BREH is prepared to undertake energy from waste projects from beginning to end. The projects would be completed in stages as follows:
- Scoping Study that identifies the client’s conditions, requirements and potential,
- Pre-feasibility studies to provide a project concept and a good budget quote,
- Feasibility Study and Business Plan to provide the basis of investment proposals,
- Search for Investors / Financing,
- Project implementation – Engineering Design & Build, Commissioning and Training.
Detailed Project Stages
Scoping Study – Step 1
The project scoping study identifies the client’s conditions taking into account such factors as:
- Waste availability (type (MSW, commercial, clinical and other hazardous, etc.), CV of wastes and quantities)
- Local policies on waste reduction and recycling and landfilling
- Site size, site conditions and road access
- Access to grid and on site power needs
- Proximity to heat loads and details of load (diurnal and seasonal demands) also considering options for cooling in summer
- Neighbour issues
- Local regulations on emissions and other environmental standards
Deliverables - A report that identifies
- Available information organized in a Project Master File
- The recommended concept and approach to be used for developing the project
Pre-Feasibility Study – Step 2
The pre-feasibility study develops the favoured project concept and may consider alternative concepts for comparison to choose the concept to be used and to provide a budget estimates with a +/- 30% reliability factor and to determine if the project is economically practical. This involves the following:
- detailed definition of the main concept and other options,
- preparation of concept design drawings,
- preparation of outline User Requirement Specifications (URS) for major equipment that will be the basis for budget equipment quotations,
- provide budget estimates for capital and operating costs,
- establish income/financing sources,
- develop full financials for the project (balance sheets, income/expense statements, cash flow, etc.)
Note: The URS will form the basis for obtaining proposals from technology suppliers within the constraints and objectives pertaining to Client’s requirements. The URS will become a component of the contract for supply of the equipment. Please see Attachment Nr 3 for a typical table of contents
of a URS.
Deliverables: A report that
- determines if the project is a “go” or no go”.
- compares the options available and chooses the preferred option,
- provides and order of magnitude budget and indicative returns ,
- provides concept design details.
Feasibility Study / Business Plan – Step 3
The feasibility study further develops the favoured project concept and provides a budget estimates with a +/- 10% reliability factor in order to confirm that the project is economically viable. It is also the basis for the business plan. This involves the following:
- fine-tuning of financial information, receiving competitive quotations,
- some detailed design for major components,
- updating of User Requirement Specifications (URS) for all major equipment that will be the basis for firm equipment quotations,
- update financials for the project
- prepare a business plan
- prepare a prospectus or information memorandum for financing institutions.
- periodic reviews with client confirming that the project is a “go” or no go”.
- concept design details. budget,
- business plan and information for funders.
Financing – Step 4
This stage involves working closely with the client to secure financing for the project by presenting
the project to both local and international financing organizations. This involves the following:
- distributing the prospectus or information memorandum to potential funders,
- addressing questions and concerns,
- modifying project information to suit funder requirements,
- addressing legal issues which may arise.
- client securing project financing
Project Implementation – Step 5
This stage involves the project management of the technical design and construction of the project. This involves the following:
- using the PM-PROformance™ project management system ( http://pm-proformance.com/ ) to get the job done properly.
- commissioned plant,
- trained personnel,
- option to provide plant management over agreed period
- handed over to the owner
