Waste development feasibility and due diligence services
Clear independent technical and project investment advice can reduce your investment risk, identify areas for cost and investment savings, and resolve issues to maximise the likelihood of project success.
At WRM we provide you with independent, detailed and reliable advice that helps appraise the technical feasibility and financial viability of new investment opportunities. We have extensive experience in assessing the feasibility of waste and renewable energy projects for investors and lenders including private equity funds, high street commercial banks, and multi-national investment banks.
The SRF drying/waste wood development is an important initiative for Wastecycle and therefore it was important that we made the right decisions based on factual information following robust due diligence of the technology providers. We are satisfied that WRM provided us with the confidence to make the right investment decision on the project.
Our feasibility assessment service offering
A feasibility study is an early stage assessment of a project. It examines whether the project can be practically and successfully delivered and scopes out the required components so that a financial model and risk assessment can be undertaken. Feasibility can be explored from a general project, technical, cost and/or financial perspective, among others. The level of feasibility required is proportionate to the scale and complexity of the project and an initial outline feasibility study can lead to a more detailed business case where required.
Whatever your waste or renewables project, we can tailor our feasibility assessment services to your needs:
- Site location suitability including access to services and grid connections and the obtaining of required consents.
- Technical assessment of technology options and feedstocks.
- Mass balance modelling.
- Risk assessment, apportionment and mitigation options.
- EBITDA financial assessment.
- Market assessment for feedstocks and offtakes.
