  EPC Contracts for Power & Utilities

Mastering contract negotiation, financing, legal and commercial framework, risk and contractor relationship
complexities for successful project development

Dates: 28 - 30 January 2014
Venue: Johannesburg, South Africa


Today, Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) projects are uniquely challenging. Parties currently involved in large complex and fast-track EPC projects frequently suffer financial loss that could have been mitigated by effective contract management. Appropriate practical "know-how" of EPC contracts will improve your ability to take
appropriate steps, or to obtain necessary advice, to minimise or manage such risks.

This intensive workshop provides valuable insight into the rapidly evolving world of EPC contracts. It has been designed specifically for the professionals and management of power and utility industries throughout Africa and will be of particular interest to those with current or planned projects in Africa, Middle East, Europe and the CIS.

You will analyse an EPC contract, clause by clause, focusing on your challenges in international and domestic projects. This unique interactive master class discusses the key issues in EPC contracts which are relevant for lenders, sponsors and borrowers in international construction projects and the keys to deliver successful projects.
