Eco2’s Technical Due Diligence team can offer technical expertise and due diligence on a wide range of renewable technologies, including wind power, energy from waste (biomass and municipal waste), solar and anaerobic digestion.
We can review the design, criteria, Process & Implementation Diagrams and the technology provider itself, including the interface between multiple technology providers which can often be problematic.
We can provide our due diligence service for projects in the design phase, during the EPC phase, or on operational assets prior to purchase, ensuring that your documentation is correct and the facility has met its guarantee criteria.
Having developed several plants, bringing them through the defect/warranty period into full operation, we have seen what can go wrong with new plants and how to rectify those issues. As a result, we know what issues to look for, ensuring you have peace of mind and minimising risk. The breadth of Eco2’s experience means we can give you true peace of mind.
Andrew joined Eco2 Ltd in 2003. He initially managed the implementation of the company’s landfill gas portfolio, comprising four sites with a combined potential capacity of nearly 11 MWe, but later returned to the biomass fold. He led the procurement process for the Western Wood Energy Project, and followed this by securing planning permission for Eco2’s straw project in Sleaford. Following Sleaford, Andrew went on to manage the procurement of turnkey and operating contracts for four other power stations: Brigg, Snetterton, Margam and Port Clarence. He also played a key part in securing the finance for these projects.
More recently, he has focused on delivering asset management services for those plants that are operating across the portfolio. Andrew directs a team of project engineers, fuel managers, transport managers and administrators that ensure reliable and cost-effective supply.
Andrew completed a PhD from Birmingham’s Aston University in which he studied the economics of generating electricity from biomass using various thermal technologies. He followed this by developing a range of biomass and ‘energy from waste’ projects at Energy Power Resources. Andrew moved to Eco2 in 2003 to manage the landfill gas portfolio and now oversees the development of Eco2’s UK Biomass portfolio.Meet the team
Eco2's Engineering team have a wide range of experience, including undertaking technical due diligence for a client prior to purchase of an energy from waste facility.
The process required a full internal inspection of the main components of the plant for condition analysis such as the boiler, grate, horizontal passes, filter bag house and water treatment plant. The computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) was also interrogated to verify that maintenance records were fit for purpose and extensive.
The review included regulatory compliance, maintenance and performance records, building services condition and preventative maintenance measures that have been carried out such as condition monitoring, and a full condition report for the facility that highlighted areas that may require investment over the life cycle of the facility.
