Mining and Remote Power

Remote Microgrid & Mine Power Engineering

Mining and Remote and Off-grid Power for Islanded Microgrids are prevalent today in remote locations and Island nations. They represent a modern approach to solving a variety of energy supply challenges. Most notable the integration of renewable power and energy storage with preexisting generation. Their unique nature, however, can still trip up even the most advanced engineers. Before starting to design a system, it is important to understand the process of bringing about a micro-grid from initial concept to real-world operations. Most important is understanding how to design it.

Prefeasibility and Design Engineering
  • Preliminary engineering, design and studies
  • Capital and operational cost budgeting
  • Environmental constraints assessment, environmental
    impact assessments and permitting (including
    government, public and Indigenous consultation)
  • Energy yield assessment
Management Consulting, Contract Review, and Economic Analysis
  • Techno-economic assessments of on-site power generation options
  • Integration studies and synthetic PPA evaluation
  • Review of significant agreements and pro forma
Owners Engineering and Installation Supervision
  • Contract reviews
  • Owner’s engineering services
  • Preparing and managing specifications
  • Reviewing bids
  • Reviewing contractor performance
“Rob Lydan demonstrates an impressive understanding of the complex technical and commercial implications of integrating renewable power into mining operations. He was able to present this in a way that it could be understood and recommunicated within the organization.”
