During the engineering, procurement and construction phase of your renewable asset or CapEx project it is critical that your contractors are delivering their responsibilities to the required standards. Substandard components or installation can cause plants to fail to meet their performance guarantees, potentially leading to contractual disputes and poor performance of the asset.
To ensure your development is in safe hands, Eco2 can provide a comprehensive Owner’s Engineer package to clients to provide technical oversight of your project and ensure that contractors activities are upholding their responsibilities and adhering to contract requirements.
Our services can be based on site or remotely, or we can tailor a combination to suit the owner’s requirements. Our team bring a wealth of experience of specialising in energy from waste or biomass or any other asset giving the owner the peace of mind and ensure that the work on your plant is delivered to the necessary standards and operates at peak performance.

Members of Eco2's Engineering team has provided Owner’s Engineer support to new build biomass energy from waste and biomass gasification projects.
The role of Owner’s Engineer was undertaken during the construction of an EfW gasification project for a major client to act as their engineer through the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) phase. One half of the EPC joint venture had entered liquidation at the beginning of the project leaving only the civil contractor to complete the build.
The role included oversight of all required contractual obligations and notifications, as well as managing the final six months of construction to reset the project timeline against the programme. As a result, the construction avoided many of the common pitfalls such as fuel suitability, design issues and guidance on the practical operation of the plant.
The plant achieved ROCS against the project deadlines and proved a financially profitable asset for the owner.
