Cambridge Energy Partners Installs Next Generation Redeployable Solar Tracker at Newmont’s Akyem Operation in Ghana
CAMBRIDGE, September 6, 2018— Cambridge Energy Partners (CEP) announced today that Newmont Mining Corporation, one of the world’s largest gold producers and sustainability leaders, has deployed CEP’s redeployable Nomad solar PV tracker to demonstrate lower-cost renewable electricity and to offset energy demand at its Akyem operation in Ghana.
CEP’s Nomad is a prefabricated and redeployable solar generator with single-axis tracking technology. Capable for use in a variety of applications, this solar tracker is designed to be quickly deployed in scalable 30 kW segments, suitable for both small and large-scale projects. Energy generated by CEP’s Nomad is fully integrated into existing electrical networks to create a reliable and sustainable hybrid power system.
“We are thrilled that Newmont shares our vision and is demonstrating our solar technology at the Company’s Akyem operation in Ghana,” said Tom Miller, CEO of Cambridge Energy Partners. “Our vision is to deliver lower-cost energy to all remote mining sites with our innovative prefabricated solar tracking technology. In addition, the mobility of our solar technology significantly mitigates the risks often associated with permanent solar installations.”
Dr. Elaine Dorward-King, Newmont’s Executive Vice President for Sustainability and External Relations, added, “Renewable energy technologies such as the Nomad play an important role in Newmont’s long-term strategy to reduce carbon emissions while lowering our energy consumption and costs.”
