We would like to recommend an exciting article about the value add of utilizing solar power forecasting technology for large scale off-grid hybrid systems such as B2Gold’s 36 MWp solar-battery hybrid plant for the Fekola Gold mine in Mali.
“It is a strong commitment by B2Gold to build such a significant solar-battery plant as a fuel saver for the Fekola mine. This project is a landmark solution, combining a significant solar energy share with highest security in the overall power supply. The solution is an intelligent combination of photovoltaic, a large battery system and Reuniwatt’s sophisticated solar forecasting service that harmonizes the solar power generation with the existing HFO engines. We highly appreciate that B2Gold has entrusted Suntrace, together with BayWa r.e., as expert to support the implementation of this innovative project.”, Boris Westphal, CEO of Suntrace
