Due Diligence and PAC Support for ESB’s Mill Farm Storage Project

November 2018

Everoze was proud to support ESB in its acquisition of the 7MW Mill Farm Battery Storage Project near Grantham in Lincolnshire. Whilst we initially provided technical due diligence to the project, Everoze’s work was subsequently extended to include a technical review of the documentation and testing at Provisional Acceptance Certification (PAC).

Our scope was to undertake a technical and contractual review of the project design and, post-construction, to review all as-built and O&M handover documentation as well as inspecting the site, developing a punch list and reviewing results from Firm Frequency Response (FFR) test data. We worked closely with both ESB and the EPC Contractor for the project, Anesco, to resolve queries and punch list items and ensure the project and documentation were to an appropriate standard.

Simon Bryars, Everoze project manager for this work, comments that; “It was great to work with ESB throughout the due diligence process and to help ensure the project and contracts met their specific requirements. It was very satisfying being involved in the subsequent PAC review with Robin Redfern and getting the opportunity to visit a completed site with which I’ve been involved during the design and construction stages, especially when it looks as tidy as this one. I very much enjoyed working with the ESB team on this project and helping them to get comfortable with any issues which mattered and to better understand those of less importance.”

Frank Kelly, Solar & Energy Storage Investment Manager for ESB, commented: “I want to say thank you to the Everoze team for all your support in what was a first for ESB. Everoze were very much part of the team. ESB have been very impressed with Everoze and look forward to working with them in the future”
