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 ...
Benefits of improved performance monitoring of mine cooling systems
Mine cooling system components are an integral part of a mine's ventilation system. A mine's reliance on these capital intensive components are set to increase as mines deepen. Mine cooling systems consume up to a quarter ...
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 ...
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 ...
