Understanding Contractor Costing in the International Power Generation Industry

25th November 2019 - 27th November 2019


As global demand for power generation continues to grow, there is a growing shift in both the pricing and costing methodologies employed by turnkey contractors. This is largely due to the client wishing to ensure that all (or most) of the risk exposure is to be borne by the main contractor. In response to this EPC contractors have adjusted the costings of their offerings in an attempt to have project budget to deal with these risks should they manifest. This course has been designed to be an immersive experience, with emphasis on problem solving and open dialogue. Many of the underpinning issues that are reflected in project costs are examined – for example, issues such as pollution control and emissions compliance; turbulent market conditions and price escalations in key raw materials.
