systems at Jwaneng and Orapa mines are still operational, after more than 20 years of reliable service.
