CASE STUDY:

Saskatchewan Mining Project

Light Towers Rentals for a Saskatchewan Mining Project

Project Scope

Two Cahill Solar Hybrid LT’s were sent to a Saskatchewan mine site on a trial basis to see how they performed in the longer hours of the night and during below-freezing temperatures. As you can see, as daylight hours extended in April, the average engine run time on the Cahill units decreased by over an hour per day.

Project Results

With the decreased engine run hours on the Cahill unit, the total cost savings using a Cahill Solar Hybrid Light Tower increased and ranged anywhere from $1,143/light/month up to $2,895/light/month, depending on if you want to account for daily labor to turn on and off a conventional light tower.

Benefits of Cahill Construction Solar Tower Rentals

Cahill presents a trio of hybrid solar-powered light towers: the LLTT-H, LLTB-H, and the LLTT-H XL. These towers boast exceptional fuel efficiency and can run for up to 35 days before requiring refuelling. Moreover, they demand fewer refuelling sessions and oil changes than standard light towers, reducing operational expenses and increasing operational uptime. Integrating the DSE 3G web interface + GPS module enables seamless real-time remote monitoring and operation.

These light towers epitomize environmental sustainability by integrating solar energy with a DC generator. They are particularly well-suited for continuous operations such as those found in mining, oil and gas, and construction industries, making them an ideal choice for round-the-clock operations.
