Africa: New microgrid with 30 MW solar announced

B2Gold announced that its Fekola gold mine would be upgraded with 30 MW solar by 2020.

The mine that is located in Mali currently runs on heavy-fuel oil. The addition of the solar power plant and a "significant battery storage component" is estimated to cost around USD38 million and has a four-year payback period. The project is scheduled for completion in August 2020. For B2Gold it will be the second off-grid solar power plant, after having inaugrated in May 2018 the Otjikoto gold mine solar plant, in Namibia.
