Audit of energy projects in Ukraine

For those cases where it is necessary to make a decision on launch of the project or its further implementation IKNET Company offers the investor to conduct a comprehensive audit.

Saying the Project we mean a business idea in various stages of implementation, or/and energy facilities that have not been fully constructed or commissioned.

AUDIT OF THE ALTERNATIVE ENERGY PROJECTS

During a comprehensive audit of the alternative energy projects IKNET Company performs the following tasks:

  • Analysis of the existing documents:

    a study of available documentation (initial data, specifications, designs, etc.) for their adequacy and content.
  • Land lot survey:
    Collection of the initial data for land lot (which are required for the preliminary analysis of the project); implementation of topo-geodetic surveys.
  • Analysis of the legal framework:

    Determination of the feasibility of the project in accordance with the applicable law.
  • Analysis of the existing power supply grids:
    - identification of possible variants for connection to external power grids (at least three options);
    - calculation of the cost of connection to external power grids;
    - determination of the best option for connection.
  • Analysis of heat supply networks:

    - identification of the nearest heat consumers and their demand for heat;
    - determination and analysis of possible circuits for thermal energy distribution;
    - calculation of the implementation cost of circuit for thermal energy distribution.
  • Analysis of the alternative energy source potential:
    - analysis of the alternative energy source potential (wind rose, solar activity, the quantity and quality of biomass and biogas);
    - determination of the maximum capacity of power and / or thermal power plant.
  • Selection of the main equipment:

    - data collection from the manufacturers and suppliers of the main equipment (technical specifications, price, delivery terms, warranty and so on);
    - analysis of the options for main equipment and selection of the best option.

AUDIT OF THE CONVENTIONAL ENERGY PROJECTS

During a comprehensive audit of the conventional energy projects IKNET Company performs the following tasks:

  • Analysis of the existing documents:

    study of the available documentation (initial data, specifications, designs, etc.) for their adequacy and content.
  • Land lot survey:

    Collection of the initial data for land lot, which are required for the preliminary analysis of the project; implementation of topo-geodetic surveys.
  • Analysis of the legal framework:

    Determination of the feasibility of the project in accordance with the applicable law.
  • Analysis of the existing power supply grids:
    - identification of possible variants for connection to external power grids (at least three options);
    - calculation of the cost of connection to external power grids;
    - determination of the best option for connection.
  • Analysis of heat supply networks:

    - identification and analysis of possible options for heating;
    - calculation of the implementation cost for every specific heat supply option;
    - determination of the best heating option.
  • Analysis of the external gas supply:

    - hydraulic calculation for selection of the pipes with required cross-section and necessary equipment for connection to an external gas networks;
    - calculation of the cost of connection to external gas networks.
  • Investigation of possible water supply:
    - hydrogeological study of possible ways for water supply to the facility (description of the characteristics of the aquifer, including the Jurassic aquifer with indicative characteristics of the chemical composition of water, determination of the geological structure and geostructural characteristics of the Customer’s land lot);
    - calculation of the projected costs for production of drinking and industrial water.
  • Development of drainage system:

    - development of technical solutions of drainage system, determination of the optimal location of local treatment facilities;
    - calculation of the estimated cost of the drainage system.

As a result of the audit, the best options for connection of the facility to external networks, project implementation budget, estimated period of implementation and forecasted commissioning time as well as identified possible risks are determined.

Thus, after receiving the audit results the Customer has all the initial data for development of an appropriate concept for project implementation.
