Suntrace together with BayWa r.e. achieved another important milestone in supporting B2Gold’s implementation of the Fekola Solar Project in Mali. One of the world’s largest solar battery HFO hybrid projects. The 36 MWp solar plant combined with an 17MW/15MWh energy storage system will be integrated with the existing HFO Power Plant enabling fuel savings of 13.1 million litres HFO per year. We are very proud that B2Gold has entrusted Suntrace together with BayWa r.e. as Engineering and Procurement contractor to support the development and implementation of this innovative project, which is a landmark in terms of battery and PV plant size for an HFO off-grid system.
Right now, Suntrace’s Senior Project Manager Andreas Lukaszcyk is on site, supporting the construction and commissioning activities.
