Contracting and Execution Support

Project developers face ever-changing regulatory, environmental, and technical constraints unique to each project. The slightest delay thanks to any of these limitations can ultimately undermine the financial viability of a project. We make sure this does not happen to our clients. At Phoventus, we ensure projects are designed to factor in these constraints, with risk-mitigation strategies designed-in from the start so that project plans can move through the planning/permitting process smoothly, without delay, and with the best possible chance of approval to proceed.

We employ our broad experience in development stage projects to ensure our clients’ development budgets are being spent in the right places to de-risk and advance their projects.

Our services include:

  • Environmental constraints assessment, environmental impact assessments and permitting (including government, public and Indigenous consultation)
  • Energy yield assessment
  • Preliminary engineering, design, and studies
  • Capital and operational cost budgeting
  • Support on interconnection application and geotechnical investigation

At Phoventus, our mission is excellence in advisory and engineering services to the renewable energy, electrification, and hybrid power markets. We provide value-added strategic management, engineering, and environmental consulting and advisory services to power clients of every type, mission, and purpose around the world.
