Reliable power for a remote mine

We worked with the owners and operators of a remote mine to examine the reliability of its power supply. There was no access to the regional electricity grid, so the mine generated its own power to meet its current needs as well as those of surrounding communities. A planned mine expansion meant that the power generation and distribution capacity for the plant needed to be upgraded. This prompted the need for a risk assessment.

This case discusses the importance of tailoring the consequence criteria for project risk assessment, using several forms of analysis to set priorities, and the need to take a broad perspective.
