Power of Predictability: the best predictor of short and midterm efficiency.
We have structured our organization and approach in a way to have maximum grip. Through this we can predict and realize short and midterm efficiency.
As we are not asset owners, we are independent: together with our client we define common objectives. Towards (contract)partners we can be transparent about what we do and what result has to be achieved.
We invest continuously in innovations. We have a modular method to structure and implement contracts, three times faster than any other contract party. We also have an unique IT – infrastructure. Through this we can adapt rapidly to fast changing circumstances and automate repetitive processes in an efficient way.
Below is an overview of a selection of projects we were involved in and the role and kind of support we delivered. If you require more background information or references, please contact us for further details.

GEMINI OFFSHORE WIND
Offshore Wind Operations
We provide the 24/7 services, as part of Gemini's operations team
We provide 24 hours a day and 7 days a week the coordination of all permit to works, access permits, emergency response, alarms, power offtake, and grid connection. This overview of all operational aspects of the offshore wind enables an integrated approach and a minimum number of interfaces to the contractors, autorities and other stakeholders. The applied top-level SCADA system gives Gemini's operations team the necessary information to secure compliancy towards permits, contracts and power offtake.more about Operations management
TRIANEL WINDPARK BORKUM
Offshore Wind Operations
We provide technical operations management, as part of TWB's operations team
We work according to an integrated approach with proven competencies in the areas of contract management, technical and commercial management: 1. We monitor all production units 24/7/365; 2. We have operational overview of all matters within the wind farm 3. We combine our knowledge and experience of multiple energy assets into relevant performance indicators; 4. We increase the predictability of the power plant by working together with maintenance parties on a higher reliability of the components.more about Technical Operations Management
Concession tenders France
We are helping to create a ‘winning’ business case and future-proof operations strategy.
We designed a high-standard, efficient and effective operational management organisation.
Within a concession tender team, we deliver a tailored O&M expertise and support during the structuring and determine the OPEX of the business case. Based on a Strategic Asset Management Plan the investment risks are identified and the mitigations are know.more about Operational Strategy

Yard Energy BV
Negotiation of Service and Maintenance contracts
We developed risk-reductive and customised Service Level Agreements with O&M contractors.
In large wind assets, shareholders have invested considerable amounts, and very often are involved in contractual and operational issues in detail. In such cases, we were asked to assist at the end of term of an O&M contract period. Based on operational data, existing contracts and conditions, we carried out benchmarking by reversed cost calculation. Like this, negotiations for the following O&M contract period can be carried out with a clear position on organisation structure, pricing and risks involved.more about Contract Development
Negotiations of Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
We developed a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement with Industrial Offtakers
We were asked to guide the tendering process for the power offtake of wind park Krammer, a 102 MWe wind farm. During the tender process a new kind of power offtake structure was developed, direct offtake by corporates and a facilitator role for the daily operations.more about Direct Offtake
- The OutSmart team delivered tailored expertise both during the due diligence and the construction phase. They supported us in the challenges of the project finance process and took care to mitigate construction risks before they popped-up. BNG bank Pauline van Abswoude | Specialist

Business case modelling
We helped to improve the business case.
Poor energy yield calculations led to a systematic wind potential deficit in a 44 MW Onshore wind farm. We were asked by the investment fund to find solutions for cost reduction. Our approach was two-fold: on the income side, we took over wind power forecasting with own developed tools and integrated it with operations management, resulting in a 5% increase of electricity price compared to market price. On the cost side, we changed maintenance contracts from all-in to open, with coordination take-over of all service activities, resulting in a further very considerable maintenance cost decrease.more about Operations Management
