Cost savings on mine dewatering pumps by reducing preparation- and comeback loads
With the introduction of a time-of-use (TOU) tariff structure by Eskom, the implementation of projects that shift load from peak TOU times to times of the day when electrical energy is less expensive has increased. To ...
The impact of reducing mine chilled water supply during periods of low production
As part of the Demand Side Management (DSM) initiative, Eskom partially funds load management and energy efficiency projects. Large industries are therefore willing participants in the Eskom funded electricity savings ...
An integrated energy efficiency strategy for deep mine ventilation and refrigeration
Mine-cooling and ventilation energy cost saving projects are implemented ad hoc and scattered throughout the system. Therefore, an overhead view and strategy is needed to help realise the total savings available on the ...
Energy efficiency through variable speed drive control on a cascading mine cooling system
An ever-expanding global industry focuses on energy supply and use. Cost-effective electrical energy production and reduced consumption pave the way for this expansion. Eskom's demand-side management (DSM) initiative ...
