A project starts with a need that has to be fulfilled for a clearly defined customer or Project Owner in project speak. Below we walk you through a typical biogas project framework;
STAGE 1 : INITIAL CUSTOMER INTERACTION
Customer will be asked to supply a detailed project write-up and to share their own work as a benchmark. At this stage limited testing may be required and these cost to be borne by customer.
STAGE 2 : DESKTOP STUDY
The desktop study is done at risk for qualifying projects. A qualifying project is one that is adopted by one of our team who sees sufficient merit to become its project driver.
The output level of the proceeding stages is that of Business Case, i.e. establishment of an “order of magnitude” budget with limited architecture development.
STAGE 3 : WORK PACKAGE 1 - Project Architecture & Feasibility
The focus of Work Package 1 is the development and refinement of the Project Architecture, a unique sustainable solution. Outputs include detailed costing, risk analysis and financial viability.
The output level of stage 3 is that of Prefeasibility.
STAGE 4 : WORK PACKAGE 2 – Appointment of an Environmental Practitioner
Obtaining the necessary environmental permissions & permits may be a long lead-time item whilst impacting on design considerations.
STAGE 5 : WORK PACKAGE 3 – Engineering Development
The focus is on risk reduction & mitigation.
The output level of this stage is that of Feasibility level.
STAGE 6 : FINAL CONTRACT NEGOTIATION
STAGE 7 : IMPLEMENTATION
WORK PACKAGE 4 – Implementation Engineering
WORK PACKAGE 5 – Construction
The output level of this stage is a complete plant.
STAGE 8 : Start-up & Handover
WORK PACKAGE 6 – Start-up
