Demonstration & In-Service Support

“Measuring the performance of the prototype is essential for validation and verification of the technical and commercial models which provides the confidence that stakeholders require to follow their investment and customers to make orders”.

Validation and verification of the performance of your prototype structures and the definition of your site variables is critical in defining an accurate commercial model.

Measuring the efficiency of your system allows reliable predictions of the Return On Investment (ROI) providing investors with a clear measure of success.

Making continual updates to the risk register and assigning probabilities from the demonstration project will define the areas of further assessment and innovation for a more reliable product.

Gaining experience and recording statistics of the long term operating conditions is essential for determining the life, reliability and surviveability of your product. Gathering long term loading information will help inform when to decommission the structure and its potential for life extension or re-use in other projects.
