DNV GL has gained valuable real life experience working with project stakeholders to minimise and mitigate technical risks in wind farm projects. This one day course is aimed at anyone wishing to benefit from this experience, either as general interest or for a background to be used when approaching real life investment reviews. Focusing on cash flow and project finance lending, the course will cover typical technical issues that might arise during the investment review process, and steps that can be taken to reduce or address risks.
The structure will naturally lead the course participants towards a check list of items to be considered and addressed in their own due diligence reviews. Throughout the day, topics will refer back to the project cash flow model and practical exercises.
The course focuses on technical experience, with some coverage of related commercial issues; the course does not however cover detailed legal or insurance issues associated with transaction structuring. It is assumed that course participants will already be familiar with general wind energy related topics, including exceedance cases for wind assessment. The one day course, “Wind Farm Projects” (scheduled on September 2) is recommended for participants not yet familiar with the full project lifecycle.
