Setting up an independent Power Producer Project requires many strategic decisions. With global market experience on over 5GW of solar PV, solar CSP and wind energy projects, VA Dynamic Energy supports clients in strategic decision making and execution.

Strategic Project Planning Support

To help projects get up and running during the pre-development phase, we assist with grid connection strategy and connection application process. For smaller projects or facilities, we support in tariff analysis, energy consumption, efficiency, and co-generation strategies.

Strategic Development Support

Once a project site has been identified, we assist with site suitability assessments in terms of electrical connection, energy yield estimations, energy storage capacity analysis as well as equipment option analysis.

Technical Advisory Support

For project owners, investors, funders, and lenders we support with project document reviews, such as the PPA, EPC Contract Technical Schedules, O&M Contract Technical Schedules, TSA, LTSA, Balance-of-Plant Contracts and DCUoSA (Distribution Connection and Use-of-System Agreement).

Independent Engineering Support

Every PPA requires a technical advisor that is independent of the Buyer and Seller of power. We support project PPAs with Independent Engineering services that ensure that all technical parameters of the Power Purchase Agreement are adhered to by both parties.

Training & Business Leadership

In his LinkedIn article on June 18, 2019, Prashant Singh said that you must be the mentor you wish you had. We have a passion for training and mentorship, guiding professionals in their technical, leadership and entrepreneurial walks.

Project Construction Support

During the construction phases of wind and solar PV projects, we support the construction phase with the following review services: construction methodology, design for electrical infrastructure and generation plant, construction quality, factory acceptance, construction programme and site acceptance.



VA Dynamic Energy was founded by Thinus van As, a Graduate Electrical Engineer. Thinus obtained a B.Eng. (Electrical/Electronic) in 2001 from the University of Stellenbosch.
