The Project

In preparation for the UK's deregulated power generation market, ESB International provided a project model for one of the UK's first independent power producers (IPP's).

Our Approach

  • The Challenge

    Designing and implementing a commercially successful IPP (Independent Power Producer) model to operate in a newly liberalised power generation market.

  • The Solution

    Planning, development, financial and operational resourcing, leading to successful Operations and Maintenance (O&M) for one of the first IPP’s to enter service in the UK market, a plant still in service nearly 30 years later.

The Results
