Energy Centre for a Gold Processing Plant
In 2019, the MKS Group of Companies commissioned the country's first modular power plant with a total capacity of 18 MW based on MWM TCG 2032B gas genset engines (4,5 MW). The object is implemented for the gold processing plant «Svetlinskaya» in the Plastovsky district of the Chelyabinsk region. The MKS specialists were the first in Russia to develop and build an innovative two-storey modules especially for this project, having performed the whole complex of works «turnkey».
The mini-MPP for GPP «Svetlinskaya» is currently the first modular power plant in Russia based on the largest MWM engines (TCG 2032B 4,5 MW), fully designed and built by the Russian specialists – the MKS Group of Companies. The total capacity of the facility is 18 MW. The power plant consists of four modules – «giants». The height of each structure reaches 8,73 meters, length – 16,99 meters, width – 12,08 meters.
The MKS Group of Companies was the first in Russia to offer an ultimate solution for the construction of two-storey modules, providing a free access to all elements of the gas genset engine both from the outside and from the inside. Also, the company's specialists equipped the facility with the MKS ventilation and heating systems, thus offering a complete packaging of the largest MWM engines.
The modular power plant concept allows to assemble an object as a «construction set»: one module consists of eight small containers mounted in two floors. This facilitates the transportation and assembly of the power plant greatly, and therefore accelerates and cheapens the facility construction. The «construction footprint» of one module is 18 x 12 m. For space considerations the adjacent modules can be installed wall to wall. This combination makes the modular power plant by the ISS Group of Companies a very attractive energy solution, especially for those enterprises that need to satisfy the large demand for electric power in remote places in the shortest possible time.
Currently, the power plant supplies electric and heat power to the Russia's largest gold processing plant. One of the main advantages of a modular power plant is the possibility of phased increase of the facility to six blocks installed in a row. The power plant can increase its capacity to 27 MW if needed.
Based on experts’ estimates, the own power plant will allow the gold mining factory to reduce the electric power cost three times. Heat power, as a by-product, is free of charge. The modular power plant operates in parallel with the external network. The payback period of the facility is about 3 years.
