ADVANCED PROJECT FINANCE FOR POWER PROJECTS

25 – 27 OCTOBER 2016, SINGAPORE

About The Course

The course is designed to develop participants’ knowledge and understanding of the analysis and structuring power projects on a basis that is consistent with the ability of the project to support the successful raising of project finance. Existing skills of the participants will be developed to provide a practical toolkit of techniques and approaches to the analysis and structuring of projects aimed at improving the efficiency and rigour of the project financing process.

During the course, you will follow the three foundation stones of project finance involving risk analysis, financial modelling and documentation consistent with a “non-recourse” or “limited recourse” recourse financing approach using practical examples, “real life” case studies and discussions/presentations from the analysis of these examples and case studies.

Learning Outcomes

Participants are expected to have some limited experience of project financing concepts and techniques in the power sector and to be seeking to improve their understanding and knowledge of the approach to risk analysis, the use of financial models and the commercial and financing documentation aspects of power project finance. An EXCEL financial model will be used by participants during the course to illustrate certain aspects of the course. It is therefore recommended that participants have familiarity with and a basic ability to use EXCEL software.

  • Power project developers
  • Lawyers
  • Bankers
  • Technical consultants
  • Construction contractors & power equipment suppliers
  • Government officers involved in power project procurement/power purchasing
