The Challenge

Required a reliable, power source to operate a lithium crushing plant in the NT

A lithium crushing plant in Northern Territory required a customised generator synchronisation system to complete daily operations.


  • 3x 650kVa

    Prime Power CAT Generators

  • 2x 715kVa

    Standby Power CAT Generators

  • 1x 16,000L

    Fuel Tank

The Solution

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.

The Outcome

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.
