Bite #4


9.1.2. Site construction due diligence   


The Asset Manager should perform due diligence on the knowledge and expertise of the EPC contractor. All documentation and certification should be digitalised in the Asset Manage1ment Platform’s documentation management system (DMS). Re-certifications and training schedules should be calendarised. 


9.1.3. Optimisation of energy production  



Power plant KPIs and O&M Contractor KPIs, as defined in chapter 11. Key Performance Indicators of the O&M Best Practice Guidelines, should be calculated automatically by the monitoring platforms and should be integrated in the Asset Management Platform and used as a reference for contract compliance. It is important that these KPI calculations take various contractual clauses (exclusions) into consideration, for example in periods of force majeure events.
