Engagement Process

juwi’s projects are optimized for the best lifetime costs or savings for clients. We design using Tier 1 technology and state-of-the art principles taking into account project life.

Our funding approach is flexible – we welcome direct capital investment but are happy to provide bespoke funding solutions including non-recourse project funding through PPAs where appropriate.

juwi is a leader in transformation and through our shareholder and partner, the Reatile Group, we can offer part-or fully black owned and score-card optimized solutions.

juwi is also highly experienced with ED and SED initiatives and always delighted to ensure diffusion of advantages to local communities.

juwi experts work together to realise projects by first understanding the customer needs, then developing an optimised design and finally integrating  the plant design.
