AND SPECIFY YOUR TYPE OF MODEL. YOU MAY ALSO INCLUDE IN YOUR EMAIL YOUR SAMPLE INPUTS SO I CAN IMMEDIATELY CUSTOMIZE YOUR MODEL FOR FREE.

=============================================

This is a special offer for the entire year of 2018. For the price of a deterministic model, you get a free copy of a stochastic model.

Our company (OMT Energy Enterprises) can also provide customization services to provide you with power plant project finance models with fixed inputs (deterministic models) as well as random inputs (stochastic models).

If you have an existing model which you want to be audited or upgraded to have stochastic modeling capability, you may also avail of our services at an hourly rate of USD200 per hour for a maximum of 5 hours of charge for customization services.

Use the deterministic model to determine project feasibility, e.g. given first year tariff, determine the equity and project returns (NPV, IRR, PAYBACK), or given the equity or project target returns, determine the first year tariff.

Use the stochastic model to determine project risks during the project development stage. By varying the estimation error on the independent variable (+10% and -10%) and conducting 1,000 random trials, this model will show the upper limit of the estimation error so that the dependent variables will converge to a real value (no error).

A pre-feasibility study has a +/- 15-20% estimation error on the independent variables using rule-of-thumb values.

A detailed feasibility study has a +/- 10-15% estimation error on the independent variables using reasonable estimates guided by internet research on suppliers of equipment.

A final bankable feasibility study has a +/- 5-10% estimation error on the independent variables using EPC contractor and OEM supplier bids.

In the case of fuel oil (bunker) genset, for instance, the estimation error on the independent variables should be less than +3% and -3% so that the dependent variables will converge to a real value.

The model inputs consist of the fixed inputs (independent variables) plus a random component as shown below (based on +/- 10% range, which you can edit in the Sensitivity worksheet):

1) Plant availability factor (% of time) = 94.52% x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

2) Fuel heating value (GHV) = 5,198 Btu/lb x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

3) Plant capacity per unit = 12.00 MW/unit x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

4) Variable O&M cost (at 5.26 $/MWh) = 30.05 $000/MW/year x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

5) Fixed O&M cost (at 105.63 $/kW/year) = 1,227.64 $000/unit/year x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

6) Fixed G&A cost = 10.00 $000/year x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

7) Cost of fuel = 1.299 PHP/kg x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

8) Plant heat rate = 12,186 Btu/kWh x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

9) Exchange rate = 43.00 PHP/USD x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

10) Capital cost = 1,935 $/kW x ( 90% + (110% – 90%) * RAND() )

The dependent variables that will be simulated using Monte Carlo Simulation and which a distribution curve (when you make bold font the number of random trials) may be generated are as follows:

1) Equity Returns (NPV, IRR, PAYBACK) at 30% equity, 70% debt

2) Project Returns (NPV, IRR, PAYBACK) at 100% equity, 0% debt

3) Net Profit After Tax

4) Pre-Tax WACC

5) Electricity Tariff (Feed-in-Tariff)

The following deterministic (fixed inputs) and stochastic (random inputs using Monte Carlo Simulation) models may be downloaded for only USD1,400.

Before you can run the MCS model, you need to download first the Monte Carlo Simulation add-in and run it before running the MCS model:

MonteCarlito_v1_10

The models for renewable, conventional, fossil, nuclear, energy storage, and combined heat and power (CHP) project finance models are based on a single template so that you can prioritize which power generation technology to apply in a given application for more detailed design and economic study.

The models below are in Philippine Pesos (PHP) and may be converted to any foreign currency by inputting the appropriate exchange rate (e.g. 1 USD = 1.0000 USD; 1 USD = 50.000 PHP, 1 USD = 3.800 MYR, etc.). Then do a global replacement in all worksheets of ‘PHP’ with ‘XXX’, where ‘XXX’ is the foreign currency of the model.

How to use the advanced (regulator) petcoke-fired SUBCRITICAL power plant project finance model

Finding an easy-to-use project finance model for a petcoke-fired SUBCRITICAL power plant with built-in data is sometimes difficult as some models don’t have the sophistication of a regulator template model as well as the ease of using the model and viewing immediately the results of a sensitivity change in the inputs to the model.

This is now made easy because the Input & Assumptions worksheet (tab) has combined all the input and output information in a single worksheet and placing the reports in other worksheets such as Tariff Breakdown, Construction Period, Operating Period, Financial Reports and Levelized Tariff.

Following is a sample case study on a petcoke-fired SUBCRITICAL power plant. From the preliminary design and cost estimates, the top management would want to know if the business idea of going into petcoke-fired SUBCRITICAL power development, construction and operation is worth the effort – is it feasible and what are the economic and financial returns for risking capital.

