Developing high quality assets
We have a relentless dedication towards maintaining high development and operating standards for our assets, ensuring operational excellence across our portfolio.
Led by a management team with a strong and successful background in energy development, we approach the development of our projects in a disciplined and selective manner, with a keen eye on detailed technical and feasibility studies, ESG considerations and community engagement.
A process built for quality

In the first step in a project’s lifecycle, we focus our initial efforts on country wide assessments to identify key risks, prospective project sites and better understand the local market’s unique attributes. Depending on the entry strategy that we pursue, we may also consider an assessment of potential local partners to enter the market. Examples of key activities include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Site visits
  2. Community engagement
  3. Prefeasibility reports
  4. Site exclusivity / survey license
  5. Wind mast installation
  1. Local partner(s) identification & KYC checks completed
  2. Preliminary business case analysis

Once suitable project sites have been identified for further assessment, we focus our development efforts on evaluating a potential project’s technical and financial viabilities, as well as identifying any potential red flags and formulating potential mitigating actions if possible.

Only projects that prove to be economically viable and are without any unaddressable red flag issues will be further developed, with late-stage development efforts focused on finalizing project layouts, securing offtake and financing agreements, community engagement, and acquiring land.

This two phase approach towards project development allows us to confirm a potential asset’s economic potential and lack of any major risks first before proceeding with later stage and more expensive development activities, allowing us to prudently manage our development capital-at-risk and minimize potential losses from projects that are written off.

Examples of key activities include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Evacuation load flow
  2. Grid connection approval
  3. Master plan inclusion
  4. Final feasibility reports
  1. Local partner engagement
  2. Land / sea secured / conflict free
  3. Compliance with licenses, permits, regulations and international standards
  4. Deal structure and taxation
  5. Exchange rate mitigation
  6. Debt strategy
Project finance

As projects begin advancing into late-stage development, our project development teams would begin preparing project dossiers in anticipation of efforts to reach out to local and international lenders to secure project financing.

This typically requires the completion of certain key activities which include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Land, pathways and ROW documentation as per IFC standards
  2. ESIA noise / shadow flicker analysis and mitigation as per IFC standards
  1. PPA
  2. EPC and O&M agreements
  3. Debt agreements

For projects that successfully complete their development, we aim to collaborate with our strategic OEM and banking partners to procure the equipment and financing necessary to construct our project and bring it into operation.

With our engineering expertise, we play an active role in the construction of our projects, maintaining direct oversight of all activities that are carried out by our OEM partners and their contractors, ensuring that they are built and commissioned in accordance with the highest standards in the industry.

Examples of key activities include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Construction permit
  2. Civil roads and foundations
  3. Electrical Balance of Plant
  4. WTG supply and erection
  5. Project commissioning
  6. Operation permit
  7. O&M and asset management
  1. Land compensation
Asset management

Leveraging on our technical team’s and Actis’ expertise and past experience, we have developed an operational improvement toolkit that aggregates our collective experience together with the latest insights and innovations to create a framework for operational improvements to enhance the performance of our projects.

We will continuously monitor the performance of our assets, identifying shortfalls where they exist and enacting measures to improve their performance, which include but are not limited to:

  1. Improving generation performance
  2. Reducing energy losses
  3. Repowering
  4. Optimizing operating and financing costs
