Zenith Energy has amended its power purchase agreement with Northern Star Resources to add a further six megawatts to its power station at the Jundee gold mine.

Under the amended terms of the PPA, Zenith will build, own and operate an expanded 24MW power station to power the Jundee project.

The power station will comprise an upgrade to the existing facility with the installation of an additional 6MW of gas generator technology.

The power station incorporates natural gas fuelled generators.

The new PPA is expected to commence in the third quarter of the 2019 financial year, with a 10-year term aligned with the existing agreement.

“We are delighted to sign this PPA amendment with Northern Star, which further demonstrates Zenith Energy’s ability to build strong, long-lasting relationships with tier one clients such as Northern Star Resources through the continued delivery of excellence in safe, innovative, reliable, highly efficient and cost-effective power generation solutions to support the diverse needs of our resources clients in demanding remote locations,” Zenith managing director Hamish Moffat said.

The news comes after competitor Pacific Energy recently extended its power contract at Mineral Resources’ Wodgina lithium project to $30 million.
