The KPS BOM contract structure provides a fixed price design, construction and life-cycle power station maintenance solution for life of mine term. This allows KPS to commercially and technically focus on the delivery of a “Best Value” life-cycle generation solution. The KPS power station design, equipment selection, construction and maintenance philosophy is tailored to:
- Deliver industry benchmark high availability and reliability standards for life of mine; and
- Maintain a diligent, continuous improvement program to achieve improved fuel consumption performance and best value cost structures for clients.
Traditionally, procuring on-site power generation at a new or existing mine site is achieved through the purchase of a power station via an EPC or EPCM contract arrangement. The EPC/EPCM supplier typically delivers a low capital cost solution to win the job. However, consideration of long term availability, reliability, maintenance, fuel consumption and mine operating cost outcomes is a lower priority.
By “rolling up” the design, construction, power station availability and reliability, fuel efficiency performance and all maintenance into a single fixed/guaranteed price fuel consumption for life of the mine, KPS is commercially compelled to ensure its clients are delivered a fuel and reliability optimised 24/7 life of mine electricity supply solution.
