Techno-economic and Financial Feasibility Studies in Saudi Arabia
Assessing the technical, economic and financial viability of your business in the Middle East
If your business is looking to embark on new manufacturing projects or the expansion of existing facilities, ASA Consulting are able to carry out extensive financial feasibility and techno-economic feasibility studies in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East to facilitate new growth and secure funding.
A techno-economic study for a new state-of-the-art production facility includes an appraisal of the following:
- Process and capacity
- Machinery and equipment
- Buildings and civil works
- Operating costs
- Location and site selection
- Organisation and manning
The selected technology and its suitability for the intended application. We will review issues such as the risk of a general shift in the industry towards alternative materials or technologies.
Process and Capacity
The process flow is documented covering the physical processes in the production process. Plant capacity is defined based on standard operating parameters.
Machinery and Equipment
Estimates for items of machinery and equipment are compiled. This includes machinery and equipment for production lines, electrical, water and gas service utilities, ancillary equipment, spare parts and tooling. Also, a review of equipment supplier estimates is undertaken while general plant layouts are prepared that reflect the possible future expansion of plant capacity.
Buildings and Civil Works
The building structures necessary to accommodate the production facility and civil works, with cost estimates for site preparation and development, construction of buildings and offsite works.
Local and imported raw materials, electric, gas and water utilities, plant overheads, general and administrative expenses, management and labour, sales and marketing fees, professional fees, transportation and pre-operating costs.
Location and Site Selection
Infrastructural adequacies as well as the economic aspects of the possible locations for the facilities are examined, within the context of market requirements and the activities required for the supply of materials and delivery of outputs.
Organisation and Manning
An organisation structure and plant personnel requirement, including a breakdown of manning costs for plant operatives and management (Including salaries and benefits, according to industry guidelines). An organisation chart is prepared, indicating the reporting responsibilities of department heads, the manpower number and the skills required.
Schedules for the establishment of project management, arrangements for the transfer of technology, detailed engineering of equipment, tendering, bid evaluation and contracts awarded. Also considered are timescales for financing, erection and commissioning, recruitment and training of personnel, pre-operation marketing and approvals and licensing from the relevant public authorities.
