Rolls-Royce's All Electric Spirit of Innovation Takes to the Skies

Rolls-Royce's All Electric Spirit of Innovation Takes to the Skies

Rolls-Royce have announced the completion of the first flight of theirr all-electric 'Spirit of Innovation' aircraft. The plane took to the skies propelled by its powerful 400kW electric powertrain with the most power-dense battery pack ever assembled for an aircraft. This is another step towards the plane's world-record attempt and another milestone on the aviation industry's journey towards decarbonisation.

Largest Solar-plus-Storage Solution for Northern Africa Mining Site

Largest Solar-plus-Storage Solution for Northern Africa Mining Site

The project is scheduled to be commissioned in the first half of 2022. It will cut the mine's diesel consumption by approximately 20 to 22 million liters per year and thus offset between 53,000 and 60,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. The solar-plus-storage micro-grid installation will enable Centamin to tangibly reduce its mine's electricity bills, as the operator will partially shift away from fuel, which is often volatile in price.
