Ensure your project’s technical, financial, legal and sustainable viability

WHAT IS Feasibility Study & Planning?

For an investor, financial institution or a project owner, understanding, identifying and mitigating the concerns that may jeopardise the viability of the project are critical aspects that need to be addressed at the project planning stage. While one needs to look at investments, ROI, project commissioning timelines and long-term operational aspects of a plant, one also needs to understand and be prepared for the evolving market dynamics, ever changing regulatory environment, sustainability aspect and cost pressures.

Once the stakeholders have the accurate information to make the informed decision and re-align the project requirements if required, the next critical task is identification of qualified reliable partners/vendors for proper planning and timely execution through Feasibility Study & Planning.

Why is feasibility study & planning important?

The feasibility study helps to seek clarity on questions like what, why, when, where and who. It provides critical information regarding viability of project from financial, technical, legal and operational aspects, thus assisting stakeholders to make an informed decision. This detailed information helps the stakeholders to mitigate risks and uncertainties at the planning stage ensuring a well-designed, planned and timely executed project supported by qualified partners /vendors.
