The sessions will include critical discussions on renewable energy project finance, cycle optimization, material procurement, construction operations maintenance, cost savings strategies, and project development challenges, as well as a case study on molten salt storage.
Broadlands was the owner’s choice to provide owner’s representative services and project controls for the largest Concentrating Solar Trough Power Plant built in the world in over 20 years – the 64 MW Nevada Solar One.
Broadlands was also the owner’s choice to provide owner’s representation on the 10.5 MW photovoltaic plant, PA Solar Park I and post construction cost analysis and best practice construction strategies on a 5 MW CSP tower project. In addition, Broadlands was chosen as the owner’s representative on the first CSP plant being built under India’s new national tariff program and as the strategic consultant on a 100 MW wind initiative for a major government authority. Broadlands’ professionals further bring diverse energy project experience to the company, including nuclear and biomass. And, the company employs personnel that worked on the design of the Luz SEGS VIII and IX 80 MW projects as well as modifications and plant improvements made on the SEGS 30 MW units.
"We have a proven approach to decrease development costs, mitigate construction risk and drive on time project completion of solar plants, especially concentrating solar," Mr. Fortay added.
