Solar energy is a source of cheap renewable energy and a bill board promoting green and sustainable business. But foremost it is a financial product, an asset that generates revenue. As such focus on cost is key because lower cost means higher returns. This is driving a race to the bottom on every aspect of this sector, from module price that has declined by an order of magnitude in the past decade to cost of finance. The challenge that our customers face is to maintain a high standard of quality and to avoid that their assets fail and become a liability.
We are proud of the fact that we can increase the quality and professionalism in the solar industry with our expertise while maintaining focus on cost. Our services build trust and enhance the quality of solar energy projects, ensuring high profitability throughout the lifetime.
We provide two categories of services. For roof, project or land-owners and solar energy project developers, we provide owner’s engineering services. For banks, investors, insurers and asset managers we provide independent engineering services.
As owner’s engineer, we support the development of a photovoltaic PV project, from conceptual phase to realisation and asset management. We bring technical excellence to the project, reducing the risk of failure or accelerated aging and maximizing energy yield and economic return. Further information is provided in the owners engineering brochure. The owner’s engineering services include:
- Feasibility study
- Land acquisition & permitting support
- Basic Design
- EPC evaluation
- Project management
- Construction supervision
- Acceptance testing
With independent engineering, we service our customers who need an independent opinion on the technical risks in a project, a root cause of a failure or the quality of a product. We bring world-class expertise, a cost-efficient client- and risk-tailored approach and a proactive attitude. Further information is provided in the technical due diligence brochure. The independent engineering services include:
- Lender’s Engineer
- Technical Due Diligence (Project and M&A)
- Power failure investigation (Root cause analysis)
- Technology evaluation (bankability study)
- Independent opinion for dispute resolutionOur experience in solar energy covers 100’s of projects, totaling more than 1000 MWp. Our customers say that we have improved the quality of their projects. That makes us very proud.
