June 2015 – Eternity Power
Eternity Power is a Thermal Harvesting™ Power Plant at the Anglo Platinum Waterval Smelting Complex near Rustenburg. It represents an innovation in the field of energy efficiency and is the world’s first power plant of its kind. The plant is designed to generate 4.3MW of clean energy using waste heat generated by a converter and will result in a reduction of the smelter’s carbon footprint. In June 2015, the plant was hot commissioned and is performing beyond expectations, generating more power than designed even at lower than expected heat loads.
We are extremely satisfied with the results so far. It demonstrates that our Thermal Harvesting™ concept can deliver cheaper clean power at high levels of availability with no impact on the client’s underlying operations. It is a concept that we believe can be successfully implemented at other large South African mining and industrial companies.
Vuselela Energy is the original developer of the project and operates and manages the plant. Both Eternity Power and Vuselela Energy are subsidiaries of H1 Holdings.
