The installation of five highly-customised CAT generators for synchronisation
Blue Diamond Machinery supplied 5 x highly customised CAT generators – 3 x 650kVa prime power, 2 x 715kVa standby power and a 16,000L fuel tank. The generators were upgraded in-house to run in synchronisation to help push out service intervals. It also leaves critical power redundancies onsite for breakdowns and unforeseen maintenance. Each generator is fitted with upgraded ComAp InteliVision 12Touch & InteliGen GSC-C controllers, air filtration to prevent lithium dust contamination, and an automated refueling system linked to the fuel tank.
Ensured reliable, stable primary and emergency power solution for the crushing plant
Ensured reliable, readily available power and backup power for the crushing plant while lowering fuel costs and generator longevity.
