Project Development

Burel's central activity is to identify project sites and development opportunities. The goal is to find projects that will be both financial beneficial for local Government and investors. Secondarily it should meet certain requirements of social benefits to the local population and community, develop down-stream and secondary business opportunities for local interest, and offer export opportunities for developing regions. The tasks include design, financial modelling, technical analysis, complete management planning, project execution and operation. 

Technical Design and Analysis

Burel has long standing relationships with a network of technology and engineering firms that are leading innovators in their respective industries. When a project is under consideration, these firms are consulted with regard to design, performance, reliability and other crucial aspects. This allows for cost effective pre-engineering and quicker turn-around time on changes in the project as well as shorter lead-time to construction and commissioning.

Financial Modeling

Burel does all its own financial modeling, whole consulting with financial institutions on the viability of particular assumptions. A local investment banking firm is generally identified to advise on the structure and local market conditions. On larger projects, an international firm will be brought in to represent the project and to market the financial instruments needed for the financing. The financial modelling is based on certain technical assumptions and market conditions including long-term off-take agreement that will guarantee the success of the project. Included are also guaranteed feedstock agreement and certain prices that provides for a minimum profit margin for the project as a whole guaranteeing the IRR.


Burel retains a whole management team for each project. All staff has been handpicked by the management and have experience from other projects. Many will be moved from previous projects to make sure that the technical capability is available. Local staff will be hired whenever possible and training will be provided to ensure that the technical expertise is transferred locally. In addition to the central technical staff, there is a substantial number of non-technical staff that will be secured from locally. The Management will retain control of the project until completion. A mutually agreeable time frame will be worked out for a transfer of the management duties of the staff to local interests.
