Economic and Technical Evaluation of Solar-Assisted Water Pump Stations for Mining Applications: A Case of Study

Abstract

Nowadays, energy and water are some of the most important issues facing the mining industry. Many mines are located in desert areas, and they need to pump water from isolated wells or from the ocean. Therefore, in order to satisfy the water demand, many high-power water pump stations are required. The operation of these systems is expensive due to the high… (More)
