At this stage, the services support project from its final development stages, feasibility and decision, contracting, financing, construction and warranty period evaluation.

Technical Due Diligence

For financing or project transaction purposes, all the main project risks are analysed and scrutinized, in order to support the financing or acquisition decision. The main risks normally considered are the resource, licensing, construction and engineering, technological, environmental, as well as operational.

Contractual issues (TSA, Warranties, O&M, BoP)

Support to developers in the main contracts involved in a renewable project, such as turbine supply agreement, EPC/BOP, warranties and performance tests, while including operation & maintenance.

Commissioning and Inspections (factory and site)

Verification of equipment, both at the factory and on site, as well as commissioning assessment, including verification of permitting requests.

Estimation of wind and solar power generation profile price for long term power purchase agreements

Environmental supervision

Some of the biggest possible environmental impacts may occur during the construction stage. As a consequence, the environmental authorizations sometimes demand a strict supervision of the compliance with the specified procedures and restrictions.

Bankable independent energy & site assessment

A full detailed and independent energy & site assessment is mostly adequate for project feasibility analysis, for submitting to financiers or investors, as well as for transaction purpose. Such study should ideally include an independent appreciation of all key aspects: technical site visit, independent measurements validation, long term resource analysis, energy calculation as well as turbine suitability verification. Additionally, a detailed uncertainty analysis is a very important point of such study.

Power performance evaluation

The verification of the guaranteed power curve in a wind farm is a delicate procedure, normally allocated to an independent consultant accepted by both the project owner and turbine supplier. Moreover, the procedure is undertaken under the specifications of IEC 61400-12-1.

Biodiversity monitoring

Monitoring of biodiversity in order to analyse and mitigate the possible damages caused by the project.

Owner’s engineer and supervision

Supervision of wind farm or solar plant implementation, including construction, equipment checking, schedules, payments, tests and acceptance.
