Capital planning
Capital planning

Capital planning

  • Assess 10x (or more!) options for existing and new assets in order to find the optimal design to meet your objectives for CAPEX, OPEX, Carbon Footprint, and more.
  • Streamline the price review process and kick-start approved projects by generating complete engineering design packages for brownfield (including upgrades) or greenfield projects.
  • Automatically generate designs for existing sites and assets to improve asset management efforts, including Digital Twin baselines.
  • Repurpose spend with 3rd party engineering firms and consultants to deliver more of the value you need.
Optimize

Lower Project Development Costs and Optimize Return on Invested Capital

  • Reduce costs of developing and bidding on new concessions/asset pools.
  • Create feasibility studies in-house and save on 3rd party engineering costs.
  • Improve your ROIC on new builds and upgrades by evaluating more technologies and options, and reviewing more accurate designs at an earlier project stage.
  • Determine more accurate CAPEX/ OPEX budgets and “future proof” designs by ensuring compliance w/ anticipated regulatory or climate-driven changes.

Tender Specification

  • Leverage TDG to automatically generate tender specifications based on what is best for your assets and community.
  • Evaluate the most cost-effective design options before the tender launches.
  • Ensure the project delivers on your objectives by generating multiple design options and leveraging 3rd party designers to evaluate the best alternative.
Sustainable

Achieve sustainability metrics

  • Rapidly evaluate multiple options and design alternatives to maximize the sustainability of your asset base.
  • Include more innovative technologies in your long-term capital planning in order to increase efficiency and reduce carbon footprint.
