Glencore RAGLAN Mine Renewable Electricity Smart-Grid Pilot Demonstration

TUGLIQ received funding for this project under the Government of Canada's ecoEnergy Innovation program in 2014. 

This project consists of a wind hydrogen smart grid system at Glencore’s RAGLAN Nickel Mine, demonstrating in severe arctic climate conditions that industrial / community scale renewable energy with storage can significantly reduce the cost of energy and the diesel consumption, compared to diesel only or to wind-diesel alternatives.

Storage consists of a fast transient 200 kW/ 1.5 kWh KTSI GTR-200 flywheel to filter out large wind power variations of short duration; a 200 kW/ 250 kWh Electrovaya  SuperPolymer 2.0™ Li-Ion battery to start-up diesel generators or fuel cells for transition backup; and a HYDROGENICS 200 kW/ 1 MWh system (HySTAT™ 60 Electrolyser 315 kW with an HyPMTM XR 198 kW Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell) to minimize the loss of wind energy over longer time periods.
