Customer stories

An easy decision

As the world’s largest copper supplier, Chile produces more than 5 million tons of the metal per year, accounting for more than 30% of global supply. BHP Billiton, a major player in the world of copper mining, commissioned a consortium, which contracted with an EPC, to execute its vision of responsible and sustainable growth via the construction of a new power plant.

Flexibility and reliability were key. BHP Billiton also required a power generation solution that offers high efficiency and availability, and the consortium and EPC selected two GT13E2 heavy duty gas turbines to power BHP Billiton’s 517 MW Kelar combined-cycle power plant.
