The Diavik mine in Canada's Northwest Territories requires an estimated 1.5 million gallons of diesel per year for generators that produce the 19 to 26 megawatts of electricity to power this iconic diamond mine. eVinci microreactors could eliminate the need to deliver fuel to power this arctic operation.
