ASIAN EPC ADVANTAGES

Updated: Jul 18, 2023


Asian EPC Advantages

There are some advantages to using Asian EPC to build solar farms globally, but ultimately there are several factors and context-specific considerations to take into account.


One of the Asian EPC advantages is their extensive experience in building solar plants internationally as they can provide cost-effective solutions due to their economies of scale. Their access to advanced technology and equipment that is often not available locally is also undeniable, enabling faster and more efficient projects. However, there are also potential drawbacks.


There may be language and cultural barriers that could affect communication and coordination with local stakeholders, including government agencies, suppliers and sub-contractors. In addition, there may be regulatory and compliance issues that need to be carefully addressed, including local laws and regulations, labor practices, and environmental requirements.


To overcome these drawbacks, first of all, several large Asian solar companies have established subsidiaries or joint ventures in other regions, working with local EPCs. In some cases, these subsidiaries may even acquire or merge with local EPCs to gain a foothold in the market and expand their capabilities.


But there is a better approach. Working with an international integrator through the Integration Coefficient IC model, who has experience in contexts in Asia and other regions, can provide a valuable resource that can bridge those gaps and ensure effective communication and coordination between all parties involved in the project. In addition, the Integration Coefficient IC model can help navigate regulatory and compliance issues by providing expertise in local laws and regulations, labor practices, and environmental requirements. This can help ensure that the project complies with all relevant regulations and standards and minimize potential legal and financial risks.


In addition, the Integration Coefficient IC model can help address the logistical challenges associated with purchasing materials and equipment from multiple vendors with different warranty terms and shipping requirements. The integrator can work with Asian EPCs to ensure that all materials and equipment are sourced and shipped efficiently and effectively, with clear documentation, unified warranty, and quality control processes in place.


It is worth nothing that the choice between using a local EPC or an Asian EPC depends only on the cost that although it is a significant factor in any business decision, it is not the only one. Other factors, such as quality, experience and project management using the Integration Coefficient IC, can also influence the decision to choose an Asian EPC instead of a local one, obtaining double the advantages with the best cost/benefit ratio.
