Power Generation and IPP Scoping Study Definitional Mission
The EBRD engaged K&M to provide the services of a senior financial and technical team to visit Warsaw, Poland, to review potential energy and power sector projects which might qualify for EBRD financial support. This team reviewed and assessed the current technical and operations status and environmental performance of several power plants; analyzed the feasibility of the proposed projects with special emphasis on improvement of environmental performance; advised EBRD on various technical aspects, and assisted in the preparation of necessary EBRD documents, such as mission reports, project appraisal concerning the project.
K&M assessed the feasibility of controlling the Landfill Gas (LFG) emitted from the landfill by installing an LFG collection system. The LFG could then be used as fuel, perhaps with on-site electricity generation. K&M’s report analyzed the amount of LFG available for recovery, made recommendations on design and operations, made observations concerning unusual and operational parameters, and concluded that development of an LFG recovery project was feasible at the Radom Landfill.
K&M completed a technical, environmental and commercial due diligence for the proposed rehabilitation of the coal-fired 502 MWth / 175 MWe Energia Lublin combined heat and power plant (CHP) at Lublin. K&M’s technical due diligence covered a review of major plant components and drawings supplied in the independent engineering assessment. K&M’s environmental due diligence assessed environmental justification, existing licenses, compliance components, remediation plans, reporting and testing requirements, impact of air protection, surface and ground water protection, solid waste management and noise protection. K&M’s commercial due diligence included reviewing proposed joint venture investment plan, offtakers, risk mitigation factors, tariffs, and financial model and cash flows.
