Helping our clients to make projects bankable and profitable
Mitigating risk is on every developer's mind.
For developers without the adequate in-house resource or the expertise required to develop a project, appointing an experienced owner's engineer can provide specialist guidance during the development and construction phases all the way through to commissioning.
From management of risk and construction monitoring, to contracting strategy and scheduling support, expertise and extensive project-based experience adds significant value and risk mitigation to any project.
Our extensive experience - in project planning, development, construction, project management, due diligence and operations - means that we have a unique insight into the risks and challenges that you'll face when developing and constructing a wind or solar farm.
Our engineering function brings together analysts, civil, electrical and mechanical engineers working closely with our project management team to ensure that the wind and solar projects that we work on are developed and constructed on time, on-spec and on budget.
Providing an end-to-end service, as owner's engineer we bring our experience to your project.
MEASUREMENT & RESOURCE ASSESSMENT
The foundation of a robust business case relies on accurate understanding of resource, so we undertake monitoring of data and witnessing of measurement installation which inputs into preliminary energy resource estimates.
Every project is different and that's why they demand a carefully thought-out contracting strategy to balance risk mitigation and optimising financial gains.That's why working with us on your contracting setup and risk analysis is so important.
From procurement of technology to Balance of Plant (BoP) procurement, we support clients with the tendering process and development of technical documents alongside legal advisors.
We deliver a comprehensive risk management plan and risk register, while analyzing project risk associated with schedule, cost and interface.
CAPEX & OPEX MODELLING
Our insight into CapEx and OpEx modelling delivers accurate projections, taking into account contingency modelling and O&M strategy across the full life of the project.
Support in developing, delivering and maintaining the project's master schedule and the project execution plan ensures that your project remains on time and, subsequently, within budget.
From foundation design and substation concepts, to array layout options and electrical system design, our engineering team give detailed insights based on site-specific conditions.
ENERGY YIELD ASSESSMENT
Our analysis provide accurate energy estimates for the site including uncertainty analysis and recommendations for strategies to reduce uncertainty.
GEOPHYSICAL & GEOTECHNICAL
Our engineers will give a high-level indication of seabed or soil conditions, water depths and topography to feed into concept design and feasibility studies.
We are the owner's engineer on several projects - read all about it.
