Business Description

Support for Biomass Energy Introduction and Operation

We provide the highly specialized and practical third-party assessments needed to structure project finance. Even after structuring, we assist in the long-term and stable operation of biomass energy projects through verifications of construction conditions, completion checks, and periodic inspection reviews.

Markets and Trends

Unlike other power sources, for which the amount of power generated is largely determined by the location and natural conditions (such as wind power and sunlight), the amount of power generated from biomass is affected by various factors, such as the equipment and fuel used and operation and maintenance, etc. Consequently, biomass risk assessment covers a broad range of techinical aspects. Biomass energy also has a slightly larger environmental impact in terms of exhaust, noise, and the like compared to other renewable energy sources.
01
Technical Due Diligence
Technical due diligence is largely divided into four stages: before conclusion of financing contract (Stage 1), during construction (Stage 2), at the completion of construction (Stage 3), and after the start of commercial operation (Stage 4). We provide the third-party reviews needed at each stage, from development to operation. We also offer services on the specific stages and contents required for small-scale biomass energy projects.
Service Examples
Risk assessment covering technical and environmental aspects of the project plan before the conclusion of the financing contract (Stage 1)
Progress monitoring of construction/validity assessment of process and work changes during construction (Stage 2)
Verification of equipment completion and performance at the completion of construction (Stage 3)
Periodic inspection reviews after the start of commercial operation (Stage 4)
Project Finance
This is financing that provides loans to specific projects. It limits the capital used for repayment to the cash flow generated from the project. It also limits collateral to assets and rights connected with the project. Unlike corporate finance, which relies on the sponsor’s creditworthiness, project finance is based on a non-recourse approach whereby the obligation for repayment does not extend to the sponsor. Consequently, financial institutions require a highly specialized third-party assessment of risks that could adversely affect project continuation and cash flow when structuring project finance.
02
Domestic fuel procurement feasibility studies
In the case of imported biomass fuel, it is common to conclude a long-term supply contract with a fixed supply quantity and price, to guarantee the quality of the fuel. However, when it comes to domestic materials, simply concluding a contract can be difficult. Through domestic fuel procurement feasibility studies, we assess from a third-party perspective whether or not biomass energy projects can reliably procure their planned biomass volume over the long term based on reviews of forestry statistics and interviews with concerned local organizations and persons.
