Bougainville is an autonomous region in Papua New Guinea, named after the French navigator, Louis Antoine de Bougainville. It was first populated by the natives of the region until its occupation by Germany, Britain and Australia. In recent years, the island has seen internal conflict on mining-related issues – dividing the island between those who see it as environmentally unsound and those who see it as a source of improvement for the citizens.
Mining is the main economic component of Bougainville, with copper and gold as the main products. All mines, however, are under a moratorium and have ceased all operations until further notice. When mining activities resume, it is expected that large amounts of power will be needed to supply electricity to supply demand.
Areas or industries that may require interim power solutions:
- Mining Industry
- Power Utility Industry
Altaaqa Global can deliver 20 MW to 100 MW temporary power plants that are available for rapid deployment to supply the necessary electricity to Bougainville’s large-scale mining operations.
