Contract Power has entered into a new 7 year Build Own and Operate contract with Blackham Resources for the Matilda Gold Project in Wiluna. The project consists of two stages incorporating existing site infrastructure with new generation plant totaling 18MW of installed capacity.
10MW of diesel power was installed during stage 1 and closely followed by an additional 8MW of gas powered generation for stage 2, expandable to 12MW as the plant grows. The ability to offer a gas powerstation to further compliment the required power demand and goal of cheaper and reliable power between CPG and the client is highly beneficial to both parties. Completion of the diesel station was August 2016 with the construction of the gas station to follow.
Contract Power followed the diesel installation with 8MW of Cummins gas units in the form of QSV91 units. This included the installation of a new engine hall, switchroom and supporting infrastructure within 28 weeks from contract award.
