Helping you get the best from your assets

The project is commissioned; the assets are generating power - now what?

The project build and live date is only just the beginning. Once operational, owners must begin to establish how to generate more value from their investment. 

To achieve the greatest value, owners should be asking:

  • How can I minimize downtime? 
  • How can I tweak misalignment to improve performance? 
  • How can I maximise technology advancements throughout a project's 25+ years of operational life? 
  • Why are aspects of my project underperforming and how can I proactively tackle these issues?  

We provide independent expert analysis and industry-leading asset management advice to projects situated across the globe. Learn more about how you can optimize performance via the above drop down menu.

 

 
Optimizing project return on investment through asset management

Project owners want the best operational performance and good margins when refinancing. Investors want assurances that they're investing in a strong project that is both technically and financially secure.

Undertaking asset management is more than just site inspections and maintenance.

It is a delicate balance of proactive and reactive techniques that encompass many different elements, a combination designed to fit each project.

Our independent specialists work with owners and investors to optimize assets and strengthen the bottom line.
