Energy solutions for mines and quarries

Mining and quarrying: a demanding industry. A demand for electricity to minimise the downtime of the electricity network and to meet environmental and safety standards.

As the content and the quality of deposits decrease, mines and quarries have to use more machines in order to extract the same quantity of ore. They also have to respond to the demand for ore created by the energy transition (the deployment of renewable energies, electric mobility, etc.).

To rise to these challenges, mines and quarries need a reliable and available electricity supply in order to function at maximum capacity. Ore extraction operations are located in difficult environments that are far removed from the electricity grids. The slightest failure of the electricity supply can have serious financial and human consequences. The electrical systems used in mines and quarries are subject to specific rules intended to reduce the risk of explosions and to protect the safety of the personnel.

Thanks to our expertise in energy engineering for mines, we can offer energy solutions that meet all the needs of mines and quarries:

  • the supply of a continuous source of energy to power the machines, living quarters and ore extraction operations, especially on isolated sites and in very demanding environments (weather conditions, dust, etc.)
  • guaranteed continuity of activity under the best possible conditions in the event of a failure, thanks to our backup power supply solutions.

We also propose a broad range of Caterpillar engines for drilling, crushing, screening and inland waterway and maritime dredging.

Backup diesel gensets for mines and quarries

We offer a wide range of backup diesel gensets with various power outputs that limit the risk of failures and minimise downtime, while also meeting the emission standards in force. Our backup solutions allow you to concentrate on production and to avoid any periods during which your systems are idle.

Mines and quarries are usually located on sites far from the main electricity grids, and in particularly difficult environments: high altitudes, low ambient temperatures, explosive environments, etc. You need reliable and well-adapted gensets that meet the safety standards for underground and open-cast mines, or industrial mineral treatment plants, in order to meet the electricity supply requirements of your mines and quarries, while also optimising your costs.

Our experts offer the best equipment in our range of diesel and biodiesel gensets that are best adapted to the mining and quarrying industry. Our high-quality silent gensets are prepared to withstand even the toughest working environments. They are reliable and durable, with low emission rates.

Our gensets can also be used to continuously supply sites that are isolated from the electricity grid.

Industrial engines for mines and quarries

In order to succeed in the mining and quarrying sector, you must maximise the productivity of every machine and limit downtime. We can call on our experience in every aspect of the mining industry to propose innovative diesel engine solutions for drilling, crushing, screening and inland waterway and maritime dredging.

The engines in your machines must be compact and environmentally friendly, with a favourable weight-to-power ratio Our renowned expertise in industrial engines enables us to propose a broad range of high-performance engines. Our engines are designed to operate in even the toughest conditions, while also guaranteeing maximum availability and low fuel consumption.

We can support your integration engineering works to strike the best compromise between performance and the cost of operation.

Photovoltaic solar panels

Our photovoltaic solar panels, which produce a renewable energy that supplements your main source of energy, are the ideal solution for isolated sites. They enable you to reach your sustainability targets, while guaranteeing a secure energy supply in the long term and at a controlled cost.

You can install our solar panels in any free spaces to meet the energy demands of your mine or quarry.

Eneria Hybrid Sunbox

Are you looking for energy solutions to operate your mines and quarries, which are usually located in remote places, while making energy savings at the same time? We have developed a solution that combines the production and storage of solar energy with the installation of a genset. The Eneria Hybrid Sunbox is a hybrid diesel / solar / battery energy production system that consumes solar energy as a priority and stores any excess solar energy in its batteries. The batteries then supply the energy when the sun is weaker. The batteries are powered and charged by the genset at night or in overcast weather.

Hydrogen genset

The hydrogen genset solution: zero emissions guaranteed. The GEH2® only discharges water. Totally silent and odour-free.

Hydrogen-powered fuel cells produce the electricity you need for both a continuous power supply and a backup energy source.

When combined with our other sources of renewable energies, this technology offers a multitude of possibilities to reduce the environmental impact of your mining activities.
