Energy storage optimizes wind power for remote Arctic mine

A Saft lithium-ion (Li-ion) energy storage system (ESS) is maximizing the penetration of wind power and saving fuel at Glencore’s RAGLAN mine in Northern Canada. The ESS is rugged enough to support year-round wind power generation at the remote Arctic mine.

OVERVIEW:

TUGLIQ Energy Corp. owns and operates 3MW of Saft ESS and 6MW of wind power, at Glencore’s RAGLAN Mine. The Mine’s energy-intensive operations require up to 18 megawatts (MW) of mission-critical power, within an autonomous hybrid diesel-renewable-storage smartgrid.
