Civil and Electrical Design and Project Cost Estimation
Enviko maintains an up-to-date database of all project cost components, from turbines to trenches. The database is continually updated and refined, using actual costs from completed projects and quotations and estimates obtained for proposed sites.
Among our design capabilities we can produce suitable site specific foundation and earthing design drawings and electrical design to facilitate the construction of a wind turbine.
Enviko has particular expertise in minimising cost by design, including tight definition of the scope of civil works and negotiating with local electricity companies to secure minimum cost electrical connection and optimum operational performance (capacity, power factor etc.)
Enviko maintains a full project financial model, which can generate all parameters required by both equity investors and debt providers. It has wide sensitivity analysis capabilities, covering wind resource, RPI, capital and operating costs, gearing and debt term and provides enough financial information to allow the client to make an informed decision and support an application for finance.
Our financial modelling also assesses revenue from the Feed in Tariff or ROC schemes and from exported electricity along with the cost savings from offset electricity usage and the annual turbine output.
We can provide key financial indicators including ROCE – Return on Capital Employed, IRR – Internal Rate of Return, NPV (Net Present Value), simple payback, maintenance costs, warranty costs, operator costs – rates, grid usage etc, insurance costs, total life revenue generation information and the carbon reduction in tonnes.
Enviko aims to deliver projects in a timely, safe and economical fashion. Our client-focused approach provides a flexible service from feasibility to commissioning, applying innovative solutions to the challenges confronted.
Turbine procurement is one of the most important aspects of a wind energy development. Turbines may represent up to 80% of the capital cost of a wind farm and their reliability and long-term power output are crucial to the financial performance of the project.
It is important to secure not only an acceptable price, but also the right guarantees, delivery and performance bonds and specific guarantees on aspects of performance governed by planning conditions, such as noise.
We have long-standing contacts with all the major manufacturers. Acting on behalf of owners, investors and banks, Enviko draws on years of experience to offer a comprehensive array of commercial and management services.
Whether planning, acquiring, operating, re-powering or selling a wind farm, Enviko can offer clients a range of skills and experience – from essential project services such as due diligence, through to adding value by way of project lifetime support.
