Advising On Country And Infrastructure Risks For Cogeneration Facility In Africa

Overview:

A Japanese engineering firm wanted to introduce an anhydrous cogeneration facility in sub-Saharan Africa. Core Consultants was called to evaluate the potential for six countries.

 

Methodology:

The report took the form of a desk-top study.  Core Consultants evaluated the potential for each industry that could possibly become a viable end-user of the product. This was balanced against the potential costs of setting up the cogeneration facility.

 

Our Recommendation:

The product was too costly on a per kWh basis for the sub-Saharan African markets. Moreover, the scale of those industries that it would potentially service would not have been adequately developed by the time cogeneration facility was implemented.

 

Outcome:

The company decided not to market the facility in sub-Saharan Africa.
