Site selection. Location data. Climate and Topography Location.
Selecting a suitable site is crucial part of developing a viable solar PV project. In selecting a site, the aim is to maximize output and minimize cost. The main constrains that need to be assessed include:
Studies and evaluation of solar potential. Energy Yield Prediction.The energy yield prediction provides the basis for calculating project revenue. The aim is to predict the average annual energy output for the lifetime of the proposed power plant.
Project Development Support and Owner’s engineering. Developing projects on behalf of its clients, including full management authorization procedure and tasks such as design of the preliminary engineering project up to the connection point, management of connection point acceptance and communication with involved administrations for release of necessary partial authorizations.
Feasibility studies for the construction of solar power plants including technical, operational and financial feasibility.
Technical evaluation about the state of the national electric grid and the connection PV system. Technical opinion about the electric market regulatory environment.
Technical Due Diligence prior to the financial closure.
Technical consulting and auditing services such as due diligences, legislation consulting, market studies, equipment procurement and BOS consulting. These services could be provided at any phase of the photovoltaic facility lifetime.
Technical Due Diligence Report: project, production, estimation and analysis of EPC and O&M contracts, evaluation of components, analysis of production, Performance Ratio and availability, etc. and financial: study of legal and tax structure, analysis of assets and liabilities, recalculation of incomes, …).
Technical assessment during negotiation of Main Contract: Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC), Operation & Maintenance (O&M) and Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) contracts. Selection and overview of development subcontractors and analysis and selection of EPC contractors.
Support in assessing and selecting PV modules and inverters and other PV system components.
Support for Solar module supply agreements (MSA).
Detailed Engineering under criteria of cost optimization, energy yield maximization, good engineering practices, strict health & safety consideration and absolute compliance with local, national and international standard and regulation.
Grid Studies. Definition of necessary electric infrastructure for connection to National Grid.
Design and engineering review. Design optimization.
Request for Proposal (RFP) and Terms of Reference (TOR) definition for the different packages PV Pant.
Analysis and selection of technologies and contractors.
Technical Assessment during construction and commissioning.
Project and Site management. Providing all the key construction roles of on behalf of the client, such as Project Manager, Site Manager and Health & Safety Coordination. Specialized engineers to act as legal representation according with the Administration’s regulation.
Construction and Commissioning oversight. Technical supervision ensures proper project execution: civil works (access, foundations and structures), mechanical tracker, power system, control system and final connection to the grid.
Technical Assessment during Provisional Acceptance and Definitive Acceptance Test. Mechanical, substantial and final completion tests.