How to use the advanced (regulator) natural gas OCGT power plant project finance model

Finding an easy-to-use project finance model for a natural gas OCGT (open cycle gas turbine, also known as simple cycle gas turbine) power plant with built-in data is sometimes difficult as some models don’t have the sophistication of a regulator template model as well as the ease of using the model and viewing immediately the results of a sensitivity change in the inputs to the model.

This is now made easy because the Input & Assumptions worksheet (tab) has combined all the input and output information in a single worksheet and placing the reports in other worksheets such as Tariff Breakdown, Construction Period, Operating Period, Financial Reports and Levelized Tariff.

Following is a sample case study on a natural gas OCGT power plant. From the preliminary design and cost estimates, the top management would want to know if the business idea of going into natural gas OCGT power development, construction and operation is worth the effort – is it feasible and what are the economic and financial returns for risking capital.

Here are the inputs and outputs of the advanced template model from OMT ENERGY ENTERPRISES:

——————————————————————————————-

Here are the summary of inputs:

all-in capital cost (overnight cost) = 973 $/kW (target cost)

fixed O&M cost = 7.34 $/kW/year (target cost) = 474.49 ‘000$/unit/year (computed by goal seek)

variable O&M cost = 15.45 $/MWh (target cost) = 40.44 ‘000$/MW/year (computed by goal seek)

general admin cost = 10.00 ‘000$/year (target cost)

 

Thermal power plant inputs:

Gross heating value of natural gas OCGT fuel = 22,129 Btu/lb

Plant heat rate = 10,850 Btu/kWh (31.45% thermal efficiency)

Cost of fuel per mmBtu = 9.103 $/mmBtu

How to use the advanced (regulator) natural gas CCGT power plant project finance model

Finding an easy-to-use project finance model for a natural gas CCGT (combined cycle gas turbine) power plant with built-in data is sometimes difficult as some models don’t have the sophistication of a regulator template model as well as the ease of using the model and viewing immediately the results of a sensitivity change in the inputs to the model.

This is now made easy because the Input & Assumptions worksheet (tab) has combined all the input and output information in a single worksheet and placing the reports in other worksheets such as Tariff Breakdown, Construction Period, Operating Period, Financial Reports and Levelized Tariff.

Following is a sample case study on a natural gas CCGT power plant. From the preliminary design and cost estimates, the top management would want to know if the business idea of going into natural gas CCGT power development, construction and operation is worth the effort – is it feasible and what are the economic and financial returns for risking capital.

Here are the inputs and outputs of the advanced template model from OMT ENERGY ENTERPRISES:

How to use the advanced (regulator) geothermal power plant project finance model

Finding an easy-to-use project finance model for a geothermal power plant with built-in data is sometimes difficult as some models don’t have the sophistication of a regulator template model as well as the ease of using the model and viewing immediately the results of a sensitivity change in the inputs to the model.

This is now made easy because the Input & Assumptions worksheet (tab) has combined all the input and output information in a single worksheet and placing the reports in other worksheets such as Tariff Breakdown, Construction Period, Operating Period, Financial Reports and Levelized Tariff.

Following is a sample case study on a geothermal power plant. From the preliminary design and cost estimates, the top management would want to know if the business idea of going into geothermal power development, construction and operation is worth the effort – is it feasible and what are the economic and financial returns for risking capital.

How to use the advanced (regulator) diesel genset power plant project finance model

Finding an easy-to-use project finance model for a diesel genset power plant with built-in data is sometimes difficult as some models don’t have the sophistication of a regulator template model as well as the ease of using the model and viewing immediately the results of a sensitivity change in the inputs to the model.

This is now made easy because the Input & Assumptions worksheet (tab) has combined all the input and output information in a single worksheet and placing the reports in other worksheets such as Tariff Breakdown, Construction Period, Operating Period, Financial Reports and Levelized Tariff.

Following is a sample case study on a diesel genset power plant. From the preliminary design and cost estimates, the top management would want to know if the business idea of going into diesel genset power development, construction and operation is worth the effort – is it feasible and what are the economic and financial returns for risking capital.

Here are the inputs and outputs of the advanced template model from OMT ENERGY ENTERPRISES:

How to use the advanced (regulator) coal-fired PC SUPERCRITICAL power plant project finance model

Finding an easy-to-use project finance model for a coal-fired PC SUPERCRITICAL power plant with built-in data is sometimes difficult as some models don’t have the sophistication of a regulator template model as well as the ease of using the model and viewing immediately the results of a sensitivity change in the inputs to the model.

