|Client||Joint venture owned by two industrial conglomerates
|Expertise||Owner’s Engineer, Lignite Power Plant, Bankable Feasibility Study
Pakistan relies heavily on imported crude oil, diesel and natural gas with very limited energy coming from coal-fired power plants. Due to the countries move to become energy independent, our client’s aim is to increase the amount of coal use for power generation in order to spur economic development and bring energy security to the country.
The client required certain services in respect of developing a 330 MW coal fired power project. RWE was assigned end of 2016 to provide owner’s engineering and consultancy services during development, procurement, engineering, construction and commissioning of the project.
To support final investment decisions we prepared a bankable feasibility study and assisted our client with tender and procurement of EPC type contract. Our assistance includes in particular tender preparation, bid evaluation, procurement strategy, contract negotiation and administration. As technical advisor we review and monitor the engineering designs and documents of the EPC contractor to ensure compliance with FID requirements. In addition we provide guidance during the FID process. We also support and review O&M contract documents and provide recommendation and assistance during tendering until contract award.
Our management and supervision role during construction works and commissioning includes to review and comment on designs, monitor progress, witness and report on acceptance testing, provide quality assessments, provide regular expert opinions and assist with EPC contractor’s contractual compliance.
As owner’s engineer, we help to achieve commercial operation as part of Pakistan’s energy programme to become energy independent by using domestic coal.
