Managing International EPC Contracts in the Global Power Industry Masterclass

Learn the key components and their interactions of EPC contracts and overcome project management issues for successful delivery in the global power industry emissions in this managing international EPC contracts course.

About the Course

The increasing demand for energy has led to an intensification of competition – not only between organisations within the same sector (i.e. coal power generation) but also from the growing alternative-energy markets. The rise of ‘clean’ energy generation has led to a concerted yet diverse technological development within fields such as wind, tidal and solar power-generation facilities.

Given these factors, organisations seek different ways in which to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage relevant to one another. One such strategy has been to adopt a form of ‘risk transfer’ via outsourcing to make another party the ‘bearer’ of risk – i.e. appointing a contractor company that offers a ‘one-stop shop’ solution. The contractor company undertakes the whole scope of the project, becoming the main contractor and subsequently managing the entire range of subcontractor agreements to ensure that the deliverable in question is met in its entirety for the client/end user.

These types of contracts are often referred to as EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) contracts, also known as ‘turnkey’ contracts. Learning how to manage international EPC contracts for the power industry is crucial knowledge for anyone interested in entering into an EPC contract.

If the contract can be executed successfully, the contractor stands to benefit, but if there are problems and delays, the contractor may find themselves liable for bearing the costs. Unfortunately, given the scale and scope of this type of commercial contracts and the often complex project management challenges associated with them, there is a significant likelihood that most of the ambit of contractual and operational misfortune in terms of breach, delay, quality issues, HSE compliance, and local content issues (to name but a few) will manifest at some point during the project’s lifetime.

The managing international EPC contracts in the global power industry masterclass will furnish participants with a thorough understanding of the key components (and their interactions) of an EPC contract and focus on the key project management issues one must resolve for successful project delivery. Particular attention is given to open dialogue and collective problem-solving relative to case examples and class exercises. This managing international EPC contracts course has been designed to provide an immersive, value-adding experience.
