Assessment, aggregation & consolidation of big data to support corporates in their global expansion strategies:

No matter whether you are an investor from Europe, Asia or America: your optimum investment destination requires a professional assessment.

Site Selection Consulting/Location Advisory:

-        Assessment of key criteria for industrial investments and global expansion strategies throughout many of the world's key markets.

-        Identification of the best qualified investment locations.

Based on a profound technological background, site selection references span a wide range of industrial segments, such as:

-        Semiconductors

-        Consumer Electronics

-        Lithium-Ion Cell/Battery Manufacturing

-        Photovoltaics (Ingot, Wafer, Cell, Module)

-        Chemicals

-        Renewable Energy (PV Parks, CSP Power Plants)

-        Automotive

-        Data Centers

-        Consumer Goods



Scope may vary substantially and will be adapted to specific client requirements. Examples include:

Site Selection: assessment of potential regions and sites for a new manufacturing facility

-        in one country

-        in several countries on one continent

-        in several countries on several continents


Scope typically comprises:

-        Regional assessment & site assessment (technical due diligence)

-        Logistics assessment

-        Market assessment

-        Workforce assessment

-        Risk assessment

-        On-site visits

Other specific approaches include:

o   Contracting market, construction labor, permitting regulatory, logistics, business environment

-        Logistics assessment of import/export considerations for critical plant equipment

-        Initial environmental impact assessment to optimize project requirements/layout in terms of non-applicability of Seveso III Directive

-        Verification of applicability of client's generic facility/process equipment layout for select long-listed sites to ensure that no short-list candidate is excluded unfairly



In-depth understanding of interaction complexity between manufacturing technology and resulting site requirements: We consider how changes in manufacturing technologies
impact utilities, factory facility systems and final project/site requirements.

For distinct assessments we make use of software technologies developed by ourselves. Sample applications include PV parks or data centers.


Global Expertise:

Project references cover more than 40 countries on five continents, with a worldwide track record of more than 300 field technical due diligence assessments.
