K&M was engaged by the Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector (ICD) to assist a private project developer with a detailed feasibility study for a 200 MW gas-fired combined cycle power project in Côte d’Ivoire. The project would be developed under an Independent Power Producer (IPP) arrangement. K&M visited the project site, reviewed the conceptual design and layout of the plant, assessed the technology chosen, and evaluated equipment supplier options for all major components of the project. K&M also reviewed all draft project agreements (including the EPC contract, PPA, and Fuel Supply Agreement) to ensure that they were technically consistent and adequate given the technical specifications and operating characteristics of the proposed facility. K&M recommended how much contingent financing should be required to cover possible construction cost overruns, and evaluated the plant’s forecast operations and maintenance schedule. In addition to the technical feasibility assessment, K&M conducted an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) of the project which met the requirements of the Government’s environmental protection authority.
