Project: Develop Financial and Technical Model.
We were engaged to develop a bespoke technical and financial model of a gas-fired generating plant model to:
- Simulate anticipated revenue from Power Purchase Agreements and compute required tariff (capacity and energy) to achieve a target regulated return.
- Analyse the impacts of alternative technical configurations on expected returns (alternative manufacturers, multiple units, open- or closed-cycle).
- Optimise the existing project model to meet a particular tariff by varying a small number of identified inputs, in a form that can be used for negotiation with NBET.
- Allow prospective lenders, investors and risk mitigation agencies to analyse the revenue, CAPEX and OPEX to support any decision to participate in the project.
