Impact assessments seek to ensure that the environmental effects of major projects and development proposals are fully investigated, understood and taken into account before decisions are made on whether they should proceed.
Enviko can provide advice on the impacts of your project or development on the environment. The assessment includes all of the stages of your project from site investigations to construction to operation to monitoring. Construction impacts apply predominantly to wind and solar installations.
Wind – There are many potential impacts of constructing a wind farm, including issues of noise, cultural heritage, environment and visibility. From the early planning stages of wind farm development through to detailed technical and operational assessments, we provide support to enable successful implementation.
Solar – The primary purpose of a construction impact assessment is to identify constraints to development and indicate how these can be overcome. Environmental Impact Assessments must meet the standards of the government and EU. These assessments can play a vital part in your decision-making process – offering clear information about a solar project and its effects.
Rigorously applied and combined with site selection and design, it can provide an early understanding of the potential impact of any planned project.
Turbine procurement is one of the most important aspects of a wind energy development. Turbines may represent up to 80% of the capital cost of a wind farm and their reliability and long-term power output are crucial to the financial performance of the project.
It is important to secure not only an acceptable price, but also the right guarantees, delivery and performance bonds and specific guarantees on aspects of performance governed by planning conditions, such as noise.
We have long-standing contacts with all the major manufacturers. Acting on behalf of owners, investors and banks, Enviko draws on years of experience to offer a comprehensive array of commercial and management services.
Whether planning, acquiring, operating, re-powering or selling a wind farm, Enviko can offer clients a range of skills and experience – from essential project services such as due diligence, through to adding value by way of project lifetime support.
