We actively develop and invest in a wide-range of plants producing energy from solar radiation, water, wind, biomass, biogas. We execute and manage projects in the fields of municipal and industrial waste utilization, gas generation and passive houses.
We aim to help our clients achieve their goals in order to maximize the benefits.
We help our clients’ businesses become more energy efficient, energy sustainable and cost effective.
The experience and expertise of our company gives us the energy and potential to assist our clients in every step in the development and realization of their renewable energy projects.
Helios Power is helping the clients to experience the positive effects from optimizing efficiency and sustainability through the use of renewable energy. In order to maximize the benefits of a renewable energy project, the investor should determine a feasible outlook for renewable energy performance, develop strategies for using the renewables to meet the goals of the project, design and construct th most appropriate renewable energy system and implement a successful project.
We offer end-to-end management of projects including site selection, feasibility study, structuring of the business, design and construction and operation and maintenance. We also offer assistance in insuring project financing.
The first step in developing a renewable energy project is to find a suitable site and assess its feasibility for development. We are helping the clients to find the most suitable site and to analyze the obstacles or challenges that might affect the development of the project in order to objectively assess the options and manage the development risks.
We make preliminary analysis of the energy resource, distance to transmission, potential set-backs, known environmental limitations, and other important siting factors and provide clients with development opportunities.
A feasibility study is necessary to weigh all of the potential risks and rewards in developing a project. It includes:
• Potential for energy generation on site
• Risks associated with the project
• Preliminary layout and energy production estimate
• Technical feasibility and technology options
• Region and country-specific assessments of financial incentives & regulations
• Potential environmental concerns such as visual and noise impact and threats to endangered species
• Regulatory requirements and challenges
• Interconnection options
• Operational costs assessment
• Technology design and cost calculations
• Projected payback on the project
We are assisting the client to structure its whole project including the organization of the business itself. This includes designing the most appropriate structure of the business model, planning of how the project will be developed and business plan elaboration.
Helios Power has the resources to organize the project development, project management, engineering, procurement and construction services (EPC) of the renewable energy plant.
We are starting with the project development where we make planning of executive activities for different phases, designing the systems and technologies, choosing the subcontractors and estimating the costs. We also help with the preparation of planning permission documents for compliance with authority regulations.
The next phase is the project management where we do commissioning of the construction of the plant, organize the integration of systems and integration of partners, coordinate subcontractors and consultants to achieve the goals of the projects, see to the execution of the time schedule and cost control.
Helios Power is making the supervision of all design, procurement, installation and commissioning of the equipment during execution and guarantee periods of the projects. We aim at assuring trouble-free installation and high efficiency in order to help the project investors obtaining highest possible performance and profitability of the investment.
With the implementation and start-up the project execution is finished and the project moves from the construction to the operation phase. During the implementation initial and primary acceptance dynamic tests are made. Guarantee performance tests to validate the construction integrity and confirm that the facilities are delivered in a safe, reliable and operational condition for a complete customer satisfaction are made, too. We offer our clients with operation training, maintenance and technology expertise.
Helios power provides assistance in the operation and maintenance of the RES systems. This includes the monitoring of the systems’ performance and reporting. With the 24/7 monitoring process we are able to minimize system interruptions in order to increase the reliability of the RES system thus ensuring optimum yields.
We also provide preventive maintenance, as well as corrective maintenance and troubleshooting. This includes maintenance planning, preventive activities, emergency repairs, major repairs, optimization system repairs. Maintenance intervals are negotiated in advance.
Helios Power has the ability to help the clients in financing the project realization. We can assist in planning the financial engineering, finding financial sources such as bank loans, private investments, grants, subsidies. We support the client in the document preparation and negotiating with financial institutions and other investors.
