Modern Energy Management (MEM), a specialist in delivering project lifecycle certainty to renewable energy developers, financiers, and investors, will carry out marine warranty surveying (MWS) services at Indonesia’s first utility-scale wind project on behalf of GCube Underwriting. Under the terms of the agreement, MEM will provide risk-management services related to the offloading of turbine generator components for the 75-MW Sidrap Wind Farm.
GCube selected MEM for this work ahead of local survey companies due to the firm’s clean energy focus and expertise in the emerging Asian renewable energy markets. A key factor in the decision was ensuring the necessary depth of experience to comprehensively assess on-site and logistical risks, and prevent these leading to project delays.
While this process takes place, wind developers require the confidence of a secure and comprehensive marine warranty service to ensure that large parts and components arrive at the project site undamaged and on time.
The site’s remote and challenging landscape poses unique logistical challenges for the construction team and will require components to be offloaded at a jetty specially-constructed for the project. MEM will oversee the components’ offloading before they are transported to the project site itself.