This is now made easy because the Input & Assumptions worksheet (tab) has combined all the input and output information in a single worksheet and placing the reports in other worksheets such as Tariff Breakdown, Construction Period, Operating Period, Financial Reports and Levelized Tariff.

Following is a sample case study on a coal-fired PC SUPERCRITICAL power plant. From the preliminary design and cost estimates, the top management would want to know if the business idea of going into coal-fired PC SUPERCRITICAL power development, construction and operation is worth the effort – is it feasible and what are the economic and financial returns for risking capital.

Here are the inputs and outputs of the advanced template model from OMT ENERGY ENTERPRISES:

How to use the advanced (regulator) ocean current and tidal current power plant project finance model

(Lord God, bless my website and my readers that they will contribute to my charity fund for the jobless, sickly, needy, homeless, hungry and destitute. God Bless you all my friends for reading my blog and ordering my project finance models. Amen.)

Finding an easy-to-use project finance model for an ocean current and tidal current power plant with built-in data is sometimes difficult as some models don’t have the sophistication of a regulator template model as well as the ease of using the model and viewing immediately the results of a sensitivity change in the inputs to the model.

This is now made easy because the Input & Assumptions worksheet (tab) has combined all the input and output information in a single worksheet and placing the reports in other worksheets such as Tariff Breakdown, Construction Period, Operating Period, Financial Reports and Levelized Tariff.

Following is a sample case study on a tidal current power plant. From the preliminary design and cost estimates, the top management would want to know if the business idea of going into tidal current power development, construction and operation is worth the effort – is it feasible and what are the economic and financial returns for risking capital.

Here are the inputs and outputs of the advanced template model from OMT ENERGY ENTERPRISES:

——————————————————————————————-

Here are the summary of inputs:

all-in capital cost (overnight cost) = 2,473 $/kW (target cost)

EPC cost portion = 1,112 $/kW (computed by model)

How to use the advanced (regulator) solar PV (photo voltaic) power plant project finance model

(Lord God, bless my website and my readers that they will contribute to my charity fund for the jobless, sickly, needy, homeless, hungry and destitute. God Bless you all my friends for reading my blog and ordering my project finance models. Amen.)

Finding an easy-to-use project finance model for a solar PV power plant with built-in data is sometimes difficult as some models don’t have the sophistication of a regulator template model as well as the ease of using the model and viewing immediately the results of a sensitivity change in the inputs to the model.

This is now made easy because the Input & Assumptions worksheet (tab) has combined all the input and output information in a single worksheet and placing the reports in other worksheets such as Tariff Breakdown, Construction Period, Operating Period, Financial Reports and Levelized Tariff.

Following is a sample case study on a solar PV power plant. From the preliminary design and cost estimates, the top management would want to know if the business idea of going into solar PV power development, construction and operation is worth the effort – is it feasible and what are the economic and financial returns for risking capital.

Here are the inputs and outputs of the advanced template model from OMT ENERGY ENTERPRISES:

——————————————————————————————-

Here are the summary of inputs:

all-in capital cost (overnight cost) = 2,700 $/kW (target cost)

EPC cost portion = 2,127 $/kW (computed by model)

How to use the advanced (regulator) onshore and offshore wind power plant project finance model

(Lord God, bless my website and my readers that they will contribute to my charity fund for the jobless, sickly, needy, homeless, hungry and destitute. God Bless you all my friends for reading my blog and ordering my project finance models. Amen.)

Finding an easy-to-use project finance model for an onshore wind power plant with built-in data is sometimes difficult as some models don’t have the sophistication of a regulator template model as well as the ease of using the model and viewing immediately the results of a sensitivity change in the inputs to the model.

This is now made easy because the Input & Assumptions worksheet (tab) has combined all the input and output information in a single worksheet and placing the reports in other worksheets such as Tariff Breakdown, Construction Period, Operating Period, Financial Reports and Levelized Tariff.

Following is a sample case study on a onshore wind power plant. From the preliminary design and cost estimates, the top management would want to know if the business idea of going into onshore wind power development, construction and operation is worth the effort – is it feasible and what are the economic and financial returns for risking capital.

Here are the inputs and outputs of the advanced template model from OMT ENERGY ENTERPRISES:

——————————————————————————————-

Here are the summary of inputs:

all-in capital cost (overnight cost) = 2,213 $/kW (target cost)

EPC cost portion = 1,496 $/kW (computed by model)

refurbishment cost = 5% of EPC cost on the 10th year (overhaul)

fixed O&M cost = 39.55 $/kW/year (target cost) = 16.28 ‘000$/unit/year (computed by goal seek)
