Elana CHP Modernization Plan (Poland).
Working on behalf of a London based equity fund, GreenMax prepared the acquisition and modernization of an existing 440 MWth, 21 MWe CHP serving the Elana chemical factory in Torun. We developed all technical and commercial documentation to conclude the acquisition and implement a coal-combined cycle gas turbine plant.

  Grant Funding and Direct Investment

At GreenMax we understand that the most critical time for any energy and environmental project is during the development phase. This is the period of highest risk for which funding is always the most difficult to obtain. Using our strong relationships with donor agencies, GreenMax is often able to secure grant or contingent loan funding for early stage feasibility studies. In limited cases we will also invest our own sweat and small increments of cash equity to bring a project to its final preparation so that it is ready for commercial financing.

Sample projects:

Akiira One Ltd. Geothermal Energy Project (Kenya).
GreenMax arranged a $950,000 support package from the US Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) Africa Clean Energy Facility (ACEF), one of the Power Africa programs sponsored by the US Government, for Akiira One Ltd. (“AOL”), a Kenyan renewable energy project development firm, to support the final stages of project preparation for a 40MW geothermal energy project in Kenya. AOL is owned by Kenyan, US and international investors.
The planned project will be constructed on land concessioned to AOL adjacent to the Olkaria geothermal fields, less than 100km outside of Nairobi. A first phase of 40MW will be followed by additional generation capacity totaling 140MW.
The OPIC support package is paying for a highly qualified set of international and Kenyan consultants to perform the final technical and legal work necessary to commence drilling for the geothermal resource early next year.

Kengreen Solar PV Project (Kenya).
GreenMax secured a $427,000 grant from the US Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) Africa Clean Energy Facility (ACEF), one of the Power Africa programs sponsored by the US Government, for Kengreen Energy Ltd. (“Kengreen”), a Kenyan renewable energy project development firm, to support the final stages of project preparation for a 10MW solar PV project in Kenya.
The planned project will be constructed on a more than 40 acre plot secured by Kengreen at Corner Baridi, in the Ngong Hills area, less than 50km outside of Nairobi. Land rights have been secured on currently dormant land from the local Masai community, who will earn sorely needed revenues for local development once the solar farm goes into operation. The grant will pay for a highly qualified set of international and Kenyan consultants to perform the final resource analysis and solar PV system design for the 10MW project, the grid internconnection study to pinpoint how the new power plant will evacuate electricity to the national grid system, an environmental and social impact study up to both Kenya’s and World Bank Equator Principle standards, legal and regulatory due diligence, negotiation of the final Power Purchase Agreement with Kenya Power and the final Engineering and Procurement Contract and Operation & Maintenance Contract, necessary for Kengreen to build and operate the plant with international partners.
