Helping you get the best from your assets

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

Once a project is operational, it’s easy to think that the hard part is over and take the foot off the gas.

But in reality, this is the time that owners should be looking at ways to squeeze more value from their investment.

Owners should be asking:

  • How can I minimize down time?
  • How can I tweak misalignment to improve performance?
  • How can I maximize technology advancements throughout the 25+ years operational life?

From operational analysis to asset management, these questions can be answers and project performance optimized through our independent advice.

As the risk of failing to accredit increases, many buyers are sensibly choosing to delay investment until projects are up and running.

While operational assets are not subject to the same licensing, construction and commissioning risks as pre-construction projects, they do still present significant pitfalls related to long-term energy yield.
