With fuel consumption comprising around 80% of the cost of remote mine power supply, we understand that delivering economic value to our customers means that we must have the best fuel efficiency in the industry.
We achieve this through numerous proprietary innovations, equipment modifications and design features. As a result, we are able to provide guaranteed fuel efficiency performance (net of power station parasitic and auxiliary loads).
KPS has successfully managed and mitigated fuel efficiency risk by performing the following:
- equipment selection based on well proven “in field” efficiency performance in remote mining operations with extreme climates and challenging conditions
- securing and encouraging highly productive personnel to manage and develop performance enhancement innovation
- continuous evaluation of new technology opportunities, including low temperature waste heat recovery and intake cooling to achieve maximum efficiency and development of “low cost” dual fuel conversion technology on standard diesel solutions
