Energy Plug signs first battery deal with Ximen

Earlier this year, Energy Plug announced an agreement for a two-phase clean electricity generation programme with Ximen to design, power, and generate energy for the Kenville Gold Mine, leveraging renewable power sources including solar and hydropower. During the programme’s first phase, Energy Plug will supply and support the installation of a solar power-connected 20 kWh Lithium-Iron Phosphate battery application helping Ximen avoid black and brown outs while reducing their overall diesel consumption helping with its net-zero targets.

“Energy Plug is committed to helping organisations of all sizes tap into battery storage technologies to support climate objectives and reduce energy costs,” said Broderick Gunning, Energy Plug President and CEO. “We’re pleased to be working alongside Ximen to deliver a clean energy programme that will support its critical infrastructure and balance its energy supply with renewable energy sources, validating the important role of BESS for sustainable energy.”

The second phase of the energy programme is expected to include the installation of a 100 kWh BESS at the Kenville Gold Mine. The BESS systems will be designed to accommodate high power consumption equipment including compressors and ventilation systems. Once installed, the BESS system will allow Ximen to store energy during off-peak hours and supply it back during peak load periods, increasing the energy efficiency of the mine site, and reducing strain on the site’s grid system.

“When we looked to expand our clean energy programme to support Kenville Gold Mine operations, Energy Plug was a natural fit,” said Christopher R. Anderson, President, CEO, and Director, Ximen. “Energy Plug’s technology will integrate seamlessly within our existing infrastructure, providing critical support for our energy system and enabling us to make significant progress toward our net zero objectives.”
