    • Support during the auction;
    • Post-auction support including assistance with power purchase agreement signing and related documentation;
    • Operational and interconnection authorizations.

  • Elementos offers comprehensive analyses and customized studies for the energy market investor. The following are some topics of interest:

    • Analysis of the equipment manufacturer, EPC and subcontractor markets.
    • How the auctions work: structure and results analysis
    • Map of wind energy market participants;
    • Wind turbine and solar module suppliers in Brazil;
    • Map of the principal regulatory agencies in Brazil and project permitting path;
    • Free market energy transactions.

  • Elementos’ due diligence services assist potential investors to evaluate a Project’s attractiveness, examining all documentation and major areas of project development and planning, including:

  • Our inspection services span factories located around the globe as well as at the project site to ensure that the project meets the performance and schedule requirements of the client. The inspection may reveal technical issues that can affect the project schedule.

    To ensure the highest quality of component production, we make regular visits to production facilities. This quality control program begins with a pre-production meeting to establish the inspection scope and the test plan for the relevant components.. We carry out a detailed review of the factory’s quality control procedures, in addition to our standard inspection procedures.

  • We offer a special focus on certain technical points in the due diligence of a project, identifying areas that can significantly affect project cost and/or schedule.

    The following are some examples:

    Wind Turbine Storage: With significant experience in wind turbine storage (both in “free wheel” as well as when dismounted), we review the preservation steps that have been taken for wind turbines in transit or in
    storage. We also have the ability to analyse documentation relative to factory production,transportation, erection and commissioning to identify potential problems.

    Transportation study: We trace the project component supply route from the factory, to the port, and then along the roads that lead to the project, identifying potential obstacles, structural issues and/or permitting needs.

    Insurance: We identify possible “gaps” in insurance coverage that may affect the project.

  • Pro-active involvement during the pre-construction phase can significantly improve project planning, function, and economics. Behind our approach to pre-construction lies the many years of experience of our partners, guaranteeing excellence in our work. This planning includes:

    • Review of Preliminary and Final Project Design Documents
    • Cost formation review
    • Constructability review
    • Physical-financial timeline
    • WBS (Work Breakdown Structure)
    • Local logistical planning
    • Construction sequencing
    • Pre-qualification of subcontractors
    • Turbine supplier selection
    • EPC/BOP supplier selection

  • We work with the project owner, partners, engineering, and equipment and service suppliers, to achieve maximum benefit for all involved.

    • Construction Planning
    • Construction Supervision
    • Insurance Management
    • Procurement and Contracting
