The technology group Wartsila will supply a natural gas fuelled 22 MW engine power plant to the mining company Argonaut Gold Inc. at its Magino Project in Canada. The order emphasizes once again Wartsila's growing presence in the Canadian energy market, as well as its strong position in serving the power needs for the mining industry globally. The order was booked by Wartsila in Q1 2022.

The power plant will provide a reliable and cost-effective supply of electricity to the Magino Gold Mine located in the Province of Ontario. The order includes four Wartsila 34SG gas engines, electrical equipment, auxiliaries and plant commissioning. The power plant will be in operation in 2023.

“The excellent reliability and heat rate efficiency of the Wartsila engines selected for this project are important factors for mining operations where power availability is absolutely essential and fuel costs are very significant. In 2021 alone, we received four engine power plant orders in Canada and three of those were from mining companies. This is a clear indication of our recognized capabilities and strength in this market,” commented Jon Rodriguez, Director, Engine Power Plants, North America, Wartsila Energy.

To date, Wartsila has supplied power generating capacity totalling 620 MW to mining operations in North America.

Flexible Wartsila power plants like this one utilize natural gas, the cleanest fuel widely available today. It is considered an important transitional fuel as the development of zero-carbon future alternatives continues. Wartsila engines are a future-proof investment that can already combust 100% synthetic carbon-neutral methane and methanol and have the ability to operate on blends of natural gas and hydrogen as well.
