Caterpillar Electric Power
To convert the Appin and Tower coal mines into this significant power-generating resource, Energy Developments Ltd. (EDL), based in Brisbane, Queensland, looked to Caterpillar to provide a total of 94 Cat® G3516 natural-gas-fueled generator sets driven by lean-burn, low-emission reciprocating engines.
"With increasing demand to be more innovative and efficient, it's a good time to schedule Cat® Power Systems technical training seminars. Factory and dealer experts will come to your office to train your facilities engineering or consulting team on key components of owning and operating generator sets and other electric power generation products. Earn CEU credits and build relationships while you make sure you're getting the best training and support for the life of your products."
Hear how Stornaway Diamond Corporation in Canada has achieved a 27% reduction in gen set operating expenses, 15% reduction in mine operating expenses, reduced environmental impact and increased fuel transport safety. Patrick Godin, COO & Director of Stornaway Diamond Corporation in Canada discusses these and other reasons they selected Caterpillar natural gas gen sets running on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to provide electric power for the mine instead of using conventional diesel gen sets. It's a win for the environment and the balance sheet.
It takes a lot of energy to generate the necessary heat to grow flowers year-round, and Rosa Flora accomplishes this with the aid of its own combined heat and power (CHP) system that has earned recognition from the Canadian government for innovation and efficiency. Cat equipment includes 2xG3516 and 4xG3520C.
