Power solutions for deserts mining operations in Chile

Power Generators-Power Plant-Copiapò-Chile-1


PRAMAC has been selected by a private group specialized in mining and mineral transportation, located in Copiapó, Chile to join in a project installed at approximately 800 km north of Santiago, in the middle of the Atacama desert. The request was for a modular power operating with low maintenance costs, optimized fuel consumption and with standard protection against dust produced in the operation. To ensure power, PRAMAC has supplied 10 diesel generators running for up to 24 hours a day, during mining operations and supplying more than 5 megawatts of electricity. Each of the PRAMAC gensets has been provided to supply close to 600 kilovolt-amperes for the mining machinery and the other electrical equipment. All the generators were built with special sand trap filters to ensure extra protection against dust.
