The remoteness of site and power infrastructure means reliable access to power is a luxury for mining projects, leading to greater dependence on alternative power sources.
In most cases this would involve building a standalone power plant but according to rental power supplier Aggreko, such an option brings with it its own challenges.
While building a power plant may offer the best bottom line outcome for a company, Aggreko argues that renting power offers companies much more flexibility, vital during the construction and ramp-up stage of projects when cash flows are tightest.
