UK based Rost International Trading Ltd., www.rostinternational.com has been appointed by US renewable energy originator, 247Solar Inc., www.247solar.com to develop their Concentrated Solar Power business in the International Mining Sector. Rost International partners come from the Mining, Energy and Water industries and have a strong track record in project management, business development, interim management and arranging finance and insurance for large worldwide capital projects.
GUARANTEED SECURE AND CLEAN POWER
247Solar Plants™ are ideally suited to mining applications in remote areas to provide reliable uninterrupted dispatchable power for mining and ancillary operations at very low operating costs.
A 400kW full scale commercial demonstrator is under construction in Morocco where potential customers can visit the plant and verify the benefits of 247Solar technology for themselves and observe how the technology can be scaled to larger size units.
HIGH RELIABILITY AND VERY LOW OPERATING COST
The 247Solar Thermal Storage System™ stores the sun’s energy as heat instead of electricity, eliminating the need for costly batteries and guaranteeing electricity on demand. The Plants’ turbines can burn a variety of fuels, enabling power to be supplied in a hybrid system around the clock in any weather for a fraction of the price of other renewables.
RAPID CONSTRUCTION, PHASED IMPLEMENTATION
247Solar Plants mainly use factory-built components making installation and commissioning timeframes short. Power for mine development, construction, pre-production, and production phases can be supplied incrementally, allowing for staged financing. 247Solar Plants use no water except mirror cleaning, produce no waste, and require minimal maintenance.
ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL BENEFITS
247Solar technology allows mining operations to significantly reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. Local communities and other social facilities may also benefit both immediately and after the mine has ceased operation, as the Plants can continue to supply local communities or be wholly or partially moved to other sites.
Rost International are looking forward to presenting 247Solar technology to Mining Companies and their financiers at Mines and Money and can be found on Stand A10 near the conference entrance.
