At the beginning of August 2021, Jörg Krummsdorf (operator at MIBRAG) was engaged to transfer practical knowledge and to support the colleagues in the operation of IPCC in a Russian open pit.
Another project is the construction of a wind farm with 17 powerful wind turbines in close proximity to the Schleenhain opencast mine. The wind farm with a capacity of 102 MW and an annual electricity generation of around 230 GWh is expected to deliver electricity from 2024.
In a country such as South Africa that relies heavily on coal production for electricity generation, the quality of the fuel can determine the difference between a fully operational power plant and one that’s crippled by breakdowns or – at best – running at below optimum capacity.
